Re: how to connect arduino pro mini to pc via usb

Pro mini requires an FTDI Board or an FTDI Cable or some kind of USB to Serial converter to talk to the PC (or to upload programs).

Re: arduino

Here is a link to help you get started with connecting your Keyboard to your Arduino via PC - tronix stuff . The code is rather simple, you first need to see what type of data are you dealing with in the Serial Monitor. int character = 0; // for incoming serial data void setup() { Serial.begin(9600)...

Re: arduino

If you need to control your robot using a Computer's Keyboard, you will need your PC to be connected all the time to Arduino Board through a USB Cable.
Or, you may control it using Push buttons rather than a PC's keyboard.

Re: arduino

The motor's specifications state that it is a 12V DC motor with 300mA max Load Current.
You may drive this motor using an L293D Motor Driver IC.

Re: BMP085 with Arduino Mini Pro 3.3V MHz

Have you tried increasing the delay as mentioned in the comments: you may need to increase some of the delays in the bmp085ReadUP and bmp085ReadUT functions. Also, if that does not work, you may try this code from Jeff Rowberg's I2CDevLib Repository . [It mentions to use the Serial.begin() function ...

Re: arduino

What kind of control are you looking for - a wired system or a Wireless system?
Also, what kind of motors are you using - Brushed/ Brushless DC?
Any specifications available for the motor, like watt rating, etc?

Re: How to get 9 DOF IMU sensor stick to work on arduino?

Hardware: You need to connect the SDA, SCL lines to Arduino's SDA, SCL (if it is Rev 3) or to A4, A5 pins respectively. Also, note that since 9DoF Sensor Stick has an onboard 3.3V regulator, you need to power it up by at least 3.5V (best way is to use 5V). Software: Do you need the raw sensor readi...

Re: IR SENSOR

The IR LED (Rx) has a black coating on it. The Tx is the usual clear or violet colored LED. As a starting point, you may detect objects upto 6 inches apart. You will need to connect everything according to the following schematic: [See Image attached] Example Arduino Code: int Alert = 2; // Connect ...
