Introduction: Arduino Bluetooth Shield for Wireless Programing and Data Monitoring - Jetpack

Picture of Arduino Bluetooth Shield for Wireless Programing and Data Monitoring - Jetpack

Wouldn't it be wonderful to program your Arduino wirelessly? All of us know how annoying it is to have to plug in your Arduino project into a computer every time we have to upload a sketch, debug or read some information over serial monitor. Just imagine a project with lots of sensors and you need to unplug everything just to reprogram your Arduino.

Jetpack is a Bluetooth and motor driver shield to program Arduino wirelessly. We thought real time data monitoring would be an interesting application so we have a designed a temperature monitoring system here, you can read the data with a temperature probe and you can plot it in real time with the processing software

Got 750% funded on Kickstarter! We are amazed by this response and so jet pack is now available for pre-order on http://www.jetpackshield.com/

Things required:

Hardware

  • Arduino
  • Jetpack buetooth Shield
  • DS18B20 temperature sensor(or any sensor that you want to monitor)
  • 4.7k resistor

Software

  • Arduino IDE
  • Processing software

If you want this shield we are live on kickstarter http://kck.st/1R3PIWE

Step 1: Connect Your Temperature Sensor As Shown
