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/
- Jetpack buetooth Shield
- DS18B20 temperature sensor(or any sensor that you want to monitor)
- 4.7k resistor
- Arduino IDE
- Processing software
Step 1: Connect Your Temperature Sensor As Shown
Mount jetpack shield onto Arduino board and connect the temperature sensor
Step 2: Turn on Your System's Bluetooth and Pair It With Jetpack
Click on "pair" with unknown device which shows up on the Bluetooth discovery list
Step 3: Enter the Password and Press Next
The default password is '1234'
Step 4: Open Bluetooth Setting From the Bottom Right of Your Task Bar
Right click on the Bluetooth icon on the task bar, click on ''settings"
Step 5: Find Out Your "Outgoing COM Port" by Clicking on COM Port Tab
Here its COM10 by the name Jetpack
Step 6: Open Arduino IDE, Select Outgoing COM Port and Upload Sketch Wirelessly!
- Open the tools Tab in the Arduino IDE
- Select "Port COM10" option
- Select the outgoing COM Port
- Upload sketch
The code is given below
