Introduction: Controlled Arduino From PC (CAP)

About: A candle loses nothing of its light when lighting another

In this project, we will be making a Controlled Arduino that control LED through PC with Visual Basic. It’s a fairly quick project and can be used either on its own or part of something bigger.

Step 1: List of Material

For this project, we will be using:

- Arduino boards

- PC (Visual Studio installed)

- Protoshield (optional)


Step 2: Hardware Connections

Step 3: Visual Basic Programming

Below is the preview and source code of CAP code.Upload Arduino_Remote.ino to Arduino, Execute Visual Basic program from debug folder/VB_Remote.exe , and you should have no problem.

Step 4: Enjoy!

After making sure that everything works smoothly, you can take this project into bigger project that need Controlled Arduino. Power through batteries or a plug and you’re good to go!
