Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Things Needed
Arduino 101- https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoard101
Adafruit Bluefruit LE app
Arduino Software - I am using 1.6.9
Libraries needed to be installed in Arduino software
- Intel Curie Boards version 1.0.6 (installed under boards manager)
- Firmata 2.5.3
Step 2: Load the Sketch
We will be using the StandardFirmataBLE sketch. It is located in File -> Examples -> Firmata -> StandardFirmataBLE
We do not need to make any changes to the sketch.
Step 3: Set Up Arduino 101
Under Tools make sure you have the Arduino/Genuino 101 board selected and the correct com port. Then upload the sketch.
Step 4: Using the App
Open the app up and connect to the Arduino 101 board. To see if its working we will blink the onboard LED on and off. It is located on pin 13.
Select the Pin I/O tab, scroll down to Pin 13. Select it as output. Then toggle between Low and High. You should see the LED blink.
Step 5: Conclusion
So thats how you connect your Arduino 101 with the Adafruit Bluefruit LE app.
