Mobile phone/Arduino Bluetooth interface

Posted on Monday, September 30th, 2013 in LEDs, wireless by the machinegeek

Kerimil has created another app for interfacing mobile phones and microcontrollers through Bluetooth. This time it’s a simple phone controlled RGB LED. The Arduino sketch/code can be found in his Arduino Forum post. The Android .apk file can be downloaded from Google docs, as well as a zip file containing the Android source.

    I used it once. It’s a kludge. It crashes all the time.

      Ohh god thx for posting it
      I couldn’t get it to crash but then I noticed that the sketch I pasted on arduino forum lacks one line in void setup >


      I must have selected the wrong window when copy pasting – it’s now fixed.
      Anyway just to make everything neater I upgraded the app to only send values when they change

    I guess this is regular bluetooth, I think 2.1 is the version, correct?
    This would be easy with bluetooth 4.0 ;)

    It does not support BLE yet.
