In this lesson series, we will learn about computer-to-Arduino interaction. More specifically, serial communication, web serial, and using p5js to communicate with Arduino.
In this lesson, we’ll dive into asynchronous serial communication and how we can use it for bidrectional
Computer ↔ Arduino communication. We’ll show example serial communication clients using terminal programs and Python.
In this lesson, we look at creating more complicated p5.js + Arduino applications that bidirectionally communicate together both Arduino to p5.js (
Arduino → Computer) as well as p5.js to Arduino (
Computer → Arduino).
In this lesson, we will bring everything together thus far to build a fully interactive p5.js + Arduino painting application, called PaintIO, with bidirectional serial communication and a custom paintbrush controller using an accelerometer to control brush location, a force-sensitive resistor to control brush size, and bimanual interaction using both Arduino + the mouse simultaneously for drawing.
