Arduino Class - Wireless Connectivity with BlueTooth

This Meetup is past


Come join us at Education Center in Plano TX to learn about the Arduino. In this class we will be covering the following:

Wireless connectivity with Bluetooth, Part 1 ( (12:30) In this presentation, you will learn how to use a Bluetooth breakout board to create a wireless serial connection between your computer and your Arduino. With this connection, your Arduino will be able to send and receive data to and from your computer.

In this part I discuss some basic concepts around Bluetooth, and compare with other wireless technologies, then in demo 1, I demonstrate how to connect the breakout board with the Arduino and establish a serial channel.

Wireless connectivity with Bluetooth, Part 2 ( (9:50) In the second part there are 2 demos. In the first demo, I show how to do 2-way communication, and in the second demo I how to use software serial (instead of hardware serial as in demos 1 and 2). Parts Needed:

Arduino UNO ( An LED ( A photo-resistor ( 2 x 1KΩ resistors ( HC-06 Blue Tooth (
