Processing is a programming environment and framework optimised for graphics. It is easy to learn, and great for visualising data that come from your Arduino. In the presentations that follow you will be shown how to create a user interface on your computer in which you visualise data transmitted from your Arduino via USB, and how to control an LED on the Arduino from your computer.

Using Processing (the language) with the Arduino, Part 1 ( (14:50) Part 1 is an introduction to Processing and beginning of the demonstration

Using Processing (the language) with the Arduino, Part 2 (12:05) Completion of demonstration from Part 1
Parts Needed:

Arduino UNO ( A DHT sensor ( 2 x 10KΩ resistors ( 1 - 220Ω resistor ( 1 - potentiometer ( 1 - 5mm LED (

The Processing language ( Open Processing, a source for Processing scripts ( Artoo, a Ruby framework for controlling Internet of Things platforms ( Firmdata, allows a client to connect to the Arduino then use it to send and receive data from the IO ports. ( Course work for this class comes from Arduino Step By Step ( which has over 20 hours of content in 110 lectures. These classes are designed for anyone interested in learning electronic design and C programming. No experience is required. Access to the course material is free at our meetups.
