My Take

= Get it Running =
  
Instrumentino is an instrument control system designed to interface with various smart or semi smart systems.   
+
I want compile it and run on my UnoSee [[Russ's Computer Environment]]
Prepackaged with the system is a program that makes an arduino a sort of smart sensor ( this in C++ ) and the Python code to interface with this Arduino which we will call the controlino

+
Well, not so bad.  Useful to know that my Spyder already had wxpython, came with it or I installed, who knows.  Also useful to know wxpython is called wx.  This helps a lot.
+
 
+
 
+
== This works ==
+
 
+
Download the file from github, the zip file.  Unzip.  Ignore a bunch of the stuff and take the
+
 
+
        \instrumentino
+
        from ( ........\instrumentino-master\instrumentino )
+
        and copy it to the place where your spyder projects live ( making a new project  instrumentino  )
+
 
+
Find the file:
+
          ......\SpyderP\instrumentino\__init__.py
+
 
+
and modify the top to:
+
 
+
          from __future__ import division
+
         
+
          import sys
+
          sys.path.append( ".." )
+
         
+
          #...... rest of file
+
 
+
This should make it run.
+
 
+
To do much more it seems you need an arduino.

[edit] Draft

Just a draft may or may not be completed. See also: Instrumentino Notes

[edit] What is Controlino

It is the Arduino component of Instrumentino Notes

Links to what the authors think:


[edit] Get it Running

I want compile it and run on my Uno. See Russ's Computer Environment

Ton of files ( well maybe 10 ) on gitHub.

  • Seems the only one that matters much is controlino.cpp.
  • Download it.
  • Make a new arduino project. I called mine controlino_ino.
  • In the project's file, controlino_ino.ino, paste the contents of controlino.cpp.
  • Follow the directions in the file.
  • Compile.
  • Worked the first time.
  • Now have something on my uno. What?
  • More comming

[edit] Protocol

What is the Protocol? Have not found any documents. Reading the code and probing with my terminal. Send a command and get a response.

  • commands appear not to be caps sensitive
  • use a cr at end of commands
  • at end of command Arduino says "done/r"
  • BlinkPin <pin> <ms to blink>
    • BlinkPin 7 200 => works


  • set xxx yyy => sets pin n to input or output ( digital ) if pin is out of range o..
    • set 3 in => think this is correct syntax
    • set in 3 => looks incorrect
    • set xxx yyy => cannot be valid but no error message, no error may be ok
