Quik start

 

Use URDC

 

Used software modules:

Download the connection module for Arduino with an example (URDC.RemoteDeviceControl).

Download the Device Adapter for Windows (URDC.DeviceAdapter).

Download the Control Panel for Windows (URDC.ControlPanel).

Consider the application of a simple system URDC device. Device Task:

- transfer to a remote control panel (URDC) about pressing the button on the device,

- enable/disable the LED RGB through a remote control panel (URDC).

In this article we will look at the connection option Arduino to the internet via a PC running Windows:

component scheme pc

 

Advanced diagram describing as software modules (previously downloaded) will be used in the general infrastructure:

Driving device:

Prepare Arduino

Installing RemoteDeviceControl library

RemoteDeviceControl_vX.X.X.zip unpack the archive in the Libraries directory of your Arduino development environment, for example:

D:\Arduino\arduino-1.6.12-windows\arduino-1.6.12\libraries

Run the Arduino development environment

Arduino IDE start

Check for installed libraries:

Arduino IDE 1

Open the sample library RemoteDeviceControl (File -> Open...):

Arduino IDE 2

If you have collected the device according to the above mentioned schemes, the code that you have opened, do not need to change anything, all the pins in the example code shown correspond to the scheme (above).

Specify the device type:

Arduino IDE 4

Compile, if done correctly, the compilation is successful:

Arduino IDE 3

Specify your Android device port (how to find the port Arduino device, how to install a driver Arduino). Your port may be different from that in the image below:

Arduino IDE 5

Upload program in Arduino:

Arduino IDE 6

Device adapter

Device adapter - software for PC - the intermediary between your Arduino device and the Internet.

Unpack URDC.DeviceAdapter_vX.X.X.zip.

Configure the adapter:

Open the text file /ini/config.ini from the unpacked folder.

Enter the Login, Password.

Enter the device name in the DeviceName field, because you can have several of their devices!

Specify the name of the control panel in the Control Panel Name field, and after all the control panels can be several!

Fields Frontend and Backend leave unchanged.

DevicePort - port name that is connected to your Arduino. (How do you know the name of the port to Arduino)

Save the configuration file config.ini and run URDC.Device Adapter.exe

You will see something like the following:

DeviceAdapter 1

ControlPanel

Unpack URDC.ControlPanel_vX.X.X.zip.

Configure the program through configuration file /ini/config.ini

Specify the field Login | Password the same as when setting DeviceAdapter in the previous step.

ControlPanelName and DeviceName must also match the settings DeviceAdapter!

Frontend и Backend оставляем без изменений.

Run the program URDC.ControlPanel.exe

ControlPanel 1

Congratulations we have raised all the infrastructure and set up!

Check system

Arduino device must be connected to a PC.

Programs should be run: URDC.DeviceAdapter (on the PC, which is connected Arduino device on this PC to be an internet connection), URDC.ControlPanel (on any PC that has access to the Internet).

The data flow from the device to the control panel:

We need to see how the control panel changes the parameter "but1" with the "DOWN" to the "UP" and vice versa.

On the device, press the button and see what happens to the window control panel. We should see something like the following:

ControlPanel use 1

If we observe, everything is done correctly and you can control your device from anywhere in the world where there is Internet ))

 

Check the flow of data from the control panel to the unit:

Turn on red module (4 digital pin) LED, the other is off.

To do this, we point to the name of the control parameter "RGB_LED" (defined by the device, this value can be found in the Arduino code) and the value of "R". If you want to include all of the modules, please indicate "RGB".

ControlPanel use 2

If as a result we see that the red LED module, then it is working! Try to include different combinations of the LEDs.
