Run YARB console for android on an Axon?
« on: July 04, 2010, 03:54:42 PM »
I have seen a YARB run on an SRV
micro controller with an android console application.
Could I do the same with an Axon via bluetooth? If not, could I do it with any of the other mcu listed on your pages?
Thanks!

The YARB console and variations of the SRV1Console on Android use a TCP connection.  It might be possible to modify that code to support other network interfaces such as Bluetooth or other serial devices, but you'd have to look at the Android API to figure this out.  The java-based SRV1Console that runs on Windows/Mac/Linux hosts does support serial interfaces.

I don't quite understand the question, but it sounds like you are asking if you can use an Axon + Android phone (with bluetooth) to control a blimp?

If so, then yes. All you need is a hyperterminal style program on the Android phone, and either your phone or the transmitter on the blimp needs host-level bluetooth.

Just google around for this, you'll find a lot of info.
