Arduino USB Terminal

During the isolation period caused by Corona, I was playing around with Arduino as a quite small hobby in my free time to create a simple robot that is being controlled by Android. πŸ™‚

The robot uses an Arduino and a Motor Shield to control the motors, but since I am an Android developer, I wanted to somehow make use of Android to control it. πŸ“±πŸ€–

The concept is simple: There is an Android phone on the robot which is connected to the Arduino via a Bluetooth cable and sends commands to Arduino to control the motors.

Because of that, I had to test the USB connection between the Android phone and the Arduino, so I created a simple terminal to achieve this. But the terminal can be used for many more purposes than testing this robot, so I decided to publish it as an open-source project on GitHub and also a free app on Google Play Store:

Get it on Google Play

The robot itself, is still under construction πŸš§Β πŸ”¨ and I will probably send a photo of it when it is done, but until then, please feel free to use the new Terminal and I am looking forward to receiving your feedback. πŸ˜‰
