Man Cave Sign – chipKIT with Bluetooth App Control

HC-05 or HC-06 Bluetooth Module

As a follow-on to a previous post about the “Man Cave Sign,” we wanted to share with you the portion that used Bluetooth and Android Apps. This tutorial by Darryl Gardner will show you how you can use the two apps he wrote (on the Google Play Store) along with an HC-05 or HC-06 Bluetooth module and a chipKIT-based device to transmit and receive data to and from the Bluetooth Module and the PIC32 MCU device. He also provides some sample sketches to get you up and running!

Bluetooth low energy for ChipKit

I have successfully ported the Bluetooth low energy SDK for Arduinoto the ChipKit. I started with the Bluetooth low energy API for Arduino. The ported sketch and library is available from my box account as a zip file. (unfortunately there does not seem to be a way to attach files to this post) https://app.box.com/s/v6ubqa6ta56klcmikm8n  (ble-sdk-chipkit.zip  460.7 KBytes) More details are present in the readme files and documentation in the download.   The shield that I used is here http://www.makershed.com/Bluetooth_Low_Energy_BLE_Shield_for_Arduino_2_0_p/mkrbl1.htm http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/bluetooth-40-low-energy-ble-shield-v20-p-1631.html The code has been tested with an UNO32 and the shield with nRF UART (free app to send and receive data over BLE). Apple iOS (nRF UART): https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/id614594903?mt=8 (iPhone 4S or later, iPad 3 or later, iPad mini or later) Google Play (nRF UART): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nordicsemi.nrfUART (Samsung S3) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nordicsemi.nrfUARTv2 (Android 4.3 and later)
