I created this extension for all Arduino lovers to be used in your projects. This extension has been created using Physicaloid library.

Some highlights of this extension:
  • USB-Serial communication
  • upload a firmware to an Arduino
  • support on Android 3.1 or higher (need USB Host API feature)
  • does not require ROOT
  • support USB-Serial protocols : CDC-ACM, FTDI, Silicon Labs CP210x
  • support uploading firmware protocols : STK500, STK500V2
Currently, this is just for testing which includes some basic things such as:
  • Open/Close connection
  • Read/Write from/to serial
Other features that need to be included are:

  • Upload .hex files to Arduino
  • Support for upload files from assets folder
Extension has been attached here.

Sir the Extension is very useful. I have downloaded and used it but it is not working. Maybe it is of my fault, anyway it would be better if provide a sample program or the image of the block editor of a sample app. Good Work!

I haven't test it yet with an Arduino. So, I cannot give any word on this. However, I am looking for testers. Would you help me in testing? (It shouldn't take longer that 2 to 3 days)

I have one doubt, That most of the serial communication asks to set the the baud rate and in this I didn't found anything like that.
I have tested it but I got no results. And didn't understood how this extension work without setting the baud rate.

I set the baud rate to be 9600 by default. I will make it able to set baud rates in the next release.

I'm trying but does not working, there is an advertisement (com/physicaloid/lib/usb/driver/uart/UartFtdi).

Whit the same connections I've tried https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=bp.usbbridge.appinvDemo&hl=it  and It is Ok.

Thanks for your idea.

I've seen with DroidScript is possible by USB OTG, receive or write data from/on arduino, I'd like to use app inventor, can you see how DroidScript works and make the same with app inventor?

Thanks a lot.
