Hi to all, i’m new to the forum, and i’m about to buy a Rainbowduino for a project of my own.
I would like to know if it is possible for the Rainbowduino to communicate with an external device via the serial interface using the arduino Serial library.
Here is what i need to do:
Xbee or Wifi Serial ---- tx/rx-----> Rainbowduino -------> Led Matrix
My purpose is to wirelessy collect data from the internet and change matrix colours accordingly (e.g. show different patterns of colour accordingly to temperature values parsed from a webserver).
I’ve already managed to accomplish this with an Arduino, a serial Wifi module and a single RGB Led.
This is the configuration:
Internet ----> AP ----> WiFi Serial Module ----Rx/Tx----> Arduino ----PWM—> Rgb Led.
Is it possible to keep this configuration and substitute the Arduino with the Rainbowduino or do i have to use both of them?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Cheers from Italy!
