Program Your Arduino With an Android Device!




Hi,

in this Instructable I want to show
you, how you can program your Arduino with your Android device. It is
very simple and cheap. Also it allows us to program our Arduino where
ever we want, this is usefull for permanently installed Arduino boards,
like in light controllers…




So lets get started! πŸ™‚

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials:

A USB-A to USB-B cable ( http://www.amazon.de/AmazonBasics-USB-2-0-Kabel-A-… )

A USB-Host cable (OTG cable) ( http://www.amazon.de/USB-OTG-Adapterkabel-Adapter-… )

An Arduino( http://de.farnell.com/ )

1 LED (for testing)

A Android device with Android 4.0.0+ (or with host aviability)

Software:

ArduinoDroid or

ArduinoCommander from the Google Play store

Step 2: The USB-Host Cable

Such a USB-Host cable is basicaly just a USB
cable, but just with a few changed resistors in the mikro USB plug. The
internal resistors let the Android device activate the USB-Host mode, in
this mode you can also use USB-Sticks or other usb applications on the
device. That is very useful, now you could plug a usb-printer in.

The problem is now, that every USB device which you plug in, will now run on the energy of your device, what realy can bring the akku down.

Step 3: Connections

This step is very simple and doesnΒ΄t require much text. Just plug the USB-A to USB-B cable into the female USB of the Host cable. Then plug the USB-B plug into the Arduino and the Mikro USB into the Android device.
