Hi, I'm trying to write a very simple program to graph data via Bluetooth accelerometer (which runs on COM6). All I need is for it to take ASCII datathat comes into Hyperterminal like this:
to then be graphed vs. time in real-time, with perhaps a quick averaging algorithm to reduce noise. That's it. Could anyone point me in the right direction.
Basically, I'd need it to be able to do this:
1. I have to connect the program to the Accelerometer via COM6
2. I have to then press "1" to start the data transmision, which could be tied into a "Start" button
3. Graph that data vs. time until i hit some sort of stop button
That's it. Anyone? Help would be GREATLY appreciated. This is for a physics application that we plan to take to Highschools to get kids more interested in Engineering as a profession. I am in Mechanical Engineering at Ohio State and have absolutely no experience programming. I downloaded SharpDevelop, but am really just lost. If anyone knows of good tutorials, existing programs, or wants to take a stab at it, I would be forever greatful.
Thanks so much
