Arduino Serial Communication with Python: sending an array

If I use >BBB instead of >iii... That's because "B" is a byte. So you end up sending 3 bytes: struct.pack("BBB", 1, 2, 3) \x01\x02\x03 "i" is an int and has a size of 4, so you send 4*3 = 12 bytes: ...

What's the problem with baudrate?

On a direct USB CDC/ACM connection (as you get on the Micro) there is no such thing as baud rate. Any baud rate setting performed by the host (the PC) is merely an instruction to the device (the ...

How can I execute a string in my Arduino Uno board?

Unless you want to implement some form of scripting engine, you can't. Arduino code is compiled code, not interpreted code. There is no way of converting text into runnable code, since that is done by ...

How to ignore garbage values in serial communication between arduino and python

The effect that you see is type promotion, in the C++ standard called "integral promotion", which happens implicitly. Values of type char are cast to int. Commonly, and in your case too, the ...

You declare incomingchar as a char. In your if you compare that char to a string (double quotes) incomingchar=="g". I think you want to compare it to a char (single quotes) like this: if ( ...

Serial Comm. timing issue between Arduino and Pyserial

Your main problem is in erroneously having a delay in both the sender and the receiver. While this sometimes works by lucky accident, it essentially never does what is hoped for by those who try it. ...

Problem sending string with Python to Arduino through serial port

The AVR Arduinos (Uno, Nano, Mega) have auto-reset function. At opening of USB connection the circuit around USB resets the MCU. After reset the bootloader waits a second for a new upload. If the ...

Installing Pyserial

I'm pretty sure that what you are trying to do is actually call 'python setup.py' within the python script itself. Which you cannot do. The easiest way to install pyserial is via pip like so. (Windows)...

Why is communication between a Python program and Arduino not producing the expected result?

In your test with the serial monitor you are putting spaces between each number. Using my logic analyzer I got this being sent from your Python code to the Arduino: No spaces, right? So the Arduino ...

What is the difference when an arduino has been unplugged vs when a serial port connection was closed?

We cannot know, if your python code also has a problem. But your Arduino code will send the series of "V" only once. You are using this while loop: while(counter < maxnum) in there you ...
