A nice talk by Peter Kropf at PyCon 2012 on using Python to control external devices through an Arduino.

    I’ve been working on a python-to-Arduino communication library (too). https://github.com/markfickett/DataReceiver

    It handles passing arbitrary data, not just single-byte commands; my main use is sending color data for an addressable RGB LED strip. It does not have error detection/correction; Peter Kropf’s talk makes it sound like that would be a good addition. If CommandControl.ino is the whole of Peter’s library (in https://github.com/pkropf/pycon2012 – I skimmed the talk, just looking for the link), then it wins for size; though I include a matching Python-side library for full encapsulation.

    Thanks for this. Back in 2005 I had an engineering degree project that was doing the same thing, but with Perl and the communication protocol was without error proofing. Today I wanted to reedit that project, so if you like view the result here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CM_q1GOwuM&feature=youtu.be
    This time based on Python.:-)
