JavaFX Charts with Arduino Data – Data Visualization Tool for Multiple Arduino Sensor Values #ArduinoMonday
Thanks to Roberto for writing in to share his project! Check out more info here.
Serial Plotter, by onebeartoe.com, is a cross platform data visualization tool. It uses JavaFX APIs to graph real-time data. This guide uses an Arduino Uno to generate the serial data used as input into the serial plotter application.
This project started out as a heart beat display for a Halloween 2015 costume.
To aid with testing, that project used the Arduino IDE serial plotter to visualize heart rate sensor data.
Soon after getting the Arduino serial plotter going, I realized it would be nice to plot more than one input variable from the serial port.
So I created this app, written JavaFX, to graph multiple inputs from an Arduino serial connection to the PC.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
