MKR1000 Windows Remote Arduino with Firmata WiFi

This MKR1000 Windows Remote Arduino with Firmata WiFi guide lays out how I got my new MKR1000 working with Windows Remote Arduino. This guide will walk through:

  1. Setting up the latest Firmata Version with the WiFi support
  2. Verifying with the Windows Remote Arduino Experience App
  3. Controlling MKR1000 with Universal Windows App

Windows Remote Arduino WiFi Lamp with Arduino Yun

In an earlier post i explained how i exposed Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP.   This allowed me to control an Arduino Yun with Windows Remote Arduino over WiFi. This project is a further extension of it in exploring what is possible with Windows Remote Arduino. This time i connected a LED strip (TM1803 based three wire LED strip from Radioshack) to my Yun and controlled its color through an Universal Windows App that uses Windows Remote Arduino. Here is the lamp in action.

Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP

Introduction

This article contains instructions on how to expose the Arduino Yun Serial Port over TCP.

Few days back, the Windows IOT challenge dropped in my twitter feed. While the challenge was very interesting, after poking around the web, I quickly realized that there is no Windows IoT Core for Arduino. Hopefully, sometime soon, Microsoft and Arduino will give us one.

Until then we will have to make do with Windows Remote Arduino. It is essentially a Firmata client library wrapped in a Windows Runtime Component. I had both an Arduino Uno and an Arduino Yun and I wanted to check out the Windows Remote Arduino interfacing.
