A sample code(Library for Arduino :UH/examples/Serial_Unity_Processing) is already uploaded in UnlimitedHand when it is delivered.



With the sample code and the Serial Monitor, a few tests can be run to check the Serial Connection.

Input 'T' into the text box, and click on the "Send" button.
As a result, the UnlimitedHand should vibrate once.

Input another 'T' into the text box, and click on the "Send" button.
This time, photo-reflector sensor values will be displayed on the Serial Monitor.
step4_6.png

Input yet another 'T' into the text box, and click on the "Send" button.
Angles, temperature and the gyro sensor values will be displayed on the Serial Monitor.
step4_7.png

Input and send the final 'T' and Standard Electric Muscle Stimulus are delivered.
The standerd electric mucle stimuli are given.
