Bluetooth + Arduino UNO Proteus ISIS Connection

Hello everyone,
I've been trying for 1 week now about this problem and still can't find a solution. I'm trying to connect my arduino with the inventor app i created. The connection between my PC and the phone works but I'm not receiving any data.

Arduino print code:

    digitalWrite(12, LOW);

App Inventor block:

PS: bluetooth DelimiterByte is : 10

And for proteus, I've created a new COM port added it to the HC-05 bluetooth component and still not receiving any data.

Would appreciate your help, thanks in advance!

Hello Hachem

Well, your Topic description is a bit confusing :upside_down_face:

Concentrating on Arduino to App:

Use 9600 baud rate: Serial.begin(9600);

Change: Serial.print("\n")
To: Serial,println()

I can only assume you have the print code inside the Main Loop. The only data the App will receive is whatever the value of 'i' is - which we can't see the assignment of in your snippet (far better to give variables meaningful names).

  • Ensure your App Clock Timer is a bit faster than the Sketch Loop - say 1000 milliseconds.
  • Ensure the device you are running the App on has Location switched on (and bluetooth!)
  • In your Clock1 Timer Block, use an Else to indicate connection is lost.
  • The Assignment to Label8 is pointless, add an Else to indicate if there are no bytes to receive.

Here is an example App Inventor project that collects one value from an Arduino (or other microcontroller using Bluetooth Classic):

... and this is a basic Ardunio Sketch (.ino) that sends one value:

//ArduinoToApp.ino  Chris Ward 29/10/2019 21:56:22

//Fake data stream to test App

//include the library code:
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

unsigned int igUpdateTime;

void setup()
       igUpdateTime = millis();

void loop()
	  if(millis() - igUpdateTime > 2000) //Loop approx every 2 seconds
           igUpdateTime = millis();

           if (Serial.connected())
                     //To App via Bluetooth
                     Serial.println();  //This tells App "End of Data"
                                        //= Ascii LineFeed Char Num 10

Thank youu it worked! Looks like i had some COM ports problem but your aia file helped a lot!
Appreciated mate.
