Controlling 8 LEDs with Android phone

In this application, we control 8 LEDs with an Android program written in Flutter-Dart codes. We are sending data to bluetooth module using Flutter-Dart, slider object.

On the microcontroller side, these data received by the bluetooth module are converted into digital data and we send a signal to the leds.

At the beginning of our training video, we explain how to set the Master/Slave of the Bluetooth module.

The data obtained with the Myserial.readString function from the microcontroller codes is of string type. The value of this string type led_count=rec_data.toInt(); We convert it to an integer value with the function. For example, if the value read from the Bluetooth module is "6", this numeric is converted to 6. With the for loop, the value "HIGH", that is, "1", is sent to the pins from 1 to 6.

In the Flutter-Dart coding part, the value from the Slider object is sent with the basic functions "sendData()". The sendData() function runs whenever the value of the Slider object changes.


Flutter-Dart Codes are given below:

//import 'dart:convert';

  List<BluetoothDevice> _devices = [];
  late BluetoothConnection connection;
  String adr="00:21:07:00:50:69"; // my bluetooth device MAC Adres
  double sval = 1;
  String leds="--";
  late int ledint=0;

  void initState() {

Microcontroller codes are given below:

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>

SoftwareSerial mySerial(10, 11); // RX, TX
String rec_data="-";
int led_count=0;

void setup() {
   pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(7, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(6, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(4, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(3, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(2, OUTPUT);
   pinMode(1, OUTPUT);
  mySerial.begin(9600);   // BlueTooth Data baud,set the data rate for the SoftwareSerial port

void loop() { // run over and over
  if (mySerial.available()) {
     for(int s=1;s<=8;s++)
               {digitalWrite(s, LOW);}
       for(int s=1;s<=led_count;s++)
