Serial Communication: Turn On and Off Arduino LED
Wrote a script for the Arduino to listen for a byte of data and depending on that value turn the LED on the Arduino Board On and Off.
The Arduino has a onboard LED linked to the #13 digital Pin. If a byte with the value 1 is sent, the LED is switched On, alternatively when 0 is sent, the LED is switched off. Now that my serial communication app has been tested (Alternative tests done behind the scenes) I can move on to other small projects by monitoring external sensor data :P. stay tuned!
