PCom Update: multiple serial input

I’ve been mostly working on viz class and pcom mid term over the weekend. One big thing is I once made the eight-buck-deal RF Link work in the studio, but never succeeded in testing again since I went back to the dorm. I used software serial library to utilize digital pins as serial input/output and leave the original serial port for computer monitoring, but the RL Links still feel like a black box to me. The transmitter side looks working perfectly while I hooked up a USB cable and tried to read the TX stream, however the receiver side keeps getting rubbish data. More efforts are to be invested on this issue!!

Just a quick update on the multi-serial-input, shown as the video below (yes I still love my force sensors):

It’s pretty simple, just using two serial inputs. But the concept of encoding data and protocol is pretty clear.

Arduino Code:

int leftPin = 4;
int rightPin = 5;
int leftValue,rightValue;

void setup()
  beginSerial(9600);  //set up communication back to pc

void loop()
  leftValue = analogRead(leftPin);
  rightValue = analogRead(rightPin);

  //if (abs(leftValue - rightValue) > 50)

Processing Code:

import processing.serial.*;

Serial myPort;
String data;
int leftValue = 0;
int rightValue = 0;

void setup()
  size(800, 600, P3D);
  directionalLight(126, 126, 126, 0, 0, -1);
  ambientLight(102, 102, 102);
  myPort = new Serial(this, Serial.list()[0], 9600);

void draw()
  float leftR = map(leftValue,0,1023,0,PI/2);
  float rightR = map(rightValue,0,1023,0,PI/2);

  translate(width/2, height/2);
  rotateZ(rightR - leftR);
  translate(map(rightValue - leftValue,-1023,1023,-250,250),-25);

void serialEvent(Serial p) {
  String input = p.readStringUntil(10);  //make sure you return (Ascii 13) at the end of your transmission
  if (input != null)
    String[] parts = input.split(",");  //this will only work if you put commas (Ascii 44) between things in your transmission

    if (parts.length >= 2)
      //println("Raw Input: " + input);
      if (abs(int(parts[0]) - leftValue) > 10)
        leftValue = int(parts[0]);
      if (abs(int(parts[1]) - rightValue) > 10)
        rightValue = int(parts[1]);
