Need Help Using Bluetooth from Dyalog APL

Postby Erik.Friis on Wed Apr 26, 2017 10:18 pm

Want to talk to a Lego Mindstorms EV3 brick using Bluetooth. My platform of choice is a Mac Book Pro. Can anyone here help me connect the two. I'd like to establish simple synchronous communication at first. Thanks for any help.

Here's a bit of additional information:

The EV3 "brick" has Bluetooth as does the Mac Book Pro, so with the existing hardware and installed drivers I should easily be able to pair the devices. The question is: once they are paired, how can I send a payload of data from the Mac to the EV3 and then receive a reply either synchronously or asynchronously?

If I connect the two devices via WiFi or USB cable would the communication be the same? Is it independent of the type of connection.

Still trying to get my mind around all of this stuff so I appreciate any info.

Sounds like a great application !

Can you please upload a simple diagram or drawing that shows the various "moving parts" (software components and connections) ?

Cheers
