sensors and wireless transmitting

February 9, 2008 | 2:52 am

Is there a solution for wireless transmitting of data generated by sensors?

I am currently working on a project where that is need.

bluetoth arduino would work unless you need wide coverage.

You could use a wireless network, like wifi, and transmit data via OSC to and from Max. I’ve read some wifi routers actually being able to be hacked to run as wireless devices.

I believe some control boards might be able to run off a wifi with a USB network stick, but I’m not positive about that.

I’s start with the arduino, they’re relatively cheap, the bluetooth model’s the most expensive.

hello… I was interested in this thing, investigate a little, and found some good options, here you have the links:

for midi wireless, the best:

The picture shows both a USB and a DC connector. There isn’t much
description. How is this wireless?

I’ve done this using a bluetooth CUI made by Dan Overholt.

They used to cost $200 though the price isn’t marked on the site. He also gives instructions for making your own.

More information here: http://www.create.ucsb.edu/~dano/CUI/

Near the bottom of the page for the bluetooth bit.

An even lower budget solution would be to hack a wireless game pad or a wiiremote, depending on how many inputs you need.

I used the Infusion Systems WiMicroDig in a theatre production. One
of the drawbacks I found with using BlueTooth is that it needed to be
manually reset whenever an actor wearing the transmitter moved out of
range (to dressing room). Kind of tough to have an engineer reaching
to reset that system while trying to mix.

Just an FYI.

MidiTron Wireless (http://miditron.com) is designed to address many
of the problems I’ve seen in this thread:
- No Bluetooth, no resetting
- Much larger range than any Bluetooth solution
- Transmitter is a single, small unit so no need to use a sensor box
plus a wireless MIDI unit
- Minimal hacking – all you need to do is wire up or by pre-wired
sensors. Extensive instructions on wiring sensors can be found here:

Plus, I’m always here to answer your questions :-)

A tutor of mine used a radio mic to send his controller data, not sure
exactly how he went about it though.
