Arduino is a well know and widely used open source microcontroller. Is is extremely cheap (10-20 €/$) and a plenty of sensors and actuators have been desined for this platform.
The idea is to implement a link between 3D Slicer and Arudino.
Slicer IGT offers an outstanding solution for connecting hardware, but for some entry-level users/students can be difficult to use. We want to develop a thin layer of code to connect cheap hardware (Arduino and its sensor/actuators). In this way the user will have a simple way for linking hardaware, being aware that is a solution that does not offer the full options available in SlicerIGT.
It can be useful for students and for not complex data/instruction stream.
- The main aim right now is to colled ideas/comments/suggestions from experts.
Approach and Plan
- Discuss with people that are already using/developing Arduino stuff.
Progress and Next Steps
- Interesting a breakout session, discussing with experts and people interested in
- We decided to not use SlicerIGT to keep it as simple as possible
- We decided to create an extension with multiple modules inside
The first layer of code was written (thanks to Andras!)
- The next step will be to refine the link module and to start writing more modules (one for each possible application).
