Arduino Slicer

Key Investigators

Project Description

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.

Objective

  1. The main aim right now is to colled ideas/comments/suggestions from experts.

Approach and Plan

  1. Discuss with people that are already using/developing Arduino stuff.

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Describe specific steps you have actually done.
