Arduino programming tool.

Hi everyone.

I found an interesting tool for arduino programming. Check it out.

Nifty! I will have to check this out when I get home. Definitely looks like a low cost way to get into model-based software development!

I believe Simulink also supports building for Arduino targets, as a potential “more-industry-standard” alternate to this. However, I don’t know if Mathworks gives out free or cheap-ish licences to FRC teams…

I could definitely see using this if you’ve got some more intense math calculations to offload to a coprocessor? Or want to integrate into some offseason projects? Nice find!

Arduinos are not really a good platform for offloading intense math calculations; their value is in the large number of interface pins per dollar. Raspberry pi or another “micro PC” would be more appropriate for offloading calculations.

On the other hand, having the ability to program an arduino-based robot using this tool sounds great for LabView based teams to do training and off-season projects.
