Title: can you update the program wirelessly?
Post by mga on 11/10/10 at 16:50:59
Hi

I am working on a remotely-controlled "robot". It will be controlled by a Wiring Mini and receiving data via Bluetooth. I would like to do updates to the robot after assembly in case I want to implement a new functionality with the existing hardware. Is this possible or do you always need to do updates to the program via USB?

Thanks

Yes, as long as you're able to reset the board before attempting to upload. The BT dongle Tx Rx should be connected to Serial (pins 32 and 33).

Ok. So if I have the Bluetooth antenna connected to 32, 33, and if that antenna indeed does reset Wiring when connected (it does or so it seems), it's just a matter of selecting it in the Tools > Serial port menu and pressing Upload?

yes, just select the right serial port (the one corresponding with the BT).
