Description
            This toolbox provides Arduino communication blocks for Xcos.

You need to flash the arduino board with the following file:
toolbox_arduino_v3.ino  

Communication is performed through Serial port.

Only works under Windows platform.

Thank you for the effort in writing this toolbox. It is a pity that this runs only on
Windows. I am not a programmer but 
this can be resolved by defining the com port by its name(ie on a mac:
/dec/ttyusbmodemfd121 or on a windows : 
com2) in stead of just a number. Would be a nice addition to this toolbox if it is
available to mac and linux.

I agree. Using the serial package http://atoms.scilab.org/toolboxes/serial instead would 
 - enable Arduino for Linux (but still not for Mac OS)
 - prevent all unstabilities coming from the Scilab linker: Almost for each new
   Scilab X.Y release, all packages having some gateway (with DLL for Windows)
   must be recompiled before being back usable in Scilab. One of the most uncomfortable
   bad features from Scilab. (there are other weird sources of unstabilities related to 
   gateways. See for instance http://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12674 
   Fortunately, scripts .sci are much more stable)

Is there a help file in english? If not, how can I translate it and replace the french one?
Comment from Pascal Buehler -- November 29, 2013, 10:40:40 AM    
Is there a possibility, to have higher comports than five? in my Windows- System, my 
Arduino Controller is available at Com Port 16 (USB). Is there a possibility to enter a 
higher Com Port as 5. 

Thanks Pascal Bhler
Answer from Jairo Rotava -- November 29, 2013, 02:35:46 PM    
I guess you can change the port number under advance options on Control Panel - COMs. This

should be the easiest way.

Mr JOFRET,

Merci pour ces applications. J'ai un petit problme : dans SCILAB : on me demande de
tlverser toolbox_arduino_V3 et ici, je ne trouve que la V2. 
J'ai tlvers la V2, sait-on jamais, a ne marche pas.
Pouvez-vous mettre la 3 en tlchargement svp?

Cordialement, lionel ANDRE, merci.

Bonjour,

Vous trouverez la V3 en entrant dans le sous fichier macro qui se trouve au mme niveau 
que le dossier qui contient le .ino de la V2

I doing my final year under graduate project in interfacing Arduino with scilab.
The help manual available in French language. I want the soft copy of help manual
for interfacing scilab with Arduino in English language. So that i and my project mets 
can understand the Arduino Atom interfacing with scilab and it will be useful for my 
project also.

Hello Bruno,
It would be fine to tag Arduino as well in the Xcos-blocks category.
Thanks for all
Samuel

This is now done, for the version 1.4
Comment from Cristian Alonso Fiz -- May 31, 2014, 06:18:31 PM    
During this three months I have been using your Arduino code and Xcos blocs to perform my 
real time prototype systems (self-balancing robot) and I had some troubles reading and 
writing my elements through your code.

I have no idea how to modify Xcos blocs and neither how to make a new ones. Then I was 
forced to do some modifications in the Arduino code to interact with my real elements.(IMU

MPU 6050 with I2Cprotocol, two motor driver Pololu VNH5019).

I am writing you if you are interested in hear my troubles and solutions to introduce 
interesting updates in your Arduino code and Xcos toolboxes, it will be very useful for you

and very helpful for the community.
Answer from Jairo Rotava -- June 15, 2014, 12:03:04 AM    
I think I can help you. If you are still interested in this please contact me at 
jairo.rotava@gmail. 

I was working on the translation of the help and code.

Yes, sure!
You may open a ticket on the Scilab Arduino to describe the issue and propose a solution, 
and attach a zip file embedding your contribution.
Thanks

Do not hesitate to open a ticket on the Scilab Arduino forge and to post your contribution

in attachment.
Comment from Yann Haffner -- July 21, 2014, 09:29:04 AM    
I'm trying to control in speed a dc motor at the moment and my aim is to have a sinusoidal
speed in function of the time. So I guess that a sine command should work but actually I
can get the motor to move. Have you already experienced such a motor motion with the
toolbox ? 
Comment from Jegan Amirthalingam -- November 28, 2014, 07:00:22 AM    
I am trying to setup an rapid control prototyping with arduino and this package...but
still i a m facing the error with v2 and v3 ....

Error message.....
il faut charger avec le sketch toolbox_arduino_v3.ino dans la carte arduino
 
 Error occurred in pre_xcos_simulate: Cancelling simulation.  
 at line 50 of function ARDUINO_pre_simulate

I have tried the below link to download v3 http://www.demosciences.fr/projets/scilab-arduino

How to add this /install this package...just replacing in the
scilab-5.5.1/atom/x64/arduino doesn't work....Kindly he me thanks in advance... 
Comment from Cristian Alonso Fiz -- November 28, 2014, 02:58:04 PM    
Try this, 

I am involved in release a new version of the toolbox with the permission and the support
of the 
creators.

By the time, you can use the beta versions instead : 

https://github.com/fizcris/Scilab_Xcos_arduino_toolbox_david_MPU6050

I hope it will be usefull for you.

Dear all
I'm new on SciLab. I'm working with load cells using arduino and need to get the signal
real-time. As orthopaedic 
surgeon/biomechanics I have no experience with programming. Do you guys know anyone could
help me? Thanks so 
much. Cesar
Comment from Francisco-Ronay Lopez-estrada -- July 16, 2015, 07:51:43 PM    
For the problem with ports greater than 9.


Windows: The best solution is just to change the port configuration in device manager.
  1-. Go to device manager
  2. click in properties
  3. click port-setting--> advanced and change the port number 
Note that in some computers there are many Bluetooth devices attached to com 9-10, my 
recommendation is to uninstall these ports.  

For linux I made some modifications to run the V3, and also recognize port 0, just
download

the following file. It runs perfectly

Sir,

I am developing one toolbox currently, I want to know that is there any way to input a 
string to my block instead of a number? 
Comment from Bhargav Makodia -- March 6, 2016, 08:36:55 AM    
I am new to Scilab interfacing to arduino.

Can any one please provide guidance how to start using xcos interfacing with arduino.

Currently have even trouble in blinking led on board. It mentions poor communication 
port.

Thank you,

Hello,

I am trying to follow the examples but I am unable to install the arduino toolbox on my 
windows 64. Usually I install selecting the "box" atoms in scilab but the box
does not 
show the arduino toolbox in the list of toolboxes. I downloaded the file
"arduino_1.1-
1.bin.x64.windows.zip" and unzippedbut after that I do not know what to do to install
the 
tool box and follow the examples.

arduino 1.4 is now available in the ATOMS manager for Windows users

+ Download the latest version from http://atoms.scilab.org/toolboxes/arduino/1.2
+ Copy arduino folder into directory  ~\contrib.
+ At beginning of scilab go to menu Modules and select Arduino. (You can recompile if 
necessary by executing builder.sce but I think it is not necessary.)

Hello Cristian,

I followed your instructions but unfortunately I didn't have success. When I try to 
execute builder.sce Scilab exhibits the following error message:

"
exec('C:\Program Files\scilab-5.5.2\contrib\arduino\builder.sce', -1)
 !--error 10000 
mkdir: Ocorreu um erro: Impossível criar diretório C:\Program Files\scilab-

  main_builder();
at line      51 of exec file called by :    
exec('C:\Program Files\scilab-5.5.2\contrib\arduino\builder.sce', -1)
"
Do you have more suggestions?

Thank you very much

Renato

Are you sure that you have permissions to 
write in the directory you are working? 
Have you tried to execute scilab as 
administrator?
Comment from Renato Canha -- August 25, 2016, 11:12:07 PM    
Yes, I executed as administrator.

Do you have Arduinno toolbox in a windows 64 bits?

Bonjour,
Est-il possible d'adapter ce toolbox à n'importe quelle carte arduino ? Comment peut-on
faire ? 
(arduino nano par exemple )
