The library supports the following operations
- Move Up
- Move Down
- Move Left
- Move Right
The library has a couple of example sketches that explains how to control the Missile Launcher
- MissileLauncher.ino – Shows the normal way of using the library
- MissileLauncherFromSerial.ino – Shows how you can read the command from Serial monitor and control the device
If you want to control the Missile Launcher from your desktop, then you can use the missile-launcher.py script found under the /tools directory
This library requires the USB Host Shield library, without which this can’t work.
Stack the USB Host shield on top of Arduino and connect the USB Missile Launcher in the USB slot of the shield.
I have also uploaded a video in youtube which shows how you can control the device from Arduino.
You can download the library from its github page. The examples are there inside the /examples folder. After downloading place the MissileLauncher folder inside your Arduino’s /library folder
The library and the example are released under released under BeerWare license.
I would, however, consider it a great courtesy if you could email me and tell me about your project and how this code was used, just for my own continued personal gratification 🙂
