Getting Started: Arxterra Control Panel & Android Applications Create An Account Connect On App Log In To Control Panel Tommy Sanchez - EE400D
How To Create An Account: visit Hover over My Account and click Register. The username provided on the registration page will be required for the control panel and for the arxterra app.
To get access to the apps you must In the state: Your phone model Android OS version You are in EE400D and would like access to the Android Uno Communicator and ArxRobot App Please use the Gmail account associated with your google play account when sending the . Getting Access To Apps When you receive a response, there will be an invitation to join the Google group ArxRobot Testers in the body of the . To accept, click the Accept This Invitation button. You will be taken to a confirmation page. Note: The invitation expires after so many days so make sure to accept as soon as possible.
Getting Access To Apps Before methods are shown, go back to the received as it contains two links: ArxRobot App https://play.google.com/apps/testing/air.com.ar xterra.arxrobot Arxterra Arduino Uno USB OTG (Arduino Uno Communicator) App https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.arxter ra.arduino.listener The next step is to download the apps: Method 1: Using computer Method 2: Using Android Phone NOTE: Arduino Mega ADK users only need the ArxRobot App
Getting Access To Apps This step is the same for both methods: NOTE: Arduino Mega ADK users only need the ArxRobot App Clicking on the links provided In the (or on previous slide) will take you to the following pages. The page may ask you to join the test, if so, accept. If it says you are a tester then click the Download [App name] from the Play Store link at the bottom.
Getting Access To Apps After clicking on Download [App name] from the Play Store on your computers browser, you should be directed to that apps page similar to what is seen below. Click Install on this page. Method 1: Using Computer (Must still be logged in to your Gmail account) When this windows appears choose your device and click install. A new window will show: Click OK

When the App permissions window appears click ACCEPT. The app will then download to your phone. Method 2: Using Android Phone
Connect On App (Arduino Uno Communicator) When using an Arduino Uno, the Arduino Uno Communicator app must be opened first to enable communication between the Uno and Android Phone. If using the Arduino Mega ADK this step is not necessary. When opened the Arduino Uno Communicator app will simply state if a device has been found and if its receiving. If it says no device found, please check your cable. No other steps are needed for this application.
Connect On App (ArxRobot) On the initial page of the ArxRobot app hit Connect. Do not change any settings on this page.
Connect On App (ArxRobot) On the second page, depending on whether an Uno or ADK is being used the Arduino Connection Protocol must be changed accordingly. If using the ADK choose Microbridge. If using the Uno choose Android as Host Then hit Done

Extra Resources/Information Setting Up the Code For The Arduino ADK: Tutorial Provided by Ryan Fiske (Fall 2013) Arduino Uno requires a USB to USB OTG cable to connect to Android phone. The following link provides more information on: -How to get permission to download the apps (please use google associated with your google play account) -Where to download Arduino code for communication with Phone.
