Infra red Arts Instalation

Recommended Posts

I follow your forum for a while now. I’m starting digital artist working on IR project at the moment. I was hoping you could advice me a bit as you are expert for Beagle Bone. 
I have design music application in Unity 3D. It reacts to 24 different keyboard inputs. Now I was hoping to be able to control it remotely. 
I was trying to make I arts installation that would use remote controllers sending signals to receivers connected to different GPIOS on the Beagle Bone.

Receiver would get binary IR signal and send it to Beagle Bone GPIO.  Beagle Bone would change it to key input and send it to main Computer as key input.  

I’m really confused where to start. I have basic understanding in Java, C Sharp or Java Script but I’m hitting the wall here with programming it. 
I’m using:
- high sensitivity recivers:
- beagle bone 
- Linux Ubuntu

I was also planning to use 8 chanel GPIO adaptor if Beagle bone would be to difficult(http://numato.com/8-channel-usb-gpio-module

But I just don’t know how to get binary to the string so I can make computer to react.

I will highly appreciate your advice
Best Stan

Have you tried looking at bone script. Comes with the beagle bone. I'd suggest you start small by toggling a few I/Os first and then graduate to complex control.


I do not understand your question though. You can sample the input lines and send these to a PC serially. You will have to generate your own communication protocol. What does the PC do?
