[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Here is a small piece of code I threw together with help from the original source from Linksprite allowing me to interface with the Colour UART Camera from an Arduino board, over SoftwareSerial.
The reason I went for software serial is that this particular Arduino is to be used as a single node in a larger “internet-of-things” and the hardware serial port is required for communication over the XBee module that will be attached, to other nodes in the network.
Firstly, I’ll start with a diagram of the hardware. In this case I’m using a 3.3V Arduino Pro Mini. The voltage is critical, because the camera will need to run at 5V to be reliable. Fortunately, the Arduino is capable of regulating the voltage to it’s required level if it’s connected up right!
