newbie here, working with an art collective to use bio-monitoring tools to create sound.
We just bought a grovepi+ and some grove sensors :
finger-clip heart rate with shell
3-axis digital gyro
as well as some “non grove” bare flex and pressure sensors
Now we would like to interface them with pure data (http://puredata.info/) which for those who wouldn’t know is a nice realtime visual programming language widely used for instance in the field of improvised music.
Pure data is cross platform and can be installed on the R-pi.
I think that bringing the possibility to simply access the grove sensors data in pd could also be useful for the communities.
There are a few working options to interface pd and arduino, like pduino or arduino2pd.
Do anyone know if I could safely flash the grovepi+ firmware using one of these options and what would be the way to process ?
Or would it be better to write a specific pd external (they are written in c) using the c library provided by dexter industries (this option would obviously exceed my limited technical skills) as described in the following document ?
thank you for your attention
