pfod™ (Protocol For Operations Discovery)
Control Arduino and other microprocessor devices from your AndriodTM mobile via Bluetooth.
NO Android Programming required.
Try out this free demo version on your mobile to see how example screens are displayed before downloading pfodApp.
Unleash the power of your Arduino or other micro project with pfodApp. Show people that you are not just playing with circuits but building useful devices, like a garage door remotes, dimmable room lighting, etc, that they can control from their Android mobile. This one pfodApp can control multiple devices each with different functions.
see www.pfod.com.au for examples of how to convert your existing projects to android control.
See the YouTube at www.pfod.com.au/KnightRider_pfodApp/index.html for an example of how pfodApp is being used to control Knight Rider Lights with an extensive set of options that required NO Android programming at all.
Using the pfodApp on an Andriod mobile, your users can read text prompts, send navigation commands, traverse menu
hierarchies, choose from single and multi-selection lists, input numbers and text and view data sent by your micro.
The contents of each screen shot here is completely controlled by the microprocessor the app is connected to.
The Protocol For Operation Discovery (pfod) is simple request/response protocol for use with micro-controllers.
Think HTML replacement, but with a much simpler format and much shorter messages designed for ease of coding in a micro processor. The pfodApp functions as micro-browser and the pfodDevice is the micro-server.
The pfodApp does all of the Android stuff for you and remembers the menu hierarchy. You only need to code your micro to be a pfodDevice which responds to simple requests over Bluetooth and sends back simple micro-pages in response.
The text and user choices displayed by on the Android mobile by the pfodApp are completely controlled by what you code in your micro. No Android coding is required. The pfodApp handles it all.
