Bluetooth wireless communication is becoming more and more common recently. In response to this trend, Cytron Technologies has came up with a new Bluetooth module called BlueBee, which provides hobbyists a wireless remote control on their microcontroller circuits thus robots through serial port communication service attached with BlueBee. In the section, a simple project will be constructed to illustrate how to use BlueBee for wireless communication to interface another Cytron product, breadboard friendly Arduino, BBFuino to control LEDs.
BBFuino is a clone of Arduino which is specially designed to fit onto breadboard for prototyping and learning purposes. Like Arduino, it can be used to develop interactive objects like taking inputs from switches or sensors, controlling a variety of light motors and other physical outputs. BBFuino is using Atmel microcontroller Atmega328 loaded with Optiboot bootloader. This feature makes it compatible to Arduino IDE and sample codes provided by Arduino.
Recently, the Arduino main boards with Atmel microcontrollers have its popularity increases due to its easier programming techniques as provided with many useful libraries in which various sub-functions can be called easily. In the next section, we are going to interfacing SC08A and SC16A using one of the most popular Arduino mainboard, Arduino Duemilanove
