Grove Mate - A simply and low cost little tool for you to get the analog or digital value of your Grove sensor in seconds, no PC and coding required, quick and straight.
Testing the sensor is the very first step when we start to build a new arduino interactive project using sensors.
If you are a fans of open source hardware, you may have dozens of sensors in your drawer, and everytime you want to make use of them, you need to test them one by one to make sure whether it is a analog or digital sensor, or it is still in good condition, as well as how the analog value will change for different condition.
The most common way of doing that is to write a program which to read the pin value and “Serial.print” to the serial monitor or display the figure on display equiment such as digital display tube or OLED. Well, it at least cost you a development board, a grove shield, and your valuable time to write that code, oh, and you also need to finish the work with a PC.
In a word, this is a high frequency scene and we don’t even have a simple tool to save time and energy for us. Therefor I made this simple grove sensor tester to fulfill the requirement, which you could get the analog or digital value of your grove sensor in seconds, and no PC and coding required.”
