Control your LED with Cortana(Lights Demo)

In this tutorial you will end up by controlling and LED connected to Arduino Uno with a UWP Application on Windows 10 using Cortana via Bluetooth Interface.

First of all you will need some tools such as:

  • Arduino Uno
  • Breadboard
  • LED
  • Bluetooth Module
  • Jumpers
  • Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015 installed on your PC

This tutorial is divided into three parts:

  • First one the Hardware ConnectionYou will connect the LED to the Arduino Uno, and connect the Bluetooth Module to the Arduino as well. (as shown in the scheme below)
  • Second step is to write an Arduino Sketch that receives serial messages which turn on/off the LED and then create UWP App which will connect to the Arduino through Bluetooth.
  • Third one is to Activate and Handle Cortana voice commands.

You will find the source code below demonstrating all of these steps.

This is the final result you should get by the end of this tutorial.


And this is a complete tutorial to walk you though.
