Based on the Sparkfun tutorial I have tested the connection between Processing and Arduino
When I press the mouse button inside the processing box ,the led on my board will turn on and when I press again it will turn off
Now I will test a simple serial connection with the ldr value of my previous Board B1
In Arduino code the ldr value is checked , if the value is higher than 500 than it will send 1 on the serial if not it will send 0
In Processing software the code reads the value received on the serial and if it is equal to 0 than it will draw a rectangle with black color "fill (0)" if else it will change the color to grey "fill (204)"
After that I have made some adjustments in the code and changed the size of the display from 200x200 to 400x400 and change the rectangle to circle.
After that I have changed the background color and added a text showing the received values
Now I will test another simple serial connection with a Potentiometer connected to my Board B1
Now I will control the Led on Pin13 with the Potentiometer connected to my Board B1
The background color will change with the potentiometer value and the led is controlled by the mouse buttons: left click will turn on the led and the right-click will turn off the led.

Check Berytech page for the Group Assignment
As from my side I tried the MIT APP INVENTOR
I will connect through bluetooth to turn on and off the led light and the fan of my final project
To turn on the led it will send 1 via the appliction and to turn off the led it will send 0
To turn on the fan it will send A via the appliction and to turn off the fan it will send B
After that I will press on build to generate the application.
I will receive a QRCODE to read via my phone to install the application.
And this is the code used for testing
