In this video, Zahraa explains the use of the serial monitor in Arduino IDE. Serial monitor is a feature that can come in handy when troubleshooting code running on your Arduino or for communication between the Arduino board and the computer or other devices.
- [Instructor] The Serial Monitor is a special…feature in Arduino IDE that can come in handy…when troubleshooting the code,…or for communication between Arduino Board…and the computer, or other devices.…So the Serial Monitor, when you click on it here,…it produces a separate window dialog box…which displays any output text…from the Arduino and allows you…to enter text as well.…You must write the code in your program…to send and receive data using…the Arduino Serial port.…
Now in order to activate the Serial Monitor,…there are three ways.…You can go to tools, and click on Serial Monitor.…Or you can press on ctrl+shift+M…key combination on the keyboard.…And then the final way, you can just click…on this magnifying glass, and then this will…give you the Serial Monitor.…All Arduino boards have at least one Serial port.…For Arduino Uno, it communicates on digital pins…zero and one.…
And therefore, these pins cannot be used…for a digital input or output…if you're using Serial communication.…You can check more about the function…
