2- Program


Now that your device has been configured, you can now program your device. If you have already tried to program your device you will note that you couldn’t do so until the device had been configured. If you are unsure how to configure your device, click the Configuration tutorial from the menu on the right.

At this point, you may already have an idea of the kind of project you are going to create. If so and you are ready to program you device, proceed to the following instructions and we will show you how to get started programming.

To program your device, you may once again right-click on the board. Select “Program” from the popup menu and a new window will appear. See Figure 1.

We have designed Proviz as a user-friendly software and have simplified the programming process of all these diverse and complex platforms to bring you one consolidated way to program all of your IoT devices. All devices will be programmed using the same language called the Panther Language that our software engineers have designed for ease and convenience. For tutorials on how to use the Panther Language, click on the “Panther Language” tab at the top of the page.

Let me show you how to navigate this window so that you truly begin creating cool projects.
Before you can begin programming, you must add sensors to your device. To add a device, go to the very top of the window and click the “Add Sensor” button.


Adding Sensors

Our friend, Asci, is now going to walk you through the process of adding sensors. A new window will open that will feature a picture of Asci on the left and a menu on the right.

An example of this new window is provided in Figure 2

You will see a dropdown menu with a list of sensors on the right. Navigate through the list and select your desired sensor. If you do not see the sensor listed, this means that Proviz has not yet incorporated support for this specific sensor and you may need to check back soon.

Now, click “Next” and you will be taken to a page in which you will assign a pin to your sensor. If you are unsure what this means, you may want to brush up on these terms. In our Panther Language tutorials we feature in-depth descriptions of these terms. Feel free to google them yourself for more detailed descriptions, as well.

An example of this page is displayed in Figure 3.

When you have assigned your pin and click the “Next” button, you will see a page with the choices you have just made. At this point you can go back and change them or hit “Finish”.

On the “Visual” tab featured in the “Program” window, a menu on the right will now appear that contains details about the sensors on the board that you have just programmed and details about the board itself.

To add another sensor, you can repeat these steps once more.
