Howdy,

Can't seem to find anything on Arduino / Girder interfacing here or anywhere in the forum searches. Both written in C and connected serially, you'd think this hardware interface would be a practical choice for relays and sensors.

Am I missing something ?

- Thanks !

Arduino is great fun, I have one here at the office in fact. Though I haven't gotten much chance to play with it.

All you would need to do is load a program on the Arduino that listens on it's serial port for special command and set the appropriate outputs. The Girder side of it is pretty easy using the transport classes.
