HuskyLens Arduino Tutorial
Hey guys welcome back. In the previous post, I showed you everything you need to know about HuskyLens, what is a HuskyLens, what a HuskyLens can do on its own and how to upgrade the firmware of HuskyLens. Check out the link below to know more about Huskylens.
In this post, I am going to show you how you can connect HuskyLens with Arduino and read data from it. Now let’s get started.

Things Needed to Connect Arduino – Huskylens
Arduino HuskyLens Setup Video Tutorial
Steps to get data from Arduino to HuskyLens
Step 1 – Download Arduide IDE
First thing to do is download and install the latest version of Arduino IDE from this page.
Once it is done we can now download and set up the HuskyLens library.
Step 2 – Download Arduino library for HuskyLens
To do that, first click on this link and go to this website from where you can download the Arduino library for Huskylens.
This is the HuskyLens Arduino Master, which is the library which we will be using to connect HuskyLens with audino. Now you can go ahead and download HuskyLens Arduino Master.
Step 3 – Installing the Library
Once the download is completed, right click and extract. Once the file is extracted you will see all these files. The folder HuskyLens contains Arduino Huskylens library files.
You can install it in multiple ways. An easy way to do is right-click and copy this folder and paste it in the Arduino library folder.
Step 4 – Connections
The connections are very simple, all you have to do is connect 5 volt to 5 volt ground to ground TX to pin 10 and RX to pin 11.
Step 5 – Testing
Now, you can start Arduino IDE. In the IDE,
Go to Files > Example > Huskylens and select “Get Started”.
This library will do all the hard work for you, this library makes use of a ‘software serial’ library which will add an extra serial port to your board.
Now select the right boat and Port and click on compile, Once it is compiled you can go ahead and click on upload. Now start the serial monitor.
You can set various modes in HuskyLens, such as a line tracking object tracking face detection and save various outputs that are being displayed on the serial monitor.
So now you know what do you do with it when you recognize a color or an object. So let’s check that out. In the next video, I am going to show you how you interface this board with Arduino to make cool robots and other projects and do some fun stuffs! Stay tune guys!
