I've recently been working on data acquisition from an arduino by the
serial channel and the Instrument Control  package.
It was not so easy: it seemed that some data were missed from time to
time, but I've never understood why. I now perform some error checking and
sometimes I lower the baud rate. I finally have something that works quite
good (it is a kind of obstacle-checking sonar for a future small robot).
I can send you some example code, if you wish.
