If you want to connect some motor shields or sensors to Intel Edison you can do it by an extension board. But you’ll probably have to code a special libs for this. Instead of it you can connect an Arduino board to Intel Edisson and connect them though the UART interface.
The Ubilinux doesn’t have the joydev module. I don’t know why. Correspondingly, we can’t start the xboxdrv program. There are two ways to fix this problem. The first one: you have to download the following kernels-headers for Yocto:
I have been waiting fo a long time a mobile device which is able to receive the data from the Kinect v. 2.0 (XBox One). The device must have a USB 3.0 port. Finally I found the board on Kickstarter. Its name is UP Board.
I told you how to install the OS Ubilinux on the Intel Edison board in the last post. I need this system for using the ROS (Robotic Operation System). I also need some functions which doesn’t included to the standard comm version:
communication between Edison and Arduino Mega through serial port (UART)
receiving frames from USB-camera and transmitting them with OpenCV support
This post about the Ubilinux installation on the Intel Edison board. The Ubilinux allows you to install the ROS and use its power. Before following this tutorial I recommend to extend partition size of board with an SD card: read this. 1. The Ubilinux installation.
Sometimes you need to copy files from desktop (or laptop) to your Intel Edison board. You can use the internal storage of the board. Edison should be powered. Switch should be near j16. When you connect one to Windows or Linux (Ubuntu) machine via usb (j16 or arduino) port, you can see partition (Edison). You can copy files to this disk.
