Compiling Arduino sketchs on Galileo/Edison from command line

For some time I’ve been playing around the idea of compiling and executing Arduino sketches right from the Galileo and Edison. In this post I’ll detail out the method that I used to accomplish this task and will also note down the investigation that I had to do in order to do this.

TwitterPlotBot on Galileo/Edison

As you might have guessed from the title of this post, we are going to build yet another Twitter bot on Galileo. So what does it do differently then? It tweets the picture of the plot of the temperature(or any other parameter that you wish to see) right to your Twitter feed.

Speaking assistant

Writing this post to share a project that I did for one of the Intel IoT roadshows. It is called “Speaking Assistant” I have put together an Instructable for it. The project is based on Intel Galileo Gen2. It uses Text to speech software(TTS), eSpeak to speak out information that it fetches from the Internet and yes it is entirely written in Python 😉

Python on Intel Galileo/Edison – Part 5:Temperature sensor with mraa and upm

The temperature sensor that we are gong to use for this post is from Grove. This sensor outputs the voltage that represents the temperature hence we will need the ADC module on the Intel Galileo/Edison to interface with this peripheral.

Python on Intel Galileo/Edison – Part 4: ADC

ADC is a peripheral that lets you input an analog signal and gives the digital representation of that analog signal.
The world in which we live in is surrounded by the analog signals. The temperature, sound that hear, the light that we see are all analog signals. If you want to interact or measure these signal in a digital system like Galileo/Edison, you’ll have to use ADC a.k.a Analog to Digital Converter.
