Can anyone help me in attempting to connect a arduino to a beagleboard?
Currently I'm attempting to use serial communication, and python code to receive the bits. I have the arduino transmitting a string in form of a tuple. I can use the function
eval(serialRead) to convert the characters to a tuple. the problem with serial communication is that at times, not all the characters are received, so the print out becomes something like
(1,,1,128) instead of the form (1,0,1,128)
the first 3 numbers are bits connected to switches that enables a loop in my python program.
the last bit of numbers is a potentiometer readout that controls an integer of 0-255.
Any missing bits causes an error the the python script. Anyone know if I should use something like spi or i2c communication to communication from arduino to the beagleboard? And is there a guide to do this process?
