I’m having several issues connecting to and uploading to my UP2 via create.
First off, while new to Create, I’ve been using the Arduino IDE and Arduino boards successfully for several years. I’ve found Create to work fine when interfacing with Arduino boards, but using it to connect to UP2 has lead to a number of headaches.
Background: the target system is an UP2 running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, specifically the version bundled with the Grove IoT package (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/up-squared-grove-dev-kit) that is available through Digikey and Mouser. I’ve also invested time looking at documentation, browsing online for posts on the issue, and Arduino forums to search for clues to address the problem, but no love.
issue 1) I’ve had SOME success (see issue 2) connecting, uploading and running code on the UP through the IoT cloud option. Also, I can connect to the UP directly via a com port, as is the usual way for Arduino boards. When connected this way uploading has never worked for me. Usually it starts and never finishes without error or warning messages. For the first time yesterday I noticed that after several minutes the connection to the UP dropped, see attachment. Using the MS task manager, I determined that the Arduino Create Bridge is running.
issue 2) The option to connect to the UP2 via the cloud is frequently not an option in the board selection drop down menu. I’ve yet to notice a pattern as to what influences this situation.
Any constructive offers of insights on what is going on, or suggestions on fixes will be appreciated.
