Meanwhile in Australia where the only internet access I have is wireless broadband I can never get Raspbian from the same link to download either. Not sure what is going on but it coughs and splutters and stops. If by chance it does download then it fails to install due to some checksum error. What ...

Re: Getting Python script to respond to Arduino

Here is my basic code that prints out the encoder positions in a terminal window.

Code: Select all

import serial


ser = serial.Serial('/dev/ttyACM0', 115200)         # enable the serial port


while True:
	read_serial = ser.readline()
	print read_serial

Getting Python script to respond to Arduino

Hi I have an Arduino Uno connected to a Rasperry Pi via a USB cable and as I turn a rotary encoder on the Arduino the position of the encoder ( 0 to 79) is being sent to the Raspberry Pi.

Behind the image a series of pictures is displayed that move around and change. Maybe you could draw a transp...

Frustrating

I have a Pi 3 running the latest version of Jessie but why can't I see the SD card copying utility under menu and accessories? The answer is because you have to download piclone. Why does Raspberry Pi org not tell you this? All you read is that the latest version has this utility but nowhere does it...
