code to use a TFT screen with arduino (will do a separated post one day soon

github stuff

  • unbox
  • wire
  • follow adafruit’s tutorial
  • enjoy!

To log data you can use picocom

picocom -b 9600 /dev/ttyACM0 > serial.txt
(C-a C-x to quit)





Adafruit’s ultimate GPS logger

Today I tested Adafruit’s ultimate GPS logger.
As usual, it was well documented on Adafruit’s site.

I took the first example from the tutorial and this was what I got:

And here are the pictures from the soldering:

send SMS with arduino GSM shield



  • sendSMS example sketch from arduino
  • picocom [1]
  • SIM card from a French local provider
  • The serial monitor from the Arduino IDE can be used, too.

    to quit picocom C-a C-x !!

    [1] Don’t have what I type echoed, which is frustrating

     picocom --omap crlf --emap crcrlf,delbs --baud 9600 /dev/ttyACM0 

    installing inotool on the Raspberry Pi

    For the basic install and configuration example, see my previous post inotool for busy people

    When installing on a R-pi, few tools will not be installed by default on Raspbian, proceed to install all of them *before* attempting to clone the git repository.

    apt-get install python-configobj python-setuptools git python-jinja2 python-serial


    inotool for busy people that uses Debian


    check that you already have

     apt-get install python-configobj python-jinja2 minicom 

    , you’ll need them.

    clone ino from github:

    mkdir -p ~/arduino/code/repository
    cd ~/arduino/code/repository
    git clone git://github.com/amperka/ino.git

    cd ino
    (sudo or su)
    make install

    Sometimes ino does not like the version string provided, cat the file /usr/share/arduino/lib/version.txt , it should look something like 1:1.0.5+dfsg2-1
    , backup the file and leave just 1.0.5
    You should be ready to start.

    Follow this tutorial now:
    ino quickstart

    sample of my ~/.inorc:

    board-model = diecimila

    board-model = diecimila
    serial-port = /dev/ttyUSB0

    serial-port = /dev/ttyUSB0
