Programming the Pi Using Arduino Sketches
Massimo Banzi, the co-founder of the Arduino Project, last week announced that if you know how to write programs to control hardware using Arduino boards you can now use the same language to control hardware attached to the Pi.
Thanks to a new feature in the cloud-based Arduino Create service is possible to compile Arduino Sketches – a simplified version of the C++ programming language with a lot of pre-built code for common tasks – into a form that can be run on a Raspberry Pi.
This Arduino Create’s new feature makes possible to interact with sensors, motors, electronic boards and other hardware attached to the Pi’s GPIO pins.
“The idea is that it’s going to make it very easy for people to use devices like Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone and a bunch of Intel-based, single-board computers. It will become very easy to use and to program at the edge,” said Banzi.
In fact, as with the Raspberry Pi, is possible to compile Arduino Sketches for other single boards like the BeagleBone and some intel-based boards.
“Once a board had been added to Arduino Create, the service can be used to manage these boards remotely via a control panel, allowing the user to carry out tasks such as triggering Arduino programs, installing software packages and configuring Wi-Fi networks.”
