    Sending Serial commands to Arduino via Edison

    ProgrammingN00b

      Hey all,

       

      My current stack is an Intel Edison, a sparkfun baseblock, and a sparkfun Arduino block (SparkFun Block for Intel® Edison - Arduino - DEV-13036 - SparkFun Electronics ). The code I have uploaded to the Arduino requires a serial input (1-9600) which results in a stepper motor activating and rotating at the set speed. I want to be able to run a python script on the Edison which asks what input to enter, have the command sent to the Arduino, and the stepper motor to function accordingly. I have MRAA functioning on the Edison, I just don't know how to send the commands. Any help would be appreciated. I'm pretty new to this so the more detail the better.

       

      Thank you!
