Thanks for reaching out.
Regarding the ROS query, there are some guides to install ROS on the Edison, please take a look at the following links that you may find useful:
- Successfully Install ROS Indigo on Edison (and not run out of rootfs space)
- Installing ROS Indigo on Intel Edison
I have not installed ROS since it is out of our support scope, however, you can try it and share your results in the community.
Moreover, we would like to let you know that some libraries are written specifically for the Arduino board, and they are based on their MCU architecture and it won’t compile on the Edison because the architecture is different. Some libraries can be edited in order to use with the Edison, but in some cases it is not possible. We would like to suggest you to take a look at the following thread:
- Additional UART port (SoftwareSerial)? There you will an explanation of the serial ports.
Hope this information helps.
