    Getting started with sensors for Edison

    Petko

      Hi all,

       

      I am looking for resources to help me with understanding how to work with sensors attached to the Edison. There is an IoT devkit https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/devkit with documentation and software for working with the sensors, but I will need some assistance on the hardware side. Specific questions are:

       

      Can I use the sensors from the Grove Starter Kit to attach them to the Edison instead of the Arduino board?

      Can I use the sensors from the Grove Starter Kit for Galileo? There seems to be no special version aimed at Edison.

      Do you have any suggestions on where I can buy a sound/accelerometer sensor separately for the Edison? SparkFun appear to have a motion sensor pack but not a microphone.

      Is there any information on how I should align the pins if I am to attach a microphone to the Edison module?

       

      Any pointers are much appreciated.

       

      Best,

      Petko
