    General Question about the Edison boards

    CarlosA

      I am looking to get started with Edison. I am a programmer by trade so want to find out a few things:

       

      If I want to control a PWM motor controller, and maybe add a few of the sensors from IoT - Sensors, actuators, and shields to bring your project to life | Intel® Developer Zone do I NEED the Arduino version of the Edison, or can I directly work with sensors from the plain Edison?

       

      Ultimately i`m looking to build a small autonomous robot that sends some information from sensors to a linux server for processing, then receives coordinates of where to go next - which are crunched and fed to the PWM. If I can get away with hooking several sensors up to this, that would be great!

       

      Thanks for any help.
