I’m trying to figure out how to send data from an Arduino to the current (non V5) Cortex via UART using RobotC. When I google for this, I find methods that apply to the ancient (PIC based) Cortex, and Cortex-to-Cortex, etc. But I haven’t found any recent postings that show exactly how to do this. Anyone happen to have some code they would like to share? Thanks.
Check out this post I found from 2014…
Thanks for the link. However, about the only useful tidbit I could understand from that thread was the (probable) need for a level shifter between the Arduino and Cortex. There seems to be so much else being discussed about the BeagleBone and everything else, I just plain got lost. I was hoping for something a little easier to understand since my knowledge of bit banging is sorely limited. I might be needing something maybe more plug-and-play, and maybe not so lets-reinvent-the-wheel-ish.
It should be the same as cortex to cortex. What arduino were you gonna use? I can take a look at the data sheet.
There was this
that had some links to earlier work. I know @fretless_kb did a bunch of work in this area.
and I found this, but don’t seem to have the cortex side.

Can I have an Arduino communicate directly with a cortex?
Right now I’ve been tinkering with the Arduino Uno. I’m having the Arduino take data (color signature, X, Y position) from a Pixy Cam and I’d like to pass it on for use with the Cortex. I can see the data on the Arduino IDE serial monitor. I just wish I knew how to read that data with the Cortex using RobotC. I’m presuming the UART would be the best way to try that.
probably adapt this for cortex side
I know RobotC does have some UART functions that are available for use.
jpearman! Hey, since I have your attention. I noticed that the Super User setting on RobotC has some kind of configuration for the CMUCAM. Any chance that can be used directly with the CMUCAM 5 (=Pixy Cam) in existence now?
Justin wrote some handy RobotC code to work with the Pixy. You can find it in the BNS code release from Starstruck. https://github.com/JMarple/BNS_2017/blob/master/Striker2/pixy.c
This is mind-blowingly impressive! I’ll need to study it, though. At first glance, it’s way over my head. Like, waaaay over.
