6 Pin Bluetooth RF Transceiver Module HC-05 RS232?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've seen many threads on using bluetooth provided by Intel Centrino Mini PCI E, but I've not seen as many on using something cheaper as the 6 Pin Bluetooth RF Transceiver Module HC-05 RS232:

(or the 4 pin one). On those using this (or similar one) breakouts I did not figure out the project in which they are used. Do you know any project (or production system) using Intel Galileo and the 6 Pin Bluetooth RF Transceiver Module HC-05 RS232 (or similar one)?

TIA,

Fernando.

Summary:

a) Many threads on how to use/fix problems/bugs:

b) The HC-05 officially documented by Intel is a shield-mounted one, described at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005913.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005913.html, and no one project described in the document, because that's not what the document is intended for.

c) No report found (so far) of a complete project (even a simple one) using these modules

d) Many projects/reports of these modules used in the Arduino context. It is not clear if those can be replicated in an "as is" base or if they have to be adapted to Intel Galileo.

HTH,

Fernando.

Replying to myself just to show what I've found on HC-05:

Most (if not all) of them are about having problems and possible fixes.

One of them refers to simple examples, but using Arduino, not Intel Galileo.

Hi,

 

 

Yes, those are good examples of threads related to the HC-05. Additionally, there are some shields based on the HC-05, that even though don't come in the 6 pin package, can also be useful as examples of the sensor functionality. You can find it here http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005913.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005913.html

Hi Sergio,

Thank you, I've seen that report because it is mentioned in one of the threads above. Two details

a) It explains how to use a specific Arduino shield: SeeedStudio* Bluetooth* Shield v1.1 (pp. 46-50) and I don't figure out how to use the information for the modules I have. If you know how, please let me know.

b) It does not describe projects, of course, just how the shield could be used with Intel Galileo

You're right, in the shield test report there aren't descriptions of full projects of this sensor with the Galileo. I looked for full projects with the Galileo and this sensor but was unable to find anything useful that wasn't already in the links to threads you posted above. I did found however, projects with this sensor and Arduino. You can look at these projects and get some ideas to implement on the Galileo.

 

 

Look at these guides, just to name a few:-Sergio
