How can I communicate with intel galileo by using HC-05 bluetooth module from my computer?

Jump to solution

Hello everyone!

 

I have a problem and I will be so grateful if you could find a solution to my problem. I have an Intel Galileo and I tried to communicate with Intel Galileo via HC-05 bluetooth module from my computer but it didnt work. SoftwareSerial library is not supported for this device so I've decided to connect HC-05 module's rx and tx pins to Galileo's tx and rx pins for to use UART which enables the communication between Arduino IDE's serial monitor and Intel Galileo. Sadly, I failed.

I want to learn how to communicate with Intel Galileo via HC-05 from PC and if this is possible with this Bluetooth module or not.

 

I would be extremely grateful if could find a solution to my problem.

 

Thank you very much.

Hi pelinongel,

There are some threads in the community related to the Bluetooth HC-05.

  1. You can use the SoftwareSerial library from: https://github.com/MakersTeam/Galileo/tree/master/Arduino-Examples/SoftwareSerial Galileo/Arduino-Examples/SoftwareSerial
  2. http://download.intel.com/support/Galileo-Edison_ShieldTestReport_330937-002.pdf Shields Test Report There are some examples that may help you with this, take a look at pages 46 and 49
  3. There is an example for the Arduino IDE using the UART.
  4. You can also use the UART, pins 0 and 1 from Linux side, but you must set all the muxes to make this work. In this link you will see the configuration for Galileo Gen2. If you are using Galileo Gen1 take a look at this link: http://www.malinov.com/Home/sergey-s-blog/intelgalileo-configuringtheserialportinlinux Intel Galileo - Configuring the Serial Port in Linux

Try with these options and let us know if you get improvements.

Regards,

Charlie
