How to make the Intel Edison running the arduino program just turn on the power supply?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I am using the Intel Edison with Arduino.

I already boot the program from the SD card follow the steps from AlexT_Intel.

Now I wish to make my Intel Edison run the arduino program after I plug on the power supply.

At this stage, I have tried after uploaded my program and then plug off the connect of J16 the program will not work.

P/S: I have connected the 5V power supply to the Intel Edison board.

Seem like my arduino program not yet store inside the SD card.

Hope you all can point me out.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hello chewcheik,

The Arduino sketch should start running after power up the board. The issue might be caused by the image version you have. There is a known issue with the latest image. It doesn't start the Arduino sketch after restarting the board. There is a workaround for this issue described here: . I recommend you to check it.

Regards,

Diego.

Hi DiegoV_Intel,

Thank you really helpful.

May I ask you how to copy the file from the PuTTY?

I not yet flash the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloads/eula/24910/Intel-Edison-Software-Release-2-1?httpDown=htt... 146 (ww18-15) version but I just want to try how to copy the file and paste the file back into.

I have tried to use WinSCP but sadly I cannot login with this software.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hello chewcheik,

To use WinSCP and access the Edison you should configure the Wi-Fi interface first. Run the command configure_edison --setup to configure the Edison and set the Wi-Fi interface. You have to check there is an IP address assigned to your Edison and a password as well.

Other option would be to copy the files in the SD card with the cp command, then re-flash the Edison and copy the files form the SD card to the new image.

Regards,

Diego.

Hi DiegoV_Intel,

The previous image also cannot let the Intel Edison standalone?

I have flashed the previous image https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloads/eula/24910/Intel-Edison-Software-Release-2-1?httpDown=htt... 146 (ww18-15) but after I plug off the J16 cable it also cannot function.

I am using the Ubuntu to flash the image so I can copy out the file from /opt/edison but after mount the file become readable only.

So until now I cannot replace the latest image /opt/edison file with the old image file.

I am not familiar to ubuntu can u point me up?

Thank you so much and have a nice day.

Thank you so much DiegoV_Intel.

My Intel Edison can stand alone already.

I am using chmod 777 file_name to change the permision therefore my file can be replaced.

Hello chewcheik,

I haven't tried this workaround but you shouldn't have problems copying the files. According to the guide shared by the other user ( ), if you have problems copying the files you should kill the process that has the same name as the file by using kill -9. Additionally, other user posted that you have to set the execution rights of the files once you have copied them.

Regards,

Diego.
