Intel Edison and Sparkfun 9DOF board

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am very new to the Intel Edison. I bought the Edison and the 9DOF board (among others) and just wanted to get it up and running so I can start to experiment but I cant even seem to do that. I am using the Intel XDK development environment and have googled the hell out of it to find a solution. I did find http://www.instructables.com/id/Smart-Helmet-Intel-Edison-Sparkfun-9DOF/?ALLSTEPS THIS one but alas it comes up with multiple errors. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get me started?

Thanks in advance,

Brent

Hi BrentA,

 

 

I've checked the link you posted. That project seems very complex if you are just starting with your Edison. If what you want to do is to start using the SparkFun block, I recommend you to check their guide in the following site: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/sparkfun-blocks-for-intel-edison---9-degrees-of-freedom-block- https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/sparkfun-blocks-for-intel-edison---9-degrees-of-freedom-block-. You will find a full description of the block and an example code too. I'd say that's the best way to get started with your block.

 

 

Regards,

 

Diego

Brent,

To help you debug, give us the following information:

are you using Linux, Mac OS or Windows

which version of the OS are you using

what hardware is the OS running on

what Intel web pages did you use to get started

main error that you are getting
