Running more than one app to run at the same time on Intel Edison

Jump to solution

I had read somewhere that you can run more than one app at the same time on Intel Edison Board. For example, I want to have an arduino program running to take sensor inputs, control motor, etc. and depending on some conditions arduino program will then send data to node.js app to run and send webcam data to dropbox. I think this is possible but don't have to do it. This will be helpful in many cases since arduino has a lot of libraries for sensors and actuatora and node.js is too helpful for tcp, socket, webcam, sending mail, etc.

I will be very thankful if someone helps.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Alpha007,

I recommend you to check the following guide: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2015/05/05/efficient-data-sharing-using-interrupts-on-intel-e... IoT - Data sharing between programming environments on Intel® Edison | Intel® Developer Zone. This guide is about data sharing between environments and there is an example with an Arduino sketch and a NodeJS script. I think that you will find it useful.

Regards,

Diego
