For my project, I am trying to have two separate Edisons read and write data to each other via wireless connection. Is this possible through bluetooth? Wifi?
I would prefer to get this to work through a bluetooth connection.
I'm having difficulty finding any information about this.
Any help would be much appreciated.
If you would like to create a "serial" connection through Bluetooth you should use SPP (however there's an issue with SPP in image 3.0 and 3.5 as you can see in https://communities.intel.com/thread/101689 https://communities.intel.com/thread/101689, you will have to use older images). You can learn more about SPP in section 6.7 of Edison's Bluetooth User Guide: http://www.intel.com/support/edison/sb/CS-035381.htm.
If you would like to create the "serial" connection using Wi-Fi, you will have to use a third party package such as Ncat or socat. You can learn more about them in:
I hope this helps.
What exactly do you mean by "read and write data"? I mean, do you specifically need to use interface that imitates a serial port? If so, I would prefer to use SPP, but it has the imitation I mentioned before.
If you could read the data from a file, you could Wi-Fi Direct as in this guide:
Let me know if this approach helps you.
Defining which one is the easiest would be difficult, however, on a quick search online I found this: https://github.com/eelcocramer/node-bluetooth-serial-port. It is node module that lets you communicate over SPP with devices using Node.js. Maybe it'll be of help for you.
