Over the last few months I have learned how to program with Python. With one of the upcoming projects that I am working on it would be nice to have a computer’s display to view the data collected by a rover in real-time as well as crunch numbers while the rover completes its mission. The rover will have an Arduino as a brain. What I found after some searching was pySerial
. This is a really neat piece of software that allows Python to send and receive data much like the Serial Monitor does.
pySerial is available to download at
