We have to start up setting up the Intel Edison. This procedure is very well documented elsewhere so to keep this section brief, I’m just going to quickly summarize and link to the appropriate information.
Image the Edison
The first things you need to do it are assemble your Edison, image it and install and setup the drivers and Arduino IDE. Intel has a great “Getting Started” guide for this that you can find here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/library/edison-getting-started . As you progress through the Getting Started guide, make sure to note of the IP address your Edison is assigned. You’ll need this later. If you need to re-setup the wifi at a later time you can do so with:
Once you have completed the “Getting Started” guide you should load up the “Blink” sketch in the Arduino IDE to make sure everything is working properly.
We’re now ready to start.
