This is a quick Instructable, to show how simple it is to hook up peripherals
Step 1: Gather Parts
You will need an Intel Edison with the Arduino breakout board , a servo motor, and a potentiometer. I'm using the Seeedstudio iot Grove Starter Kit.
Step 2: Download Software
Download the Intel version of the Arduino software, from the Intel website. Along with the drivers (for windows users), one is on the Intel website. The last driver is the FTDI driver. Go to FTDI.com and download the vcp driver.
Step 3: Write and Load the Sketch
Load the knob sketch, don't worry if you see orange error looking code as long as it ends with Transfer complete.
