More external hardware with the Arduino and the BeagleBone

A session at iOS Sensors and External Hardware Masterclass

Monday 8th October, 2012

3:15pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

In this session we'll continue on with more hardware hacking, and exploring how to control the Arudunio board from your iOS device. But we'll also look at other ways to talk to external hardware.

Both iTunes and XCode talk to your iPhone using a TCP socket connection over USB and using the PeerTalk library and a Linux implementation of Apple's USB multiplex daemon (usbmuxd) it's possible to talk to other remote hardware over Apple's standard USB dock connector. So in this session we'll demonstrate exactly that, and show how to get your iPhone talking to a BeagleBone or a Raspberry Pi board.
