Python reading serial port UART1
Greetings from Sunny South Africa! :)
I have a nano spitting out sensor data to my onion via UART1 every 10 seconds or so. I can read the data perfectly using cat and screen but struggling to find a way to do this with python (which i have very little experience with).
My needs are simple: read sensor data when UART1 has about 30 bytes of data, then write sensor data to a remote mysql server. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
Thanks in Advance! :)
Take a look at PySerial as described under "Using Python". Good luck with your project.
Thank you @Ken-Conrad ! I found a really good example of how to use PySerial on instructables that was written for Pi and it worked out well after i changed UART details. Now just to get mysql installed and we good to go! :)
