Hi Patrick,

I'm not sure about Java but I've used PySerial with Overo.


Not the best python code but it gets the job done. If you look at the TurtleCore schematic you'll see that the DB25 connects to UART1 of the Overo. I believe this translates to /dev/ttyO0.


My coworker Tyler put together an example (Python) that might help.

Hi everyone,

I am working on integrating the Turtlecore and an Overo, but I am not using ROS. I was wondering if it is possible to directly use the Tx and Rx on the DB25 header as a /dev/tty serial device in Linux on the Overo. I have Debian on my Overo Fire storm right now.

I would like to grab a hold of the serial port from a Java application directly, so that I can send messages using the Create serial protocol.
