Is it possible to send pysense data via physical cable to our PC/raspberry pi?

  • Hello fellows.
    I'm currently working on a project that requires the use of pysense + lopy4. It is the first time i work with them and I'm still looking for information.
    I've already see a lot of projects sending data via WiFi, LOrA and so on. But is there any physical alternative, for instances, via USB to send the data to a computer or a processor like raspberrypi?

    Thank you!

  • @Pedro-Almeida I can replicate this behavior. But there is little that canbe done in the uftpd code, since it does not get noticed. For uftpd, the session continues to exist.

    First of all, thank you for the answer.
    And it should work as well on raspberry pi right? Since rasp is such a PC as well with USB serial inputs.

  • @Pedro-Almeida You can for instance use UART, which is robust and simple. Just 3 wires for a bidirectional link. The speed is not very high, but 1-2 MBit/s should be possible with a short link.
    With the pysense board, you can simply use the USB interface of the Pysense connected to a PC, where it shows up as a serial interface. The default baud rate is 115200. At the LoPy4, you would use print() or sys.stdout.write() for sending and for receiving. That interface can as well be used as UART 0, allowing you to use the UART API.
