Arduino on Jetson TK1 – Simple serial port reader for Ubuntu with C++

In this post, we will show how to develop a simple serial port reader for Ubuntu using C++; it is the first step if you want to enable a device (your Arduino project, for example) communicating via software with a Jetson TK1 board. As a demo project, we will use the simple test of photo resistor functionalities from Arduino Playground. Ubuntu, as any other Linux distribution, provides access to serial ports as device files; in order to access the Arduino serial port, you have to find the corre...
