Do any of the Seeed demos actually work?

Post by johne » Tue Jul 11, 2017 9:30 pm

So I know that Seeed is not exactly known for quality and/or support but after fighting the flaky networking on the Green wireless I am now trying to run some simple demos with the IOT sensor package.

The led python code ( turns the LED on but never off. It just stays on forever until a reboot.

The encode python code ( dies with a run time error:
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 182, in __init__
this = _pyupm_adxl345.new_Adxl345(bus)
RuntimeError: UPM Runtime Error: Adxl345: i2c.write() control register failed

Do any of these tutorials actually work or am I just wasting my time?

If I could get that Motor Bridge Cape to work, like other people who have tried and succeeded, you can make some items work. What kernel are you using, e.g. 4.9.x and what image?


P.S. In Stretch for our Debian Distro, you could use config-pin Px.xx uart to set up uart functionality. config-pin can be found around the realm of the BBB and variants. Oh and sir, try the for the current, most-rated images available for the BBB and variants (BBG and BBGW).
