Hi,

I like using the Arduino.cs for interfacing to the LattePanda's Arduino Firmata using C#. Is there an equivalent code in Python (e.g. Arduino.py) for LattePanda?

Regards,
Nemanya

Hi Nemanya, welcome to the forum! Bad news that there is no such arduino.py for LattePanda, but it sounds really good, I will talk with our team to discuss whether we can work on it after we finish the Alpah.
Do you know the Alpha? It is our new LattePanda Alpha with better performance than LattePanda, if you are interest in it, you can check the link below to get more info!

Btw, may I ask what kind of project are you working with LattePanda? :)
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

Hi! It would be really great if you can make arduino.py file for LattePanda. I am aware of Latte Panda Alpha and am very excited to see it finished!

I am using LattePanda to building a robotic lawn mower for my orchard (2,500 trees) and prefer to work in Python as there are many great libraries available. Broadly speaking, I want to use GPS for general positioning and navigation, cellular network for internet access, and google maps API for mapping.

So, it would be of great help if there was a LattePanda arduino.py file.

Cheers,
Nemanya

I'm not professional at programming. Just talked with our software team about the topic. I think we will figure out how to support. At the same time, considering the LattePanda communication between CPU and Arduino is based on Firmata protocol, I think you can consider to test python firmata libraries to see if it works for you! Like this one:

Look forward to your update!

Our software engineer tested it before. It works.
