How These Instructions Help You
These instructions will guide you through the steps to create and install a custom Wind River® Linux 7 OS image that includes the software and libraries necessary to interface a Phidgets* temperature sensor with your Intel® IoT Gateway using Python. Then, it will show how to attach the temperature sensor and run an example Python application that pulls temperature data from the temperature sensor and stores it locally on the Gateway.
Sensor Hardware You Need to Provide
You need the following components:
- Phidgets Precision Temperature Sensor. Part #1124_0:
- Phidgets Interface Kit 8/8/8. Part # 1018_2:
- Your Gateway hardware must be set up. See https://software.intel.com/en-us/SetupGateway-hardware
- Your Wind River® development environment must be installed and configured on your Development Computer. See https://software.intel.com/en-us/Setup-IDP-DevelopmentTools
