The official Arduino development team has today revealed at the Embedded Linux Conference 2018 expansion of a number of architectures supported by its Arduino Create platform for the development of Internet of Things applications. The latest release allows Arduino Create users can manage and program a wide range of popular Linux single-board computers such as the awesome Raspberry Pi which has today received a new addition to its range in the form of the Raspberry Pi 3+, AAEON UP² and BeagleBone as if they were regular Arduino development boards.
Massimo Banzi, Arduino CTO explains, “with this release, Arduino extends its reach into edge computing, enabling anybody with Arduino programming experience to manage and develop complex multi-architecture IoT applications on gateways. This is an important step forward in democratising access to the professional Internet of Things.
Multiple Arduino programs can run simultaneously on a Linux-based board and interact and communicate with each other, using the features and enhancements of the new Arduino Connector. Enabling Internet of Things (IoT) devices to be managed and updated remotely “independently from when they are located” says Arduino.
