CShore's Maker Workshops

Using Pi to Control the Arduino

  • We assume the Pi is already booted.

Ensure Arduino software is installed on Pi

  • Assuming one is using the default PIXEL desktop, if ‘Arduino IDE’ is not available under the ‘Electronics’ menu, open a terminal and execute: apt update && apt install arduino.

Plug the Arduino USB connector into the Pi

  • Add pic?

Launch the Arduino software

  • From the ‘Electronics’ menu launch Arduino IDE’


  • Select ‘Serial Port -> TTYAMA0’ (if not already selected)
