Hey hey, I’m back with more questions!
Alright, I have three gadgeteers (each with its own screen, hence why I can’t do it with just one mainboard), each has a rotary encoder which allows for scrolling of content on the screen its connected to. However, I need each mainboard to also know how many steps each of the other two rotary encoders have made, so I need to make them communicate between each other.
I’m fairly used to speaking serial between Ardunios, but I’ve never done that with more than two boards speaking with each other. Is it even possible to do with gadgeteer? I’d want to avoid the hassle (and cost) of setting up bluetooth modules and such, or for them to connect to a common point outside my build, as I don’t want it to be dependent on having internet access.
I’m thinking there must be a way of simply hooking up two gadgeteers, with their sockets (just disconnect whichever connections I don’t need) and connecting the TX and RX pins on each socket, or am I barking up the wrong tree here? What would I do programmatically to make that work though?
So, any ideas how I would go by this? I would greatly appreciate any help
