BBGW, Sabertooth 2 x 12, UART, Flask, Python, and Linux!




I thought this would be fun. So, for kicks, I made a BBGW (BeagleBone Green Wireless) and a Sabertooth 2 x 12 connection via UART. I added a couple of batteries, e.g. one for the BBGW and one for the physical aspects (motor and Sabertooth).




I also used a Flask microframework from a pip install from Python. I did use pysabertooth along w/ a HTML page.
