This module provides drivers for General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) devices (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Purpose_Input/Output). It must be used along with an adaptor module such as cylon-firmata (https://github.com/hybridgroup/cylon-firmata) that supports the needed interfaces for GPIO devices.
Want to use Ruby on robots? Check out our sister project Artoo (http://artoo.io)
Want to use the Go programming language to power your robots? Check out our sister project Gobot (http://gobot.io).
Install the module with:
npm install cylon cylon-gpio
Note you must also install whichever adaptor you want to use, such as:
npm install cylon-firmata
var Cylon = ;// Initialize the robotCylonstart;
Cylon.js has a extensible system for connecting to hardware devices. The following 14 GPIO devices are currently supported:
- Analog Sensor
- Continuous Servo
- Direct Pin
- IR Range Sensor
- Makey Button (high-resistance button like the MakeyMakey)
- Maxbotix Ultrasonic Range Finder
- RGB LED
- Temperature Sensor
- TP401 Gas Sensor
More drivers are coming soon...
We're busy adding documentation to our web site at http://cylonjs.com/ please check there as we continue to work on Cylon.js
