Project Description

Currently with just with 8 RPi devices cables occupy most of the space in the 'rack. Reduce the clutter with replacing USB to UART converter with WiFi to UART ones.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Devices are ordered
  • Prepare device programmer
  • Study platform
  • Create clean WiFi to UART bridge implementation

      I have also thought about this problem, but think WiFi and the ESPs may not be very reliable. I have my eye on a new cheap USB to 8 UART chip: http://www.wch-ic.com/products/CH348.html
