Connect the Jetson Nano to the BBC micro:bit in 5 minutes or less

There's huge interest in using the Jetson Nano for Edge AI - the place where Physical Computing meets Artificial Intelligence.

As the last few posts have shown, you can easily train and run Deep Learning models on the Nano. You'll see today that it's just as easy to connect the Nano to the outside world.

In this simple proof-of-concept you'll see how to connect the Nano to a BBC micro:bit and have the Nano respond to an external signal (a press on the micro:bit's button A).

You'll need

  1. a Jetson Nano
  2. a computer with the Mu editor installed
  3. a BBC micro:bit
  4. a USB lead to connect the Jetson to the micro:bit

Here's a video that takes you through the whole process in less than 5 minutes.

I'll be posting more complex examples over the next few days. To make sure you don't miss them, follow @rareblog on twitter.
