RS232, Pleo Interface and Java

So just for references, issuing commands through a serial interface can be very handy at times. Rather than pushing the code to a repository I’ll just paste it in here. This code runs on mac but any bash equipped system would probably do.


public class main {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	 * @param args
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		System.out.println("Issuing serial command...");
		String gulle; String rfid; String data; String command; String tag1;
		gulle = "/dev/ttyACM0";
		rfid = "/dev/ttyUSB0";
		tag1 = "358AF2";
		command = "sound play test_ok";
		    BufferedReader inFil = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(rfid));
	            BufferedWriter outFil = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(gulle));
			data = inFil.readLine();
			System.out.println(data.substring(0, 6));			
			if((data.substring(0, 6)).equals(tag1)){
				ProcessBuilder pb = new ProcessBuilder("bash", 
"-c", "echo "sound play test_ok" > /dev/ttyACM0"); final Process p = pb.start(); Thread.sleep(1000); p.destroy(); } } } catch(Exception e){System.out.println(e);} } }
