Lesson 3

Introduction to MOOC
Lesson 3: Working with UART and the RMS on the Raspberry Pi

In lesson 3 you will learn how to access peripheral devices that use Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) protocol. You will learn to:

* Configure the Raspberry Pi to allow access to the UART chip
* Read NMEA sentences (messages) from the Adafruit GPS device
* Parse comma-separated strings using Java ME Embedded
* Store data read from the GPS device into the Record Management Store (RMS)
* Use File I/O on the Raspberry Pi as an alternative persistence mechanism
* Use the Raspberry Pi to automatically load and start the AMS and Midlets

Hardware for this lesson is described in the homework.
