This application is a showcase for RIOT's hardware support. Using it for your board, you should be able to interactively use any hardware that is supported.

To do this, the application uses the shell and shell_commands modules and all the driver modules each board supports.

shell is a very simple interactive command interpreter that can be used to call functions. Many of RIOT's modules define some generic shell commands. These are included via the shell_commands module.

Additionally, the ps module which provides the ps shell command is included.

Usage

Build, flash and start the application:

export BOARD=your_board
make
make flash
make term

The term make target starts a terminal emulator for your board. It connects to a default port so you can interact with the shell, usually that is /dev/ttyUSB0. If your port is named differently, the PORT=/dev/yourport variable can be used to override this.

Example output

The shell commands come with online help. Call help to see which commands exist and what they do.

Running the help command on an iotlab-m3:

RIOT specific

The ps command is used to analyze the thread's state and memory status.

Networking

The ifconfig command will help you to configure all available network interfaces. On an iolab-m3 it will print something like:

2015-09-16 16:58:37,762 - INFO # ifconfig
2015-09-16 16:58:37,766 - INFO # Iface  4   HWaddr: 9e:72  Channel: 26  NID: 0x23  TX-Power: 0dBm  State: IDLE CSMA Retries: 4

2015-09-16 16:58:37,770 - INFO #            Source address length: 2

Type ifconfig help to get an online help for all available options (e.g. setting the radio channel via ifconfig 4 set chan 12).

The txtsnd command allows you to send a simple string directly over the link layer using unicast or broadcast. The application will also automatically print information about any received packet over the serial. This will look like:
