What?

Program an Arduino Uno to act as a USB keyboard that automatically presses the F1 key every 5 seconds.

I'm using this to automate occasional reboots of a server that shows a BIOS error with "Press F1 to continue" every time it reboots.

Based on http://mitchtech.net/arduino-usb-hid-keyboard/.

Requires reflashing the USB controller on the Arduino with a special firmware (on my Arduino, this is an ATmega16U2 chip). See also the relevant Arduino docs and reflash.sh in this respository.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
