Setting Up a Motion Sensor on Up Xtreme with Ubuntu

Samberlance New Member Posts: 1

Hi there, I was recently sponsored with an Up Xtreme for a project I'm working on, and am still learning how to use it.

I would like to set up a motion sensor to use as a stimulus to run a program when activated. However, as I have no experience with this sort of hardware setup/interfacing/programming, I need some help in figuring out how to accomplish this. Most of the guides online are for Raspberry Pi/Arduino, so it would be helpful if someone could guide me in this matter.

My objectives are:
1. Figure out and get all the necessary and compatible hardware components
2. Set them up properly to interface with the Up computer board
3. Access the input/output from the motion sensor so that I can run a program when the sensor detects motion

As I am completely new to this kind of configuration, any help is useful and appreciated.
