Wireless program uploding to A-Star 32U4 Mini LV


#1

Hi,
I use the A-Star 32U4 Mini LV to control a line follower car.
Each time that I want to upload a new program using the Arduino IDE, I need to bring the car and connect it to a USB cable.
Is there a simple way to program the a-start wirelessly ?
If possible, is the solution small and light - I want to keep as small as possible.

Thanks

Hello.

We do not have any solutions for wirelessly programming the A-Star 32U4. Our ATmega32U4-based products not come with a serial bootloader, which is necessary to upload programs wirelessly. You could try putting a serial bootloader on the A-Star and using a wireless serial link to upload sketches to it, but it will be complicated to make it work. You can see how we implement that sort of system on the Wixel Shield for Arduino.
