The BeagleBones have 4 capable UARTs and the goal of this project is to provide the end user an image to configure, access and control the UART devices using a user friendly interface or SSH directly into the BBB to take control of the UART device.

===Description===
 
 
There are two key points to approach this project. First, SSH into the BBB to control the UART devices. Second, create a deployable image to easily configure the UART devices. To enable the BBB to take control of UART devices and to issue commands to it using a serial connection:
 
# Use of simple system management daemons such as Systemd can be used which is the first daemon process to execute on BBB.
 
# Obtain a full list of services running (systemctl list-units -t service |grep tty)
 
# Get the status of the current serial service (systemctl status <running service>)
 
# Replace the serial service with a custom application service by disabling the current serial service (sudo systemctl stop <service>) and then disable it from boot
 
# Deploy your own design serial service.

===Experience and approach===
 
 
# Prior knowledge of embedded systems, soldering, device drivers, C and have worked with BBB, RaspberryPi and ESPs.
 
# I run my open source website to teach basic electronics and device drivers at : http://saumitra.co/
 
# Before the start of the project, I have well equipped myself with the necessary tools and skills to start off.
 
 
===Contingency===
 
 
# Talk to people on IRC and beagleboard community
 
# For serial and UART configuration I will follow : http://www.iitk.ac.in/LDP/HOWTO/Serial-HOWTO-16.html for troubleshooting
 
# Follow the online resources : https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Serial_Programming
 
# Google it
 
# Read documentation page
 
 
===Benefit===
 
 
===Suggestions===
 
 
Yes. I'm interested in developing the hardware for the project too since I'm passionate about electronics and would love to work on the same.
