Arduino shield help


i have a “Raspberry Pi Meet Arduino Shield” from dfrobot

they demo an LED project with this thing just snapped onto a pi 3 in python. i am trying the same setup for my project, but it will not install the cayenne library

any help would be greatly appreciated


What’s the error you are getting?


i am trying to adopt it and it shows the arduino shield, but it doesn’t show it connecting, and i get arduino ide errors. i have even tried commenting out #include <ESP8266_SoftSer.h> but it shows a different wifi error after i do

here’s my steps:

serial connection

Arduino ide:
board: "Arduino Leonardo"
port: "dev/tty/ACM0

Arduino: 1.8.5 (Linux), Board: “Arduino Leonardo”

Can you post the code you are using when you get this error?


I am copying the sketch from the cayenne site


There’s a lot of example code out there, can you post the specif one you are using?


this is what i get after trying to upload the cayenne library with the
leonardo, serial port, and ACM0. the board is directly plugged into the
gpio on the pi 3, so i was assuming it would use the pi’s internet
connection because it does on the dfrobot page. there is even an LED demo
for this arduino board on a few sites. here is the board itself:

when i try to upload the library, i get this (attachment 1)

to see if i could make any progress, i run this in the arduino IDE. i don’t
get an error here, it just never connects to cayenne.

should this board possibly have it’s own wifi? or the RTC built in be

#include <CayenneSerial.h>
// Cayenne authentication token. This should be obtained from the
Cayenne Dashboard.char token[] = “xxxxxxxxxxx”;
void setup(){
//Baud rate can be specified by calling Cayenne.begin(token, 9600);
void loop(){;}
