If you have ever tried to use an Xbox controller with the Raspberry Pi, you will find very quickly that they do not work correctly right out of the box. In fact to get them working you will be required to install a special driver.

With the newer Xbox One controllers that feature the Bluetooth functionality, you will also find that they will need extra work on top of the driver installation to get them to run. Namely, they are not properly supported by some of the Bluetooth functionality that is switched on by default.

This guide will show you how to get your Xbox Controllers up and running on the Raspberry Pi, while also walking you through how to get the newer Bluetooth enabled controllers to pair successfully on the Pi.

In this project we show that a small C program running on the EV3, brickhid, can handle Bluetooth communications with a PlayStation 3 controller and translate stick positions and button codes into motor commands.

Using a Connection via a Serial Port is a low-level way to send data between the Raspberry (Banana) Pi and another computer system. There are two main ways in which it can be used:
  • Connecting to a PC to allow access to the Linux console. This can help to fix problems during boot, or to log in to the Pi if the video and network are not available.
  • serial interface. This can be useful if you want the Pi to control another device.
