Raspberry & 6LoWPAN HowTo outdated


does someone plan to update following HowTo:


I have all is needed:

  • OpenLabs Raspberry Pi 802.15.4 radio
  • Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3
  • Atmel SAM R21 Xplained Pro but still fail to do successful ping. Two SAM R21 boards see each other, can ping, setup UDP server etc., but going according HowTo gives no effect. No ping response both from raspberry nor from SAM R21. I managed go through all steps up to examples. Recently I’m using new raspberry kernel which support openlabs radio by default (just need to enable overlays), but still not working.

Maybe there is some other up to date howto/tutorial which enable SAM R21 board and RPI to communicate.

Finally I’m new to RIOT, is this right place to ask that question?



Hi Tomek,

please have a look at these guides [1], they should get you started with the RPi + Openlabs.

In case anything is missing or unclear, please make open issue there.

best,   Sebastian

Hi Sebastian,

  I'm confused. Is the RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/ outdated?

  If yes, it would be beneficial to update the existing wiki instead of creating a new one.

Hi again Tomek,
