Since Uno and Mega has no Serial, replace Serial with Console at Bridge Sample IDE code

  SD card datalogger

 This example shows how to log data from three analog sensors
 to an SD card mounted on the Arduino Yún using the Bridge library.

 The circuit:
 * analog sensors on analog pins 0, 1 and 2
 * SD card attached to SD card slot of the Arduino Yún

 Prepare your SD card creating an empty folder in the SD root
 named "arduino". This will ensure that the Yún will create a link
 to the SD to the "/mnt/sd" path.

 You can remove the SD card while the Linux and the
 sketch are running but be careful not to remove it while
 the system is writing to it.

 This example code is in the public domain.

 To see the Console, pick your Yún's name and IP address in the Port menu
 then open the Port Monitor. You can also see it by opening a terminal window
 and typing
 ssh root@ yourYunsName.local 'telnet localhost 6571'
 then pressing enter. When prompted for the password, enter it.


#include <FileIO.h>

void setup() {
  // Initialize the Bridge and the Serial
  while (!Console) {
    ; // wait for Console port to connect.
  //while (!Serial); // wait for Serial port to connect.
  //Serial.println("Filesystem datalogger\n");
  Console.println("Filesystem datalogger\n");

void loop () {
  // make a string that start with a timestamp for assembling the data to log:
  String dataString;
  dataString += getTimeStamp();
  dataString += " = ";

  // read three sensors and append to the string:
  for (int analogPin = 0; analogPin < 3; analogPin++) {
    int sensor = analogRead(analogPin);
    dataString += String(sensor);
    if (analogPin < 2) {
      dataString += ",";  // separate the values with a comma

  // open the file. note that only one file can be open at a time,
  // so you have to close this one before opening another.
  // The FileSystem card is mounted at the following "/mnt/FileSystema1"
  File dataFile ="/mnt/sd/datalog.txt", FILE_APPEND);

  // if the file is available, write to it:
  if (dataFile) {
    // print to the serial port too:
  // if the file isn't open, pop up an error:
  else {
    //Serial.println("error opening datalog.txt");
    Console.println("error opening datalog.txt");



// This function return a string with the time stamp
String getTimeStamp() {
  String result;
  Process time;
  // date is a command line utility to get the date and the time
  // in different formats depending on the additional parameter
  time.addParameter("+%D-%T");  // parameters: D for the complete date mm/dd/yy
  //             T for the time hh:mm:ss;  // run the command

  // read the output of the command
  while (time.available() > 0) {
    char c =;
    if (c != '\n')
      result += c;

  return result;
