Serial Timeout with Edge Impulse Daemon (re: 6/30 AI Workshop)

I am enrolled in I received the hardware and have tried to go through the pre-work setup stuff, but I am having an issue.

When I try to start the edge-impulse-daemon I get this:

> D:\Electronics> edge-impulse-daemon
> Edge Impulse serial daemon v1.13.8
> Endpoints:
>     Websocket: wss://
>     API:
>     Ingestion:
> [SER] Connecting to COM3
> [SER] Serial is connected, trying to read config...
> [SER] Failed to get info off device Timeout when waiting for >  (timeout: 5000) onConnected

The board shows up under COM and LPT devices in the Windows Device Manager as COM3.

I was able to get to the point of successfully programming the nRF board with Arduino, but I’m having no luck on the Edge Impulse side of things. One problem seems to be that the SparkFun board isn’t listed at

Anything I should try? Thanks!

Hi @blave,

As you pointed out the board is not fully supported. We’ll use the data forwarder during the workshop to acquire data from the board.
