··I have a Basic Stamp 2pe with the Memsic Accelerometer on a daughter board. I am trying to write code to compare averaged values of the accelerometer readings in ranges. I can not get the code to work because I do not understand how the computer see the values that I am calculating. I only know how to output in such a way to read the accelerometer values in " gs". This makes it difficult to debug the program.·Please note that the ranges I want to set are greater than 0.79 gs, greater than 0.68 gs, and greater than 0.60 gs. I do not have decimals in the program because it does not allow me too. At the end of the program I am trying to display a percentage on an eight segment led also on a daughter board. Please look at the code below and let me know if you have any suggestions. I am also including the debug terminal output. Thank you very much.

kuenyls,

Regarding the program, I had a few questions. Did you want to save the data in EEPROM for furture use? Or compare the values and then write the compared value to EEPROM? Do you mean formatting when you stated the following

I can not get the code to work because I do not understand how the computer see the values that I am calculating.

I am having trouble writing the IF and ELSEIF statements because I do not know how the values physically look in the RAM where the computer stores them. I can not output them to print correctly either. Take for example the count1 output. It should be a whole number. The output of the expercentage is also a character. In order to put the data in ranges I need to compare the values on the same scale. I am running the program under the assumption that I do not need to write the accelerometer data into EEPROM because I am taking a total. I would like to store the expercentage after the value outputs correctly. If my assumption are wrong please let me know. Thank you for your help

Kuenyls,

·The values that·are stored is going to be the same values whether they are in HEX, BIN or DEC formats; so really the format isn't the important part but rather to make sure the correct values are being compared. The BASIC Stamp does only integer numbers, but with some fancy decimal placement it can simulate floating point.

·No you do not have to write the data in EEPROM if you use the data once you take the reading; which I believe you have as yRAW. So once you have yRAW you should be able to convert that to the format you would like to work with and add the IF...THEN statement. For example,

·IF yRAW·= SetVal THEN GOSUB newRoutine·······

·newRoutine:
·· do something here
·RETURN

·However; if you want to take an average of the readings, you will have to save the data somewhere to then be used in a comparing routine. Since you have the BS2pe you have SPR and EEPROM space that you can use for this function. For example, if you have yRAW which is a word; you can put it into EEPROM or SPR with WRITE or PUT commands respectfully. Once they are in there, you can take a sampling of data, write it to the temp space, once the sampling is completed, jump to a routine and pull the data with either READ or GET (depending on the place it is), then do the averaging of those yRAW readings to make an average value. Once you have the average value, you can save it to EEPROM so if power is lost, you can still get those results.

Attached is a small program to illustrate how the different formats could be used together; hope this helps

All data is 1, 4, 8 or 16 bits (bit, nib, byte, word) the only thing that changes is how they are displayed. Try writing code that just reads a value and outputs it to the PC using the debug command then try the formatting codes in the syntax manual to see how the display changes. It will give you a better feel for the data forms.

The raw accelerations were negative a few times, but you added the absolute values. Is that what you want? If so, the accumulation is definitely positive, and there is no reason to include the code later on to deal with negative numbers. The final values seem to be correct,
21328 total as integers
26 count
820 average
The average is 820, which is well above your sort category boundaries of 60,, 68 and 79. What were you expecting?
>>Please note that the ranges I want to set are greater than 0.79 gs, greater than 0.68 gs, and greater than 0.60 gs.
Maybe the boundaries should be 600, 680 and 790?

I don't understand the final "expercentage". Percentage of what?

·After rewriting the program several ways with different scaling of the data I am still unable to make the calculations come out correctly. I am storing the data in EEPROM and the total in SPR. The addition and division are not coming out correctly. Is there a shortage of bit spots even though the variables are words?

Below is the code and output.

Thank you.

There is certainly an overflow error ("a shortage of bit spots") in the step:
ymgTotal1 = ymgTotal1 * 10
Going in, you have umgTotal1=26901. That times 10 overflows the 16 bit word, and what you are left with is the remainder, 6866.

Frankly, I don't see that the program has gained anything at all by using the EEPROM and scratchpad. The original program with a simple accumulator should work fine.

The raw ymG data acquired with the original run was an order of magnitude higher that the data in this run, but you have changed the comparison criteria in the opposite direction. Why?

· Thank you so much for the help so far.·I have been working on the code and come a long way.·I have one last problem that·I do not understand. The expercentage output seems to adding to itself even though·I have initialized it to 0. The values seem to be storing correctly but the calculation does not come out.

Maybe the calculation needs the parentheses rearranged as follows:
expercentage = (3*jpoints1) + (2*rpoints1) + (1*wpoints1)

Only you know the logic behind this program!

By the way you can attach your program, or at least put it in [ code][ /code] brackets to make it more readable.
