I am not doing so well with this yet. I have a PTP
And all I want to do is read velocity from a smart motor rs232 output.
The smart motor db9 is connected into a max32.
I have the gnd and 5v of out of the max232 coming into the board with the Q44 Propeller Parallax chip on it
going to V5 and Gnd. I also have the TX going to P4 and Rx Going to P5 on this board because my usb from my computer
is inserted into the board, so that takes care of my onboard tx rx going directly to the Q44 chip.
I have tried different UART commands. And this is my code for now which all it does is display the velocity text but I want to
know what is coming out of the tx of my db9, and read it back to the display for velocity.
Here is the code so far. Maybe over kill but a co-worker gave me quite a bit of code to start with which included
Xbee functions and numchuck info which I took out. I only want to read the velocity value coming out of of the db9 Tx port.
I just do not know what to do next. Any help steering me in the right direction would be helpful.
