I just got the Emic text to speech and I was trying to use the command SendSerial to communicate with it but with not luck. Can somebody help to figure this out?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
Here is an example of EZ-Script for the EMIC 1 speech module.. I'm unsure of the difference between the EMIC 2 and EMIC 1, but the Documentation you posted should tell you how to use it
the ez-controller resets itself, I have also tried 2 EZ-controllers as well as different power supplies.
Same thing is happening with my LCD now too since the last update.
Also, how are you powering the EMIC? I see it takes 5v, but if you are powering it directly off the EZ-B then any EMIC issues or longer power drains feeding a speaker may be causing a brownout on the EZ-B.
Of course, this is just a guess based on the little info listed here.
SendSerial(d0, 9600, "sHello World")
SendSerial(d0, 9600, "sD1", 9600)
anything with quotes with the exception of the letter s is what is supposed to be spoken(s means say the following)
The specs on the EMic2 which is what I am now testing with
Power requirements: +5 VDC, 30 mA idle, 46-220 mA active
I also tried a separate power supply with the same results, even though the drain shouldn't even phase the EZ-B, even re-checked wiring, grounds, and there's nothing else hooked up to the EZ-B with this testing.
The same issue happens with a serial LCD.
I can only send short phrases to my LCD, then it get's all garbly and
then the EZ-B resets and I have to re-connect.
Spent hours trying to figure out what I was going wrong.
Hopefully this gets fixed soon. I'm shining my DJ spotlight into the sky
Using a Parallax serial LCD, same problem, more than one word and the EZ-B locks up.
Even the LCD like I mentioned before has the same issue, i'm sure it's a simple bug that DJ will have a fix for in notime, but for now I had to resort to another MCU for the time being...
