Help Learning To Use The New Ez-B Serial Terminal

Sunday, 24 February 2013

Good Morning DJ !

I APPLAUD Your Addition of Serial Terminal to ARC !

Early this morning I connected to my iRobot Create via Com1 and the Creates Serial Cable, and the minute I set the Baud Rate to 57600, I got the Powerup Dialog Screen from the Create !

I was not so fortunate on the Send Side, trying 128 131 followed by 137 0 100 128 0 with No Success ?

Repeating the same steps in both RealTerm, RoombaComm Test, and Create. gives me IMMEDIATE Slow Forward Motion of the Create.

What am I doing Wrong; I tried different Delimiters Like Comma, etc, NO Luck ?

Thank You Again & I Like Serial Terminal On The ARC Screen as part of your Roomba Routine.

I need to learn how to use it ?

did you try the Baud Rate at 9600?
The decimal value of 130 (for example), does not mean the numbers 1, 3 and 0. You will not be able to control the create by typing numbers in.

You can send the decimal values using the drop down and send button. But, there my be a timeout between expected characters on the create.
