hyperterminal to controll robot
« on: June 07, 2010, 10:47:31 PM »
Hi: I have the 50 $ robot with the uart working, I connected the robot to the computer to be able to see the values
of the sensor, everything works fine.. Now I want to be able to controll a set of leds from hyperterminal, do I have to change something on the initializations or the same thing that works for sending data works for receiving?
Basically the code uses the port d as output.
DDRD = 0xFF;  //configure all D ports for output. If I am going to be receiving data on the RX input.. do I need to change
that pin to input or that does not matter when you use uartGetByte()????

Nope, no need to change the port inits. Rx is always an input and Tx is always an output.
