I decided to test my Sharp IR range finders with my Axon mote... Two issues so far in getting set up.
1. Per the documentation, Sparkfun, and Project Designer, I should be supplying Vcc = 4.5 to 5 V. Lower voltage should work though, and indeed, Admin includes this exact setup
in his getting started tutorials for the Mote. I'm guessing I can use 3.3V and the signals will just be proportionally lower voltage... If I used USB power, could I power them off the unregulated rail, instead?
2. I can't generate an Axon Mote project with Sharp IR sensors because I can't tell Project Designer a 5V rail to use. (Webbot's the only one that can help here, really x) )
This is the same problem I was having with Mote + Motor drivers in Project designer a couple of months ago: http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=14465.msg105991#msg105991
Edit: I got around the second problem by modifying the Axon_Mote.brd file in ProjectDesigner.jar and adding it back in as Axon_MoteX.brd
