I am looking to use the BasicAtom Pro24 as a sub system for a more advanced robot, its basic job will to be taking in input from 4-6 sensors and making motors adjusting of some sort. The other thing I was looking at for this, is communication to the main CPU. I was planning to do this via Serial, but there are problems:
1. The basic stamp has to sit and wait for a communication.
2. While waiting, it does nothing else. This would result in robotic failure
So I was browsing other basic options. and saw the basic atom pro 24m..
it claims to have a buffered serial communication system..
which would basically allow it to recieve serial data while not listening, correct?
Could someone explain what it means by buffered?
