I can not communicate with Axon.
« on: September 20, 2009, 01:00:51 AM »
   I am sure this is a hardware problem "Loose Nuby behind the keyboard!"
   I have my Axon and the AVIRSP mkII main unit. When I hook  the mkII into the Axon and the computer into it with power to the Axon as well the I can see two green LEDs in the mkII. This is with or without the AVR software running. I have been through the software instructions three times (I have downloaded and reloaded it that many times).
   What I think is happening is that your product has so many options and can do so much that you share those with me in the instruction and i get lost in the detail and screw it up. I have gone to brand "P" and built a kit since the last time you saw me so I am a bit smarter then the three $50 Robot microcontrolls i built that did not work.
   Now to my real question, Can someone please layout a direct route to a Axon bot that will run, two continuous servos for drive, one servo with a mounted Ping and provisions for the ping?
   I know the Axon is overkill for this however it could be the start of a nice ERP.

Hmmmm so where did you get stuck? I'm guessing lost in the instructions? :P

Do this, in order as baby-steps, so it isn't overwhelming:
plug in your Axon to everything and power it up (I think you did this correctly already)
compile and upload code to the Axon (any code is fine, just for practice)
get a servo to move
get data to output to Hyperterminal
get Ping to output data to Hyperterminal (see below)
now rotate the servo depending on Ping data (like a photovore)

Search the forum for Ping and Axon:
