Hi,
Has anyone used C++ to program the AX500?

I am stuck with the serial port configuration.

Thanks.

Hi,

I\'m currently trying to program an AX500 from python. The issues may be different from C++, but I suspect that we might be having the same serial port problems.

In my case, I\'m able to read the \'W\' charactrers being transmitted on watchdog timeout by the ax500. But when I send a query, such as for the voltages, I don\'t get a reasonable answer. When I run roborun on the same port, I do get the right answers, so I know that the hardware is fundamentally ok. I can also read the startup information and firmware version (from Nov last year) from python when the controller is reset (by hand).

If these issues look familiar, please let me know.

I read the c example software from the site, and I got very concerned because the actual transmit stuff was largely in assembly language. Yuck.

However, I\'m generally a fan of the ax500. My testing with the roborun software has gone very well. But now it\'s time to get onto the \'real\' design..

Thanks.
