I have two programs- one uses com1 to communicate with a cmucam, the other uses com3 to communicate with an ssc32 servo board. Each program operates perfectly independently, but when I add them together into one program, the whole thing locks up.....any ideas? Thanks!

I like to thank who ever posted the mixer program. After tweeking it for my needs it has been working great on the small servo robot. With some more time I will be adding some fail safe code and a switch to invert the controls for the battle bot when its flipped over. Then place it into the battle bot. I will post an update when i finish.

Hello, I'm having troubles trying to connect a BasicX with a SSC-32 board. I'm configuring SSC-32 to 9600 bauds, and connecting RX to pin 9 of BasicX. I'm using next code, extracted from the code I've found in several messages. I can see the green led of the SSC-32 flashing one time, what means that it's receiving something. But servo does not move at all. Can someone take a quick look a...

Thanks in advance for your advice... I'm totally stumped. I would like to read two PWM sources with the BX and output a combined signal, somewhat like making my own servo mixer. The end result will be a downward-looking stabilized camera mount (already working) that an onboard computer can send an "offset angle." The stabilization offers a level-reference that allows the offset angle to p...

Background? I have written a main program that is intended to read GPS text as a task (140 task stack) and run an xbotx. For my bot I am using code that came from Netmedia xbotx. The servo driver module calls a public task within the sub "ServoTask" (25 task stack). This task is dimensioned as private within the module. Current problem?
