How are you syncronizing the transmit and receive so the tx does not start until the rx is ready? As I see the code the tx just sends and the rx just receives so how do you know the complete byte was received?
Mounting the SRF10 You may have notice that there are no mounting holes on the SRF10 module! That was deliberate to keep the module as small as possible. So how do you mount it? Here are three suggestions: 1. A straight or right angle 0.1 inch connector soldered to your PCB. 2. Using two 9.5mm rubber grommets. Two holes should be drilled into the panel you're mounting the SRF10 to. The hole centers should be 0.7inches (17.78mm) apart and the holes drilled 0.5 inches (12.7mm) in diameter. The two grommets should then be fitted to the panel and the SRF10 gently pushed into them. 3. Using our SRF10 Mounting Kit, shown below.
After getting my Arduino and comming here I heard someone mention Processing then Wiring. I've been to the sites and registered for the bulletin boards (forums). My question is, obviously these are related somehow but what is the relation? The IDE is similar, JAVA is a common factor but what else and can you use one to write for the others (at least code snippets) Thanks for any clarification you can offer.
It sounds like it can be done. First you need to find out what the tach needs for an input, what levels, speed and form. Then you can have the arduino output that to the tach. After you get that working then start on the control.
