Topic: Trouble with CMUcam2 + Arduino (Read 861 times) previous topic - next topic

I'm working on a project in which I would like to use the CMUcam2 with my Arduino Duemilanove.  I cannot get it to work, and I'm wondering if someone could help me out - I'm running out of ideas, and I can't find any information on how to set it up!

I hooked up the CMUcam2 and Arduino board to a 9.6V battery. I then connected the TTL serial from the CMUcam to pins 2 and 3 on the Arduino.  Then, I ran this code:

Code: [Select]

#include <NewSoftSerial.h>

NewSoftSerial camera = NewSoftSerial(2,3);

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  camera.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  if(camera.available())
  {
    Serial.println("Ready!");
  } else {
    Serial.println("Not Ready!");
  }
}


This is the output:
ààà àà àþNot Ready!
Not Ready!
Not Ready!
Not Ready!
Not Ready!
...

Any ideas? Thank you!

The CMUcam2 manual says 115200 baud is the default, not 9600

Yes, you're right.  But I have a jumper on the CMUcam board that changes the baud rate to 9600, so that shouldn't be the issue.
