Error display of data packet recieved by coordinator xbee

Hey guys, sorry for my bad english.

I working a project with arduino, inclinometer, and xbee pro s2b. I use Xbee shield to plug the end device xbee to my arduino, so i can make it communicate wirelessly with my coordinator xbee that connected to my laptop.
I've made the arduino code to measure the inclination with my inclinometer and it's work :D.
In my program, i make the arduino to read data every 8 seconds, and send it to my coordinator xbee as a data packet.

i use cool term win to display the data packet that recieved by my coordinator xbee.
But the problem is the data that recieved by my coordinator xbee is like this

~.P..".@)"!
SAH%M -10.42
Y Axis: 0.24

Temperatur = 4.00 Celcius

P~.P..".@)"!
SAis: -10.42
Y Axis: 0.31

Temperatur = 4.00 Celcius

v~.M..".@)"!
SAZ.j
r"
Y Axis: 0.17

Temperatur = 4.00 Celcius

3

but i actually want to make it like when i use the terminal to display the data before it sent to my coordinator, just like this

X Axis: -10.42
Y Axis: 0.42

Temperatur = 4.00 Celcius

X Axis: -10.45
Y Axis: 0.35

Temperatur = 4.00 Celcius

i guest that when is use the terminal for my coordinator xbee, it also display the start delimiter, length packet, 64-bit address of my end device xbee, frame type and etc, so the data has become a mess. I try to find a way to make the data is become like what i want, but still not figure it out.

so it will be great for any help or guidance to solve this problem.
thanks :smiley:

I use Xbee shield

One of the half dozen XBee shields available, some of which are junk, but I’m not going to tell you which one.

to plug the end device xbee

That I have configured somehow, but I’m not going to tell you how.

I’ve made the arduino code

But I’m not going to share it with you, even though it doesn’t do exactly what I want and all my questions are about why not.

There might be some hints above. Or not.

Hi Paul,

i use xbee shield from seeedstudio.

But I'm not going to share it with you, even though it doesn't do exactly what I want and all my questions are about why not.

sorry i didn't get it

That link doesn't work.

sorry i didn't get it

I'll make it really simple, then. POST YOUR CODE!

Hi paul.

That link doesn’t work.

can you recommend me the shield that work

Oh sorry, this is the code

}

i set the my end device xbee become end device AT, and my coordinator xbee become coordinator API.

The one you have might work. Find the manufacturer's site (not an ebay ad where you bought it) and post a link, using the link icon.

word readCommand(byte Command) {

The readCommand() function returns a type that I always have to go look up, to see what the hell it is. It SHOULD return a standard type, like int, long, byte, uint8_t, etc. What I do know is that word is NOT a float.

  float xAxisData = readCommand(RDAX);

So, storing the value in a float doesn't make sense.

  float xAxisData1 = asin(-(xAxisData - 1024)/1638)*(180/3.14);

In general, arithmetic involving floats should involve ONLY floats. xAxisData is, but shouldn't be, a float. Since it should be an integral type, you should cast it to a float.

All the integral constants should be floats (1024 -> 1024.0).

There are VERY few times when Serial.flush() should be used. The only one that really makes sense is making sure that all the serial data has been sent BEFORE going to sleep.

You are not doing that, so the serial data gets sent when the Arduino wakes up, all groggy and disoriented. Use Serial.flush() before going to sleep, to be sure that when the Arduino wakes up is has no serial data to send.

When tracking serial data sending/receiving issues, it is far better to stay awake and alert until you KNOW that the data is sent and received correctly. Only when you know that the data is sent and received correctly should you consider napping. If napping introduces problems, you have an idea where to look for a solution.

Trying to debug code that can hardly stay awake is more challenging.
