First Arduino project. The application is a timing and scoring system for a electric race track. Arduino will capture all the timing activity and track power on/off events and communicate to and from the PC application software which will serve to display the results etc.
So I’m looking for an Arduino software library that is basically a serial communications handler for the Serial USB interface provided. (I think that’s pins 0 or 1). Comprised of a receive and transmit buffer.
My messages are varying lengths depending on the data that I’m sending. Each message has a 2 byte ID that will tell the firmware and PC software how to parse the message. In some cases I’m sending a long from the millis function plus an identifier that tells the application software on the PC what event the data has captured. In another case the message just contains a state of health or keep alive, if you will, that tells gives a status byte.
Anyone know of a serial handler that I could use or modify to do this? Trying to avoid writing one from scratch.
