I never worked with Arduino before and i don't have much knowledge of how it works and what it all can do but i need it for a project i'm going to do and eager to learn!
I'm gonna describe the project and hope you guys can tell me if it's even possible!
I work at a taxi company and created a system for that we use to track them and do our entire administration of fares on them. This runs on Android Tablets and works fine. Its basically a webview with extra functions.
In most of our taxi's we use a Digitax F1 Plus Taximeter (http://www.digitax.com/products/F1-Plus-Taximeter.html) As it states on the applications page it's able to communicate on the RS232 port at any baud rate from 300 to 115200 using a frame structure N, 8, 1: signal level +/- 12 V, using the protocol COMMTAX 2.
I don't have any information about the COMMTAX 2 protocol yet, i emailed them for more information.
For this project i'm looking for a way to get the data from my Taximeter to the Tablets and into our system. When i started googling on RS232 and Baud Rates i quickly got on the Arduino pages so i guessed this was the way to go.
I'm eager to hear if you guys think this will be even remotely possible!
