Day 20 – Baud Rate

Ryan took the robot home to work on it over the public holiday. He spent the day working with Oarkit’s script for controlling the servos. He put hours of hard work into finding out the dilemma of why neither our code nor Oarkit’s worked on our robot. He finally figured out that it was the baud rate of which the servos would “talk”. We had at it at 9600 whereas the servos were configured at 57600. He put together all the pieces of code for both the Raspberry Pi and the Open CM board and got it working with the Oarkit’s script. After that minor setback, he re-wrote it to fit the team’s needs.
