hi guys, we're new here.
we're trying to connect our Arduino Nano (ATmega 328) with our Pololu Mini Maestro 24 channels through the rx/tx pins.
we've found some people over the internet that succeeded to do this kind of connection but we can't manage to make it work
we've connected the arduino USB to our computer
both arduino and maestro GND pins to the GND of our supplier
maestro VSRV to 5v from the supplier
maestro VSRV to the maestro VIN pin
arduino tx to maestro rx, arduino rx to maestro tx
(attached is a picture of the wiring)
we've used the following codes with rx pin - 0 and tx pin - 1(on arduino Nano) - http://www.darrenfeetham.com/18ssc.html(last
one)http://www.quantumphysguy.com/2013/07/0 ... o-maestro/
and we get this error everytime - avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
we've checked the COM port and that the BOARD setting in the compiler is correct
we've also tried to use the example code from the Arduino site regarding the SoftwareSerial library - http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SoftwareSerial
and it didn't work :(
afterwards we've disconnected to Maestro and tried again, and Voila! working.
so, does anybody know what might be the problem?
