  1. We finally got this tracked car running. The tension still needs to be adjusted. Here is the video: Next step is to mount the hardware and start programming.
  2. I have the MSP-EXP430G2 board and it works fine with energia. I used the instructions I found at "I use the latest version of Energia, i.e Energia 18. If you follow this step exactly it will work as usual." 1, copy <energia directory>\hardware\tools\DSLite\DebugServer\drivers\MSP430.dll to <energia directory>\hardware\tools\msp430\bin\ 2. edit <energia directory>\hardware\energia\msp430\boards.txt an change the 2 occurrences of rf2500 with tilib 3. restart energia and you should be able to upload to the MSP-EXP430G2 with MSP430G2553. Your boards.txt file from step 2 should look exactly like this after you save it: # See: menu.cpu=Processor ############################################################## MSP-EXP430F5529LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430F5529LP.upload.tool=dslite MSP-EXP430F5529LP.upload.protocol=dslite MSP-EXP430F5529LP.upload.maximum_size=131072 MSP-EXP430F5529LP.upload.maximum_data_size=8192 #MSP-EXP430FR4133 MSP-EXP430FR4133LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430FR4133LP.upload.tool=dslite MSP-EXP430FR4133LP.upload.protocol=dslite MSP-EXP430FR4133LP.upload.maximum_size=15360 MSP-EXP430FR4133LP.upload.maximum_data_size=2048 #MSP-EXP430FR5969 MSP-EXP430FR5969LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430FR5969LP.upload.tool=dslite MSP-EXP430FR5969LP.upload.protocol=dslite MSP-EXP430FR5969LP.upload.maximum_size=65536 MSP-EXP430FR5969LP.upload.maximum_data_size=2048 #MSP-EXP430FR5969 MSP-EXP430FR6989LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430FR6989LP.upload.tool=dslite MSP-EXP430FR6989LP.upload.protocol=dslite MSP-EXP430FR6989LP.upload.maximum_size=130048 MSP-EXP430FR6989LP.upload.maximum_data_size=2048 #MSP-EXP430G2553 MSP-EXP430G2553LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.tool=mspdebug MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.protocol=tilib MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.maximum_size=16384 MSP-EXP430G2553LP.upload.maximum_data_size=512 #MSP-EXP430FR5739 MSP-EXP430FR5739LP.vid.0=0x2341 MSP-EXP430FR5739LP.upload.tool=mspdebug MSP-EXP430FR5739LP.upload.protocol=tilib MSP-EXP430FR5739LP.upload.maximum_size=16384 MSP-EXP430FR5739LP.upload.maximum_data_size=512 T
  3. I have a windows 10 laptop. It works fine. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
  4. I modified your code to blink the red led and to print some stuff out on the serial monitor. I hope this helps. /* Blink without Delay Turns on and off a light emitting diode(LED) connected to a digital pin, without using the delay() function. This means that other code can run at the same time without being interrupted by the LED code. In MSP430 Launchpad, there is already an LED on the board that's attached to pin 14, so no hardware is needed for this example. created 2005 by David A. Mellis modified 8 Feb 2010 by Paul Stoffregen modified 27 Apr 2012 by Robert Wessels */ // Pin 14 has an LED connected on MSP430 boards, has a name 'GREEN_LED' in the code. // constants won't change. Used here to // set pin numbers: const int ledPin = 78; // the number of the LED pin // Variables will change: int ledState = LOW; // ledState used to set the LED long previousMillis = 0; // will store last time LED was updated // the follow variables is a long because the time, measured in miliseconds, will quickly become a bigger // number than can be stored in an int. long interval = 1000; // interval at which to blink (milliseconds) void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); //initializes the serial monitor // set the digital pin as output: pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT); } void loop() { // here is where you'd put code that needs to be running all the time. // check to see if it's time to blink the LED; that is, if the // difference between the current time and last time you blinked // the LED is bigger than the interval at which you want to // blink the LED. unsigned long currentMillis = millis(); if(currentMillis - previousMillis > interval) { // save the last time you blinked the LED previousMillis = currentMillis; Serial.print("CurrentMillis = "); Serial.println(currentMillis); // if the LED is off turn it on and vice-versa: if (ledState == LOW){ ledState = HIGH; Serial.println("LED is on"); } else ledState = LOW; Serial.println("LED is off"); // set the LED with the ledState of the variable: digitalWrite(ledPin, ledState); } }
  5. I just verified this code working on my msp432 using the following code: /* Blink The basic Energia example. Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly. Change the LED define to blink other LEDs. Hardware Required: * LaunchPad with an LED This example code is in the public domain. */ // most launchpads have a red LED const int led = 78; //see pins_energia.h for more LED definitions //#define LED GREEN_LED // the setup routine runs once when you press reset: void setup() { // initialize the digital pin as an output. pinMode(led, OUTPUT); } // the loop routine runs over and over again forever: void loop() { digitalWrite(led, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level) delay(1000); // wait for a second digitalWrite(led, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW delay(1000); // wait for a second }
  6. Have you tried using the pin number instead of P1_0? LED1 is pin number 78 according to the pinout sheet. Here is a link to the MSP432 pinout: I think it would be helpful if you posted your code.
  7. Thanks for your resonse. I really appreciate it.
  8. I just realized why your code is not working. The project you are trying to replicate from is using an outdated version of the blynk library. Replace: " #include <BlynkSimpleTI_CC3200_LaunchXL.h>" With: " #include <BlynkSimpleEnergiaWiFi.h>" in your code and it should work. I hope this helps.
  9. I downloaded the blynk library from the blynk website at: I also followed the install instructions provided by blynk. All you have to do is select the add .zip library in energia. Then select the blynk zip file from your computer. After that, the library should be installed and blynk should work. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
  10. Have you resolved this issue? I am currently doing a project using the cc3200 and blynk. I might be able to help. Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
  11. We are using wheels off roller blades. They spin fine when pushed but do not move freely. I think we might have to put smaller PVC piping in between to cover the gaps. We are not sure yet because we are waiting on some parts to get it moving. I will definitely be posting more information and pictures later as the project continues.
  12. Hello Everyone, I am still a student and am currently taking a technical writing class. I am supposed to interview someone who currently works in the field I am going to school for. The problem is that I don not know any engineers. Is there an engineer who is willing participate in this assignment? You would have to provide Your contact information, some samples of your writing, a picture of yourself and or office, and answer some of the following questions. How many engineering positions have you had? Do you enjoy writing? What tasks do you do that involve writing in your job position? Do you use the writing formats/styles that you learned in school? How often do you encounter a disorganized email and/or document? Does reading an unformatted/disorganized document take time away from other job tasks? Have you ever had to second guess what a person meant when you read their writing? Did you ever have to ask a person what they meant? Do you proofread your writing? Have writing styles changed in the engineering field since you have started? The information can be sent here or through a PM. This would really help me for my assignment and future career. Thank you and I appreciate any help I receive. Best Regards, Abelardo
  13. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my current project. I am building a robotic car using the blynk app. I will also be adding a robotic arm, video camera, Hotspot, solar panel, temp sensor and more. I am building this with a classmate for my senior project. I will post more details later as the project progresses.

  15. Hello Everyone, I am planning on building an IoT robotic snow plow using a CC3200 Launchpad. Does anyone have suggestions on what camera module to use with the CC3200?
