Hi all. I have been working on a fingerprint based project using adafruit's fingerprint scanner from here http://www.adafruit.com/products/751 . I have been successfully using this with Arduino uno with the help of the following library provided by adafruit itself, from here: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Fingerprint-Sensor-Library Now, i have to switch from Arduino to Msp430g2553 LP. Can you'll please guide me with the following? : 1) How to port This library to Energia? I know the basic part is to replace Arduino.h and associated code with #include <energia.h>, but is there anything else i need to do? 2) How do work with SoftwareSerial in this case? I've read we cannot use baud rate above 9600 with g2553, is it true? Is there anyone who has worked on a similar project? Any help will be truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
So I'm working on a fingerprint scanner project with this repo written for arduino for the scanner I'm using. I am trying to make it work with an MSP430G2553 instead of the Arduino Uno. When I try using this library in Energia, it can't find the scanner despite being wired on the launchpad the same way that it is wired on the Arduino (External 5V source, Arduino pin 2 --> MSP430 pin 1.1, Arduino pin 3 --> MSP430 pin 1.2). The code compiles and the serial monitor outputs the test looking for the scanner, but it has yet to be able to find it. If anyone could give me any help with this, it would be greatly appreciated. Energia ino sketch is attached. EDIT: So after making myself more familiar with the code and the C++ imports, it seems the scanner works in 4 phases: 1) Take image 2) If image is a finger, convert it to digital features 3) Compare fingerprint features against features of enrolled fingerprints 4) Able to return result for the comparison and if its a match, return the ID# These lines: SoftwareSerial mySerial(5, 6); //Define serial communication on two pins Adafruit_Fingerprint finger = Adafruit_fingerprint(&mySerial); Seem to be whats handling all the fingerprint logic. So the issue isn't with the scanner, its with the communication between scanner and the MSP, most likely that I'm somehow defining output pins 5 and 6 (P1_3 and P1_4) incorrectly so they are not handling the scanner at all. fingerprint.ino
I am making an IOT based attendance system using AdafruitFingerprint sensor and CC3200 . My Fingerprint sensor library works better and using 12 and 23 serial ports for Tx and Rx but I am getting problem with my Softwareserial.h library file. I am not sure if it a bug or my mistake could anyone help me solve this issue or suggest me another way to finish this project ? I have uploaded the Library file which I was using from github.com Thank you, Raja.SoftwareSerial.cppSoftwareSerial.h
