Can any1 help me and provide Visual basic source code for controlling a robot wirelessly through the parallel port of the computer...i am using RF module(434Mhz)....ive connected the transmitter to the parallel port of the PC and the receiver to the microcontroller.......but i need an application to send 4 bit data to the parallel port to control the various operations of the robot like motion and the camera....
Also if some one could give some tips on programming the microcontroller for the receiver.i am using atmel atmega16.

hi,
Unzip this file, its for working with PC's parallel port.
If you are using Win XP you need to copy the *.dll's into the Windows/System folder.
If you have VB loaded, the runtime files will be on the HDrive, if not download the free VB runtime files from the web.

Do you follow OK.?

Designing an 8-bit data logger

Hi
Am a 3 yr student under taking a Bacholar degree in Telecommunication Engineering at Kyambogo university Uganda.

Am undertaking a project to design an 8bit data logger to monitor voltage , store data and display a distance.

I intend to use the following componets
1) ac voltage source 240v
2)stepdown transformer240/5v
3)smothening circuit
4)stabiliser 5v dc
5)ADC0804
6)PC
7)RS23
8)Modem
9)copper wires
10)PC

Am on initial stage of gathering information.
P'se advice me on this project and provide circuit diagram for this project.
Regards
Jesca

thanks ericgibbs, I've been looking for an example like this to get me started.

and Muska, I'd help you, but you need to be a bit more specific with your questions, even if someone gave you a diagram i doubt they could make one that fit your needs and availible components with so little to go on.

Hi Triode
My project is to moniter performance of 240v supply from the national supply and display it at the distance say 50M.I want to analyse how often do supplied voltage vary from the set 240v
