Arduino Serial Monitor

How to get a Serial Monitor Print Out.


1. Conenct the Arduino Board to the laptop via USB cable



2. Open the Ardunio IDE and select the correct board type and port.  Then open the serial monitor.  You may need to change the BUAD rate (commuincation speed) .  This is normally 115200 or 9600 for most codes used on the mower.



3. The Arduino code is written to print messages to the serial port about the status of the mower.  This text can be copied and shared.  The serial monitor only records the messages being sent in that moment.  To collect  messages about the robot while its moving you will need to follow the robot around with the usb connected and collect the messages sent as it moves.
