Post Mindsensors Distance sensor not working
Hello,

I've got this Mindsensors Long Distance IR sensor:
http://www.mindsensors.com/index.php?mo ... PAGE_id=73

It works OK using the Mindstorms NXT software, but in robot C, its like its not connected. I'm using the demo program from mindsensors.

Polling the brick, and going through the various I2C modes gives no reaction.

Have I missed something?

Robot C version: 1.46, Oct 16 2008

Perhaps you should try the driver and demo program from the driver suite. You can download it here: http://rdpartyrobotcdr.sourceforge.net/

It has a driver + demo program for the DIST-nx.

Regards,
Xander

No, that is not what you are using. The driver and demo program I linked are made by me, not Mindsensors. Check the link above again and see for yourself.

Regards,
Xander
