*** Never mind, looks like there is something in my code that's creating the blockage ***
For my robotics project I would like to be able to have access to the vesc tachometer value. I'm using Rollinggeckos amazingly helpful VescUartControl. As a first step I have my Teensy (arduino like microcontroller) get a bldcMeasure struct from the VESC, then get the .tachometer value from the struct and display that on the little screen I attached (for now).
This works reasonably well, but when i do this every frame or every few frames the update rate is pretty bad. When i look at the realtime Tacho data in the VESC_Tool, it runs lovely and smooth, which makes me thing it is something i'm not doing right. Unless this is a limitation of the UART, in which case I would love to know too.
