Tutorial - Laser Tape Measure Hacking |
While this might be a bit late, I’ve been working on getting this laser: http://www.boschtools.com/Products/Tools/Pages/boschproductdetail.aspx?pid=DLR130K#specs interfaced with one of my robots. Having similar difficulties finding and making sense of any serial transmissions on the board, we opted to read the data from the LCD breakout. Currently we’ve found a special clock line on the LCD (–--, running at 650Hz) that appears to be used to sync the signals that correspond to the digits on the screen for reading data along with the specialized codes for each decimal digit on the screen. Definitely not the most elegant solution, but after we whip something together with a microcontroller it should be pretty easy to interface with and use for collecting data.
No public wish lists :(
