Error Correction - how can i do it
August 13, 2010
As part of my "Depron Project", i have made a XBee pro RF transmitter and receiver interface.
(it works very well, however my application will test it to its limits i guess......)
I would like the data to be 100% true. (else my 400gramme areoplane will just be a dot on the horizon - if you know what i mean)
My Question :- I have heard of error correction codes and would like to know what is the best way or method to follow ?.
My system is Arduino based ie Atmega328s.
My data string is so :-
EDIT :- 125,25,255,10,55,1,0 (ie 5 channels values 0-255 , plus two digitals at the end).
now i sent the equivalent character down the line ie. instead of
90,89,88,87,86,1,0 i send just ZYXWV10 (reduction of 18 characters (worst case 23 best case 13) to constant 7 characters)
Thanks in advance.........
