i am currently doin a project listed in the cornell final year project site, the project is a foot accleration sensor and the url is below

http://courses.cit.cornell.edu/ee476/FinalProjects/s2009/vlc6_ljs62/vlc6_ljs62/vlc6_ljs62/index.html

currently ive done exactly as instructed in the website but still i am gettin the following error when i try to receive data through matlab from the serial port

check on a terminal software if you're getting data frames correctly. looks like you are missing data during wireless transmission. i suggest you to try to check data on serial terminal and see if you are getting right amount of bytes with terminator.

communication part includes some handshaking too.. do check that in the project documentation.

well.. got tht fixed.. tho now.. the wireless sometimes connect.. and sometimes dont.. meaning .. when i press to plot data.. the data is blank.. but once in a while when i press plot.. the data begins to plot~!.. i donno the cause of this.. cant imagine why..

well this is only hardware issues.. maybe coz of loose connection, noise etc..
PC side has nothing to do with it.

On additional side for debugging you can tap data coming from XBEE receiver, so you can make out what data is being sent from xbee.

I see the code for step motor h l 298 to rotate 45 degree, but all delay time, if I want to input sensor to h the pulses to stepmotor
