-= Note =-
These drivers are for RobotC 1.46 and higher and are part of the
v1.0 version of the 3rd Party RobotC Drivers suite.
-= Changes in this version =-
* Added support for the new HiTechnic SMUX and created functions for all supported sensors to allow
access via the SMUX.
* Added support for the new HiTechnic Colour Sensor
* Added support for the new HiTechnic Sensor MUX
* Added support for the Mindsensors RCX MUX
* Added support for the Mindsensors PF Mate
* Added support for the latest alpha release of ROBOTC and its ability to distinguish between signed and unsigned.
-= Previous Changes =-
* Changed the minimal version of RobotC for the drivers.
There were problems with version 1.40
* NEW: Added driver for AT24C512 EEPROM chip.
* NEW: Added Light Sensor driver with calibration! You can use one of the test programs
to calibrate for both white and black. Calibration data is saved to a file which is read
when the driver is first used. You can also use the API to write your own calibration program.
* I2C bus error handling code added to common.h. When an error occurs, the bus
is now flooded with 5 packets. This usually clears it up. The packet is then retransmitted.
Note that this is done only once for each packet.
* HTPB driver has error checking removed, this is now handled by common.h
* The drivers will generate an error when compiled with a RobotC less than 1.46.
-= TODO =-
* Add Mindsensors Line Leader driver, waiting for firmware API to stabelise
* Add UART (RCX) functionality to IR Link driver.
