    Hi, I decided that I will do 2DOF simulator, as a substitute for final exams at school. I would like to do it through the Arduino but serial port I used only for writing and i do not know how to use it for reading from simtools. Can you help me solve this problem? I have arduino mega 2560. For Motor control I will use L298N. I find here some arduino codes but i need to make it by myself. And i must understand this code. Please, help me with this, and sorry for my bad english.

    is using an arduino code required for this project for the final exam?
    If you are unsure of code the Pololu JRK is an easier option.

    Best use an existing code then. Start a new thread stating your planned build and check out the codes around. I believe @prilad code is the better one you can use.
    As I dont use an ard, I cannot advise further, but others will see your new thread and advise.
