Qserialport Arduino garbage data

  • I am attempting to read through the serialport from an arduino. I just receive weird characters.
    Here is a screenshot

    #include <QCoreApplication>
    #include <QDebug>
    #include <QSerialPort>
    #include <QSerialPortInfo>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <QTimer>
    #include "event.h"
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);
        QSerialPort *arduino = new QSerialPort();
        //QSerialPortInfo info = new QSerialPortInfo();
        //QSerialPort *arduino;
        static const quint16 arduino_uno_vendor_id = 9025;
        static const quint16 arduino_uno_product_id = 67;
        QString arduino_port_name;
        bool arduino_is_available;
       qDebug() <<QSerialPortInfo::availablePorts().length();
       //qDebug() <<info.portName();
       arduino_is_available = false;
       arduino_port_name = "";
       arduino = new QSerialPort;
      foreach(const QSerialPortInfo &serialPortInfo, QSerialPortInfo::availablePorts()){
           //if(serialPortInfo.hasVendorIdentifier() && serialPortInfo.hasProductIdentifier()){
               //if(serialPortInfo.vendorIdentifier() == arduino_uno_vendor_id){
                //   if(serialPortInfo.productIdentifier() == arduino_uno_product_id){
                       arduino_port_name = serialPortInfo.portName();
                       arduino_is_available = true;
    //       }
    //   }
       char buf[1024];
           qint64 lineLength = arduino->readLine(buf, sizeof(buf));
           if (lineLength != -1) {
               // the line is available in buf
           for(int i = 0; i < 1024; i++){
           QString x = QString(arduino->readAll());
       //event *j = new event();
      // j->pulse(arduino);
      // QCoreApplication::processEvents(QEventLoop::AllEvents, 100);
      // }
        return a.exec();

    Has anyone seen this before?

  • Did you try to read data using putty or other serial port terminal?
    I think its also good idea to set DataBits, FlowControl and StopBits
