i am using the ros_arduino_bridge on a Arduino UNO with encoders. Also i am using a Dagu Trex (arduino nano) whichs subscribes to the "cmd_vel". After i flashed the sketch to the Arduino, i can connect to the Arduino and use it. Works all perfect.

But when I close the node and want to connect to the Arduino again it is not possible. I checked the port and it is correct.

Once i reflash it works again until i reconnect again.

This is the log when i try to connect again:

Can you please let us know what version of ROS you are using (e.g. Hydro, Indigo) and which branch of ros_arduino_bridge you are using (e.g. hydro-devel, indigo-devel).

Hi, sorry i forgot to mention it.

Ros Distro : Jade
Branch : indigo-devel

I haven't tested the package with Jade, but try doing a "git pull" in your ros_arduino_bridge directory to get the latest indigo-devel updates. I pushed an update a few months ago that puts a try-except block around the get_baud() function.
