2022-11-14 (M) PoweredInlineSkatesRev2 Starting calibration coding

I want to start my calibration routine with a serial command instead of a physical switch or coded input. The easiest way to recognize serial information is to act on a single letter instead of a word because you have to store each character and wait for a newline, then see which word arrived. The letter "H" will trigger a help menu describing possible commands. If someone were to send the word "HELP," they would get the same response the instant the first letter arrived, and none of the other letters associated with commands.

I added placeholder functions for all the things I wanted to trigger with, then filled them in with working code. The command to display the seconds since booting is a straightforward way to confirm the controller is running and tracking time. I created a bit that toggled when the controller would notify the computer of the rotation timing. I began converting my pseudo-code into legitimate code, starting with an interrupt function to detect motor rotations. I got as far as recognizing the minimum, maximum, and average of ten readings, then printing them.
