(xQueueGenericReceive)- assert failed! after esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records()

Postby speedcuber92 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 2:20 pm

Hello all, I recently started with freeRTOS on esp32 using ESP-IDF.
I'm trying to build and app that simply scans all available networks, and prints the details...
In the event handler, the wifi scan is started upon SYSTEM_EVENT_STA_START and then, upon SYSTEM_EVENT_SCAN_DONE a binary semaphore is given to a task.
Inside the task, esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_num() and esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records() are called.
Ufortunately, app crashes with the following:
C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/esp-idf/components/freertos/queue.c:1441 (xQueueGenericReceive)- assert failed!
abort() was called at PC 0x4008bfa0 on core 1
0x4008bfa0: xQueueGenericReceive at C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/esp-idf/components/freertos/queue.c:2037


Backtrace: 0x4008d353:0x3ffd7ee0 0x4008d4ab:0x3ffd7f00 0x4008bfa0:0x3ffd7f20 0x400d244a:0x3ffd7f60
0x4008d353: invoke_abort at C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/esp-idf/components/esp32/panic.c:649

0x4008d4ab: abort at C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/esp-idf/components/esp32/panic.c:649

0x4008bfa0: xQueueGenericReceive at C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/esp-idf/components/freertos/queue.c:2037

0x400d244a: app_task at C:/msys32/home/Toni/esp/wifi-scan-test/main/wifi-scan-test.c:57
I noticed that app would not crash if all the functions are called from the event handler directly, or if I comment out esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records() function inside the task!
I checked the line 1441 inside queue.c but I really don't understand how could I affect this from the app...
Please help.

Re: (xQueueGenericReceive)- assert failed! after esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records()

I'll stick my neck out and say your problem is here:

Code: Select all

ESP_ERROR_CHECK(esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records(&num_of_scanned_aps, &ap_records));
This statement asks to retrieve "num_of_scanned_ap" records and place them in the storage pointed to by "&ap_records". However, your definition:

Code: Select all

wifi_ap_record_t ap_records;
is only a single record. I think what you want to do is determine the number of records you are about to retrieve and then allocate a buffer large enough to hold them all and pass in the buffer as the target of the copy command.

Ok I'll try that, thanks!
Meanwhile I tried the same code, only this time I didn't use semaphore, but event group, and it didn't crash...weird stuff...I'll try to expand the buffer and let you know what happens.

Ok so I did what you told me and it works like a charm now. Thank you very much!
