Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

What have you connected to Vesc? A mega or a nano?
Currently the v6 branch is still in test because I have currently no hardware to test

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

I dont mean after switching. Ich mean the physical switch.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Set the Devisor to one.
Put the connection to a2 after the Power switch.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Great to hear, that the remote works! To your questions: To use it with one Cell just leave away the voltage divider at VOLTAGE_PIN To define which LED is for what define it here: //WS2812 settings #define NUM2812 4 #define BRIGHTNESS 20 #define LED_TX 0 //TX-Voltage #define LED_TRANS 1 //Transmissi...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi,

I used a simple voltage divisor with 2 resistors. I soldered it in a flying connection without PCB.

Depending on your quotient for voltage devisor your can set in the config.h:

//TX Voltage measurement
#define VOLTAGE_DIVISOR_TX 102.5

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi guys, At the moment I'm a bit more a passive participant as I started already with some new projects. I don't find the time to participate in the bluetooth implementation. But it is great to see your progress. Please don't forget to share your process here with us. I will review all pull-requests...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

@28400:
We should not forget, that the most of users here will not be able to program the ble chip that way. So we should take a look at a easy to reproduce way.

When can you release the code for your sensor?

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

We have maybe a new possibility:

Can handle central mode and has a arduino library...

Need now a bit more investigation.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

OK. Get it sorry.

To check the serial stream to the controller you can not use the terminal because you have to check an uint8 stream.
I use realterm instead http://realterm.sourceforge.net/
Select display as uint8. You need to switch the Arduino IDE Terminal of to use Realterm.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

@Jeefberky: Great job!

@Nordle: That must definetly be an issue with the serial configuration. You should use 115200 Baurdrate to read the information coming from the RX as this is set by default.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

We have not enough interfaces on the VESC site to consider 2 bluetooth modules. Maybe we should not stick to the bluetooth solution. As already said the nRF is already implemented on the VESC so that we can easily communicate to the VESC with some research effort to communicate directly to the VESC ...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

I hope also that adafruite releases a new firmware soon. The used framework in the VESC makes it to complex for me to implement the required code to bring the ble module in central mode. At the moment I'm not sure if it makes sense to create an own PCB as long as the feather module fulfills all the ...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

On the quick: Debugging only worked up to now on a 2560 with more than one serial port. Don't forget that we use the serial0 to communicate with the VESC.

For the first test it would be the best to read the stream on the serial from the RX arduino.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

From the technical site this is possible but I don't see it as a good solution to set the board as a master. Once we have a bluetooth module on the VESC we should also be able to use it with the mobile phone. There are already projects that realize that. But they need the VESC site as slave. I know ...

I was digging now a bit deeper into the bluefruite topic. It has a nRF51822 chip from Nordic. At the moment it does not support central mode. :( Here the statement from the Adafruit faq site: https://learn.adafruit.com/introducing-adafruit-ble-bluetooth-low-energy-friend/faq Can my Bluefruit LE modu...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Please make these test really careful. It sounds dangerous. @WTech: Please read a bit through the thread. In general it was more a community decision. One the one site is there the feather board with bluetooth and on the other hand we would not need anymore an Arduino on the board site. I already pr...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Try using the abs tachometer, any situation that makes the wheels go backwards? this would add negative distance if the abs is not used[/quote] You can use the reverse or simply roll the board backwards.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

The test was more or less a success. I checked it against GPS on the smart phone. Speed seams to be OK. Only in the traveled distance I still have a divergence. The remote calculate 3.3 km. The GPS showed 4 km. So the ratio is 0.825. It seams to be a straight ratio. Where could the mistake be? In th...
