Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Gecko, You may have already known this, but the feather w/ bluetooth can only act as a peripheral device. This means that the HM-10 has to act as the central, which it can do, but I'm assuming will need to be programmed from the vesc? I'm still waiting on my vesc, but I'm hoping to experiment with a...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

I wouldn't power the oled through the feather, just because it could possibly draw more current than the regulator can supply (I think. I'd have to look at the datasheet again). The display does have its own function to turn on and off (also black pixels draw very little power anyway), so just send ...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Oh yeah, I already started a quick program as a configurator for the controller that I figured would be nice. I was just experimenting really. Are you programming it for the feather, so to implement into gecko's? Or a program on the pc to interact with the controller (either through usb or bluetooth...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Wow you 2 work quick! I personally like the idea of the fram. I ordered it and the feather, as well as a uart ble board. The sd card is nice because it's easily replaceable, but I don't think necessary since you could just attach your controller via the usb port or bluetooth and copy data off the ch...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Here is the BLE Guide: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B8SUHnnHaP-aQnhFOWFsVzRyamM&export=download I will read through it and try to work some examples. Anyone else who has and or is getting a feather, take a look at it too. Edit: Also something I just saw gave me an idea for the future. So to confi...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

The vibrations actually is a good argument to keep the sd card off of the board side, I think my problem is just the space. I was hoping to use a nunchuck as well and I don't know where a sd reader could fit in there. I do think the reader built into the oled like this one would take up less space. ...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Please don't forget the SD-card. We will need it to save setting after switch off. For example traveled KM. The feather has no EEPROM. This is a few months late but since @s28400 is using the feather in his latest prototype and I just read through this all, I wanted to jump in. Via arduino.cc: Part...
