Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Today was a productive day. AS promised I will finalize 0.6.x with NRF. Therefore I added a average calculation for rpm and current because I get data in a to high frequency from the vesc and on the display it is much to nervous to have a good measure. Then I also realized different screens and a sw...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

The pinout should become part of the config.h as it is already done for the nano. Here we never the last must set the #define's for the pins used in the program.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

No. Only an SD-card in the remote. That make no pain and doesn't need to much place.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi,

Yes, I got the BLE Version.
SD-card on the board: Not possible. As you remember, we have no arduino on the board site anymore. The Bluetooth module is attached directly to the uart.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi, As I already wrote, I made a general design change of the communication interface. It is currently in a newFeature branch. The UART communication is ready and must be tested. Only thenRF24 communication is not ready and still a hard bunch of work because a protocol must be implemented and this t...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

I would not place an SD-card to the board site. Due to the vibrations on the board we can have here bigger problems with the connectivity. An encryption is in my point of view not necessary. The bluetooth protocol guaranties, that only one device can be connected at once. And the VESc messages alrea...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

The experience I've had up to now with bluetooth modules is, that they can have a connection only to one device (TX or Smartphone). That is the main problem I think. Maybe someone has other experiences. Then please share. @isikxd: A topic are the writing circles to the eprom. 100.000. Is not much. I...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

HI,

For sure you should stay with your design! I'll concentrate at the moment on the software. At the next step I will go maybe on with an own design. I like your hallsensor approach. Maybe I will combine it with my magnet spring...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi,

I was not sure about the design if it is ergonomic. So I printed it our and tried it out. I my point of view it is to thin and to wide. Sorry for that honesty. Something like the nunchuk is much more ergonomic because it is more palm sized.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

To measure the voltage of the Tx battery you need a voltage devisor. That's what they are for. For example 2x 10 kOhm.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi,

Please checkout Version 0.6.2 from Github. I added

Code: Select all

#define OLED_USED
#define STATUS_LED_USED
By commenting them out you disable the functions. I only checked the compiling. Not the functionality!

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi, That was one of the reasons I made all the protocol changes. I want to be able to change the configuration of the controller. I special the rpm limit of the pid controller. Nver the less the PID controlled mode (that what is called nunchuk app) is my favorit. There you do not control the throttl...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi,

To implement the hall sensor you should write a class or library that alows to read it and gives back a vlue between 0 and 1023 or even better in a definable range.

The approach with the sensor look interesting.!

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Also any ideas on getting the vescs to play nice with the Arduino over Bluetooth like how you have over rf?
See my post before. Why do you think I'm doing all that stuff? ;)

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi, The Nano is a good solution and for around 3€ available on Ebay. But it needs 7-12V. So you must take a stepup regulator to use it with 1s. The mini has also a version for 3.3V. But I have no experience with it. I use a capacitor of 100 µF for the nrf module. That is only needed because of the w...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

The Nunchuck-App of the VESC uses both also for light etc. One can be skipped if you send instead a constant (128).
