Hey Jassper... long time no post, how did you get on with this?

Is the board a winner?  Looking for something with more pins and space than a standard Arduino.  Cheers.

Will you be doing a deal with the ITDB02 Arduino Shield v1.2  for it too?

Or at least any updates when it is going to be in stock?  I don't particularly want to buy the LCD if I can't use it smiley-grin

I have them, somewhere... I'll dig them out, and you don't need to use extra sensors, just usse the ones you already have.

From memory the voltage range is between 0-5 volts, but let me grab the link for you... might take a while though as I think it might be on my work PC.

I have a Scirocco, so basically the same wiring loom.  Out of interest are you running injected or carbs?   smiley-wink

Cool, so connect those four together on the same source.  That's one sorted.

When you say increase the value of the base, by how much and what does that do?  I'm guessing it makes it less sensitive and jittery?

And so far as "skill of the programme" I'm still starting out with Arduino after a long stint off doing not so techie things... kids, life, wife (although not in that order)

Apologies for dragging this thread out of hte grave, however seemed the most pertinent thread out of the ones I've found.

In terms of wiring the 5v supplies can the 4 be wired to the same 5volt source?



I'm waiting on a couple of components, and the stepper I have is 5volt, so I assume that they can all come off the 5 Volt source on the board?

Also, in terms of running steppers, how many feasibly can be run off one Arduino before processing becomes too much.  the inputs share common earth, so each one has one input

Cheers, and apologies for the newbie question, it's my first foray into stepper motors smiley-grin

Never mind, figured it out... having only 4 connections threw me, for reference there is 145ohm across each of the pairs.

Now to have a play smiley-grin

OK, so I don't particularly wanna break these by just randomly hooking stuff to them, so thought I'd ask if anyone has any hints n tips as to these stepper motors.



These are the only markings that I can see on the body, means absolutely nothing to me whatsoever, and I can't determine their stepping range.



And the four connectors...

Any help anyone?

Many thanks,
Rich

That's coool  smiley-grin

Might have to have a bash at it myself!

Well executed and a very good implementation of your project working with your PC.  Job job! smiley

Fair does... although I'm intrigued why you would want to control something whilst you're in a business meeting?

Don't get me wrong, I can see an application for it,  I just fail to see the application at the present moment for what you're doing right now  smiley-grin

I can think of many applications,, but nothing for discreetly controlling a robot or mouse pointer.

Monitoring a persons muscle balance / movement ... yes, I get that.  But not this at the moment  :-?

Interesting that you're using sensors strapped directly to your body...

Did you think about potentially using an exoskeleton instead?  Similar to the robot things in Avatar I suppose.



Not the best picture, but if you've seen the film you'll get it  :-*
