hello Everso,

I believe that I can help you with this project.

Please take a quick loot at my website where you can see some of my current and past projects. If you think that I am a good match for your requirments please drop me an email to or a PM here in the forum

Cheers Pete.

The product is the hardware. When the product is released for sale, the code will be provided to all with no conditions in order to assist with sales. The secrecy is only during the development time as it would be very easy for others to copy the design. It is a low cost, low profit product and not worth the cost of a patent and the expenses of defending against infringement. Our hopes are to get it established as the original developer, with the best support and that copies would not be as attractive. We simply want a head start on those inevitable copies.

So do you want to pay for help or not ?

Personal I dont care what you do with code once you have paid for it.

PM me if you want to take this past the "talking about it" to "actually doing something" stage.

You can check out my credentials and abilities at

Cheers Pete.

Hello Jon,

OK so I get a lot of work from Freelancer and the system is set up to guard both parties. You only pay the milestone when you have the work for that milestone in you hands and have tested it to your satisfaction.

I also offer for my client to pay me through PayPal. This gives you a period to recover your money also should I not deliver what I have specified that I would.

I can help you with this problem, your requirement and  budget needs to be discussed and also your timescale. I live in France but moved her from the UK 9 years ago.

Take a look at me website and if you think that i can help you with this or just want to have a chat about your options please drop me an email to

Cheers Pete.

Hello Andy,

I am not from the UK either but I used to live there before i moved to live in France. I can offer the sort of expertise and advise that you are looking for.

Please take a look at my website to see the sort of projects that I normally get involved in. If you think that I am a good match for your requirments or just want a chat about your options please drop me an email to

Cheers Pete.

what are you willing to pay ?

Your requirments are not very explicit. I can hep you with this perhaps but i would need more information.

Cheers Pete.

Hello Cameron,

I am from the UK but i now live in France. I have quite a few people that i help mentor through project building. I will be willing to help you but unfortunately will not be able to come over to the UK to fix thinks in person.

Get your Dad to send me a PM since this is a public forum and I am sure he is monitoring and censoring the feedback.

Cheers Pete.

Sugar cubes is the way to go.

But think out of the box a little and away from robot arms to pick and place and think of a PEZ dispenser.

A stack of cubes spring loaded and pushed out one at a time like the sweet dispenser or even gravity fed in a downward direction to allow for a bigger stack.. A simple broken beam detector will tell you when you have nnn cubes left and need to refill the hopper.

Cheers Pete.

Since this is going to be a professional and commercial product then a proven coding template methodology might be your first port of call.

When working between platforms one would normally abstract the code.

You need to be thinking about HALs (Hardware Abstraction Layers) that communicate with the chosen hardware platform exposing a set of methods though a binary interface that can be consumed by the other layers.

This way your other layers dont know or care about what hardware they are running on and you can have a considerable amount of platform independent code shared between the platforms.

If you want to expand on this then feel free to PM me.

Cheers Pete.

Go on then I'll have a go.

PM me for contact details

yes but what is the problem you are having ?

Bainesbunch - it looks like it's actually open, not zero ohms, regardless of whether it's under water or dried out.

I suspect that there is subtle change in resistance or it would not work this is also supported by the fact that you can just add more of the sensor strips end to end according to the manual. Are you using a DMM if so set the resistance range to the mega and try again. in the very high range you should be able to see a change just be putting your fingers across the sensor tracks.

13  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Beginner trying to connect an Arduino board to a CAN bus... on: July 21, 2014, 01:51:27 pm
That CAN bus interface card will do the job for you . it has mounts for D9 connectors on the PCB. You can solder these your self and then go and get a D9 to OBDII interface cable from somewhere like protopic. there is a standard that is applied to this cable and so most of the reputable ones will work fine.

This is a good example

You can (no pun intended) then install the CAN libraries and talk to the CAN bus.

I have several commercial products out in the wild that use the Microchip chip-set that is used in this shield. If you need a more in depth explanation let me know.

Cheers Pete.

well the manual does not seem to indicate that there is an existing way to read any signal from the device without hacking it about a bit.

First thing i would do is open it up and see what is there to work with.

Are you sure it is reading ZERO ohms and not open circuit   ?

Cheers Pete.
15  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: cmath library error uploading to arduino on: July 21, 2014, 07:03:34 am
If I use the computer the code was originally written on everything works fine. But I am getting the following error trying to upload my program to Arduino using a new computer:

 ...\Arduino\libraries\T_Motor\T_Motor.cpp:13:17: fatal error: cmath: No such file or directory
 #include <cmath>

 I keep getting this error when I use the new computer. I thought that cmath was a common C++ library.

should that be  #include <cmath.h>

Note the "h"

Cheers pete
