Hey folks, first let me say great community you have here, keep it up!
In our institute we are trying to simulate human-less transportation. They can be cabs on either railway or road.
we will use arduino cars to simulate first. Then if the project succeeds we will have real ones
I am the one who will simulate the battery consumption. let's say like if 3 person is onboard battery will be discharged 100mA/min or no person on board 65mA/min, or the road conditions (uphill-downhill) and so on.
I wanna simulate 2250mAh li-po battery, to give estimated time, like computers, cell phones. And if battery is low the car needs to go to station for charging.
I know little bit of arduino. I was thinking connecting buttons and lcd to arduino then when buttons are pressed multipliers on the formula will change.
And the program will count down from 2250 till reserved power ~150mAh
do you guys think this is feasible or do you have any sample codes?
any help is appreciated.btw i just realized that i did not introduced myself, I am studying computer science/engineering. 3rd year student
