Topic: analogWrite problem with X-Sim (Read 813 times) previous topic - next topic

Earlier on I posted in the "Motors, Mechanics, and Power" part of the forum because I was having a spot of bother with my instrument cluster that I'm trying to make for LFS.
My problem was that only one of the instruments would work at a time and it all depended on which part of information the Arduino received first.

I discovered after a quick google search that the Arduino can only output one "Tone" at a time, and I was trying to output two. That's why it didn't work, and so, I'm using tone for the speedo (because I know how I can make the Tone "command" work accurately) and "analogWrite" for the rev counter, however the rev counter doesn't really work, when I activate the X-Sim it just makes the needle go to its maximum and stay there, unless i set the value 100% correct, then it stays at below zero when the engine is off, however when I turn the engine back on it sends it flying to its maximum again.

If I then proceed to do full throttle ingame and just let it drop from max to zero (ingame), the rev counter (on the cluster) will drop by just a few RPM at a few points.

Kind of difficult to explain, tried my best. If anyone want's some screenshots and/or the code to see for yourself let me know :D

There is a third-party Tone library that will allow multiple simultaneous tones on different pins.

Well, I didn't get around to try until today, but I am kind of wondering, how one would go about to add this to the code, as I'm using Herctrap's code, I don't really know how I'd implement that tone library into the code.

If anyone knows, here's the code, if you would know how to, any help is very much appreiciated! :D


Code: [Select]
int rpm;
int i;
int leds;
int Speed;
int fuel;
int ebrake;
int brake;
int fuelled;
int Turbo;
int gear;
int previous_potion = 0;
int rotate;

char kind_of_data;


void setup(){

  Serial.begin(115200);

  pinMode(2, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(3, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(7, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(12, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);


}



void loop()
{
  //****************************** READ DATA FROM SERIAL ******************************
  while(Serial.available() > 0)
  {

    kind_of_data = Serial.read();
    if (kind_of_data == 'R' ) Read_Rpm();
    if (kind_of_data == 'S' ) Read_Speed();
    if (kind_of_data == 'F' ) Read_Fuel();
    if (kind_of_data == 'E' ) Read_EBrake();
    if (kind_of_data == 'B' ) Read_Brake();

  }


  //****************************** READ DATA FROM SERIAL END ******************************
}

void  Read_Rpm(){

  delay(1);
  int Rpm100 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Rpm10 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Rpm1 = Serial.read()- '0';

  int rpm = 100*Rpm100 + 10*Rpm10 + Rpm1;
  analogWrite(5,map(rpm,8,128,2,128));


}

void Read_Speed(){

  delay(1);
  int Speed100 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Speed10 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Speed1 = Serial.read()- '0';

  Speed = 100*Speed100 + 10*Speed10 + Speed1;

  tone(9, map(Speed,128,255,19,259));

}

void Read_Fuel(){
  delay(1);
  int Fuel100 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Fuel10 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Fuel1 = Serial.read()- '0';

  analogWrite(2,map(fuel,127,255,53,183));
  if (fuel<135) digitalWrite(10,HIGH);
  if (fuel>135) digitalWrite(10,LOW);

}


void Read_EBrake(){
  delay(1);
  int EBrake100 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int EBrake10 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int EBrake1 = Serial.read()- '0';

  ebrake = 100*EBrake100 + 10*EBrake10 + EBrake1;

  if (ebrake>200) digitalWrite(3,HIGH);
  if (ebrake<200) digitalWrite(3,LOW);

}
void Read_Brake(){
  delay(1);
  int Brake100 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Brake10 = Serial.read()- '0';
  delay(1);
  int Brake1 = Serial.read()- '0';

  brake = 100*Brake100 + 10*Brake10 + Brake1;

Anyone?

You don't describe what you want the code to do.  Kind of hard to make recommendations without knowing the goal.

I want to add the library you linked me to the code, making the speed and RPM both run off tones, if it's possible :)
Couldn't figure how to add an instance in such a way that it would work :l
