I would like to use my new arduino to replace a handcontroller on our digital slot car circuit with the board keeping the last command given. Be grateful for any thoughts or comments on the feasability of this project.
Theres two parts to this project as I would like to control the car/board using the touchscreen on my netbook.
Heres a schema
(In time I would like to be able to record the commands so the system is able to "drive" the car,with maybe a launch control and automatic pit stop, but lets not run before we can walk).
The digital system controller is slightly different to the normal pot type controller as it’s a combined signal giving throttle and lane change information.
The throttle input is 10 stages with the values for each being;
0 - 0v
The lane change function is part of the input to the control system sending 2.6v if pressed and 1.3v if not pressed.
These seem to be well within the 5v output of the board.
Be grateful for any comments regarding going about this.
