I am making a 2017 Yamaha Wolverine Rspec autonomous. I am tapping into the speed sensor wire that is under the hood. To put simply, I need that signal to go to my Arduino and then to my computer to show the data at different speeds. How would I accomplish this within the Arduino software? Also, is there an easy way to show this data on an oscilloscope display on my pc or even through the Arduino software?
Note - I am an EE student but have not worked with Arduino before. I can learn any code that is needed, I mostly am interested in the process to accomplish this.
Would it not be possible to connect the speed pulse (what I believe to be 0-5V) directly to the Arduino? The reason I ask, is that in other forums, the general consensus is that tapping into a low voltage pulse will not negatively effect the signal. Again, I am new to Arduinos so just let me know if my questions do not make sense.
An EE student will have defined what the "signal" is in terms of voltage and shape of the signal and the frequency of the signal and the relationship between frequency of the signal and speed of the device.
You need all that information in order to be able to design the interface circuit to an Arduino and ultimately to write a program to process that signal.
