I am a real newbie, my Arduino (actually a "YourDuinoRobot" compatible, Duemilanove clone?) only arrived yesterday and I have never coded C++. However I paid the rent by coding Delphi for a decade or so and feel I am potentially up to the coding side.
Now, my project which I would like comment on please. I am considering a DDC (i.e. model train) controller for our Lego trains set. The trains are already fitted with decoders so I am only interested in a controller at this stage.
I am planning to use a PC to send a table of train addresses with speed, function etc which the Adruino will convert to the required NRMA DCC block format and pass it to an H-bridge motor controller circuit to drive the tracks.
It sounds like a big job for a newbie and I am hoping there are libraries that will make it easier for me.
Any comments greatly appreciated.
