Looking for an Arduino simulator

Hello,

I'm looking for an Arduino simulator that supports the following

The following hardware

Arduino Uno
L298N - Or anything closely resembling this motor controller
HC-12 - If this is not available then at least the ability to access the serial monitor

And the ability to run the following sketch at an-ardurover/An_Ardurover.ino at master · joneal92110/an-ardurover · GitHub

If anyone can help me with this, that would be great.

I'm basically working with hardware that looks similar like this (broken out) and I'd like to be able to create a prototype like this online or on a simulator. I'm quite flexible. I know that not everything in the real world can be created online so I'm looking for any ideas.

Thanks!

Hi, welcome to the forum.

I'm looking for a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow :rainbow:
Here I compare Tinkercad with Wokwi: Virtual Online Arduino and ESP32 Simulator - Wokwi Arduino Simulator features - #3 by Koepel

Wokwi has no analog simulation. You could put leds for the L298N signals. It can use the Serial API of the Chrome browser to connect to the real world.
Tinkercad has a L293D, is that close enough ?

The "Automaton" library is not in the Arduino Library Manager. That means that Wokwi can not select it. You can manually upload all the files to a Wokwi project.
Tinkercad has no possibility to upload a file or select an other library then a few included libraries.

There are about 10 or 20 other simulators. I have tested most of them, but Tinkercad and Wokwi are the only two that are actually useful.

Sometimes it is easier to test-run the real project.
