I'm new to this forum, my first post, English is not my native language and so on.. so please bear with me..
To begin with, I'm roughly 50 years old and guess I have almost a unrealistic expectations to this thing you call Arduino.. microcomputer and it's possibility's. Long time since I had make up my mind to enter this holy world of gale, programming microcomputer.
It's not as I don't have a programmers experience. I began 1980 in assembly (16kb Tandy Radio shack computer with Z80 1.77mhz processor, 8bit simple assembly language connected with tape recording and b/w tv travel monitor) but 5 years later start to program in Pascal for Dos, resident programs among them etc. and today my main language is Delphi. I reckon I could say I would be what is referred as, as extremely advanced programmer. Have build over 100 applications of all sorts but recently some challenging one as fully grown up payroll system, account system, sales- customer- supply- stock- system (all systems integrated), custom system, strategy game, etc.. etc..
But enough of introduction. Next two three years I'm going to do lot's of stuff regarding two stroke engine as a pet project's on my old snowmobile which I don't feel like suspend. To begin with the suspension system integrated with controller and air- shocks. Most likely I will also do injection system and perhaps turbocharge system if everything goes well.
My programmers experience have tough me one thing above other and that is planing and knowledge. To know in details what one is going into.. way ahead.
Even though I'm not going into any project this winter I have been drawing rough diagrams of all kinds of problems and hopefully, solutions. As for now one problem I think I will stumble on is a "sensor lagging", specially in injections system, even also on turbo- and ignition systems.
The speed is enormous, 8.500 rpms or 140 round per second and in every cycle and in it's 360° space of piston travel, lot's of stuff is going on, stuff which demands extreme precision and no what so ever tolerance for lagging of any kind.
Arduino and it's power will be my first thing to consider or judge whether or not I'm on right track.
I will use this thread in the future so I doesn't has to introduce me and this project all over again. Hope that is not against any rules here.
Thanks ahead and I will be in touch.
