i am making a project where it involves an RC car(i am using traxxas 1/16 e-revo) and integrated with arduino.
the idea is this: the car would normally be run with the provided radio control transmitter. i want the arduino to be able to read the pulse input (perhaps i can use pulse in -advice me!!) from the RECEIVER of the radio-control. when the arduino acknowledge the pwm from the transmitter to receiver, then the arduino can send the corresponding PWM to the ESC(electronic speed control) then to the motor. i want the arduino to have the capability to read the input i press from the radio control transmitter which is sent to the receiver.
when the arduino can read the inputs, i believe i can do hell lots of manupulating of the RC behaviour with the arduino. (this is one of the main of obstacle of my project). anybody has suggestions?
oya one, just wanna this is the rough idea without any pulses manupulation(so take input from receiver and output to the ESC) can i use the code like this:
"pulsein (read from the receiver) = pulsout(write to the ESC-motor)"
therefore, it will act exactly the same as the default radio control function but with the arduino as the middleman and able to read what is happening. thank you in advance
