Arduino speed reference custom app

Postby GSanta » 18 Jan 2017, 13:50

Hi guys,

I've a question about setting a speed reference to the VESC.
Simply I would like to send from an Arduino a speed reference to the VESC. I would like to send an "RPM reference" in real time.
The easiest way to do that is to write a custom application where the Arduino communicates using UART protocol and giving to the VESC the rpm reference value?
Or there are any other easiest way?

Many thanks for your help,
best regards.
Giovanni.

I don't think you have to write the "custom application", on the VESC you just activate the UART application. It can accept speed (RPM) commands just fine.

The arduino application is very easy. It is just a few bytes to send.
