Motorcycle and Car Data Logger

In these weeks, I started a new project, which consists in creating a low cost motorcycle and car data logger, using an Arduino 101. The system is able to log the following info, in real time: Fuel Injection Time (injector command timing) [us] Engine Speed (rotations per minute) [rpm] Throttle Position (signal from TPS, 0-5V … Continue reading "Motorcycle and Car Data Logger"

Arduino/Genuino 101 and SD card module

In this article I will explain how to interface an SD card module to Arduino 101. The module which I used is a CATALEX MicroSD Adapter (v1.0) and communicates via SPI communication protocol. The connection is the same as for Arduino Uno: GND: ground (0V) VCC: power supply (5V) MISO (Master Input Slave Output): Arduino … Continue reading "Arduino/Genuino 101 and SD card module"

Arduino 101 has arrived

Yesterday I received at home my first Arduino 101 (Genuino 101). I bought it on Yahoo Auctions for just 2,000 Yen. The board has the same size of an Arduino Uno, Ethernet and similar. But, instead of an Atmel microcontroller, it uses the new Intel Curie architecture. The frequency increases from 16MHz to 32MHz. The … Continue reading "Arduino 101 has arrived"

Reading GPS data using Arduino and a U-blox NEO-6M GPS receiver

It is possible to read, and log GPS data, such as time, position, speed, and so on, using an Arduino microcontroller plus an U-blox NEO-6M GPS receiver. For my test, I used an Arduino Ethernet and a U-blox NEO-6M GPS, which I bought on Amazon Japan for 2,580Yen (about 17 Euro), a very cheap price. … Continue reading "Reading GPS data using Arduino and a U-blox NEO-6M GPS receiver"
