How to implement an IMU using MPU-6050 and Fuelino Proto3

This guide shows how I implemented an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) using Fuelino Proto3 (equipped with Arduino Nano) and an MPU-6050 accelerometer and gyroscope module. I will use this library to calculate the motorcycle leaning angles (Tait-Bryan angles: roll pitch yaw) based on the raw sensors data logged on the Micro SD card. Fuelino Proto3 … Continue reading "How to implement an IMU using MPU-6050 and Fuelino Proto3"

Fuelino Proto3 wiring diagram

In this article, I will explain how to connect a Fuelino Proto3 to your motorcycle. Fuelino is a fuel injection controller and data logger designed for motorcycles equipped with EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection). By regulating the fuel injected in the cylinder, you can increase the power of your engine. Even if this modification is optional, … Continue reading "Fuelino Proto3 wiring diagram"

Fuelino proto2 PCB mounting

Some weeks ago, I received at home the second prototype of PCB for the Fuelino shield (compatible with Arduino Nano r3). Since all components are "through hole mount", and there are quite many, the soldering and testing phase required about 1 h. First of all, I decided to solder the resistors (they are the components … Continue reading "Fuelino proto2 PCB mounting"

An introduction to Fuelino project

Today I have the pleasure to show you my latest project: Fuelino. The name comes from "Fuel" and "Arduino". The unit is a fuel controller for single cylinder engines, and it is addressed especially to small engine motorcycles and scooter (less than 250cc). The unit gives you the opportunity to modify the fuel injection control, … Continue reading "An introduction to Fuelino project"

SWseriale software serial library for Arduino

Recently, for my experiments, I am using an Arduino Nano 3.0 which I bought on Amazon Japan for a cheap price (300 Yen or so). One of the first things that I noticed is that this Arduino, equipped with Atmel ATmega328P microcontroller, unfortunately has only 1 hardware serial port available. For this reason, I decided … Continue reading "SWseriale software serial library for Arduino"
