A new version of Fuelino Calibration Tool is available on the Fuelino Project page. From a graphical point of view, this new "1.0 beta 2" version is similar to the previous one. Some modifications have been implemented to adapt it to the most recent software for Fuelino Proto3. After opening the EXE file "SimpleSerial.exe", the … Continue reading "Fuelino Calibration Tool 1.0 beta 2 released"
This article explains the structure of Fuelino software. The software source code, which is available on GitHub at this link, is composed by many "cpp" and "h" C++ language files divided into sub-folders. In order to understand the software behavior, it is necessary to have a look at the "ino" file, which is the Arduino … Continue reading "Explanation about Fuelino software structure"
Today, I released, on GitHub, the new SW (SW 1.0 beta 5) for Fuelino Proto3. This software includes quite all functions, except for the IMU sensor signal acquisition, which is available, but still requires some tuning (I need to properly calibrate the analog filter, to smooth the noise created by engine vibrations, and also find … Continue reading "Fuelino SW 1.0 beta 5 available now"
Recently, I wanted to connect my Fuelino Proto3 to the Raspberry Pi 3 (with Raspbian Jessie Lite) which I bought some weeks ago. The Pi has a very interesting feature: same as for a normal PC, it has USB ports which can be used to both communicate and power any device. In order to connect … Continue reading "How to connect Arduino and Raspberry Pi using USB and C++"
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"
