Re: Arduino Airsoft Controller with Display

I'm working right now to get the display to read the serial line and display the data. I'm having a fair amount of difficulty with that, even though it should be a pretty easy program. Once I can read and display the serial data consistently, I'll have the display working very quickly. I just keep b...

I'm working on getting better information about interrupts (Dan, I hate to keep pestering you about it, but you're a guru in this area).
I need to leave digital pins two and three free for interrupts, correct?

Sorry about the lack of posts. I've been puzzling the serial sending and receiving without huge success (but some small minor successes). Also, it looks like I'm going back to real work (Another 6 hours of waiting to see if everything is holding together). Is there any kind of timing disadvantage to...

Get yours done!

I'm waiting for some IR LEDs to come in, and then I'm going to play with beam forming in the basement

I don't think it's that smart... When I first started playing with it, I had issues with programming the Arduino with the display attached. I think I may have to get a DPDT switch, something that disconnects the display when the USB connection needs to be active. That will solve a lot of problems an...

When I first went back to this project, in December or January, I looked at using Avenue33's code. There were a couple of issues. First, his library hadn't been updated for use with Arduino 1.0, and required a hodge-podge of NewSoftSerial and some modification of other libraries. I couldn't get thin...

Alright, I think we're at the next stage. I need to figure out the serial communication between the Arduino and the uOLED. I'm not completely sure how serial communications work, so I'm going to talk out loud. I think both systems are capable of communicating at 57600 (56K) baud. Baud refers to the ...

Yep. I can't rave about this screen enough (except for the learning curve, the price you pay for an insane number of options). http://www.4dsystems.com.au/prod.php?id=85 OLED display Able to be driven either through an onboard microprocessor (taking information from onboard I/O pins and serial) or d...

Have fun on vacation! I'm playing with the display this week. I think I found what my problem was. It's going to be a bit of an uphill battle for me. The display uses a different language for programming. It's not rocket science, once I get beyond the serial commands. It would probably help if I had...

I had a friend over the other day, and his big questions were about beam size and forming (Forget my project. He "hrmph'd" over it, and that was that). He asked some real pointed questions (that I probably should have been able to answer, but I'm not real sure about the practical applications of the...

In that vein, I'm updating the "To-Do" list, before I can think about making the PCB backpack: 1. Low Battery Cut-Out 2. Thermal Monitoring 3. Selector Switch (I have a cool part for this, but it's very limited) 4. Pin Breakout and Allocation (There are certain pins that are going to be common to ev...

That's what I'm hoping for. For the "benchtop" testing, I'm just going to wire up a push-button. Again, the problem with the AEG's is that each model is different. The P90, AR-series, etc, all have different mechanisms for selecting the fire mode. Also, this system potentially allows for more fire m...

The code needs some tweaking, but the basic fire control coding is done. Safe, Semi, Burst, Full is all working, though there are some occasional "extra-fires". I'll post some code in the morning.
