I am trying to find the best way to log the info from my two vesc six controllers. What do you guys recommend?
Either using an Arduino with a SD Card breakboard, or a MODIFIED app with bluetooth.
metr.at app seems to work with the latest beta (hexacopter can tell you a bit more about this one).
Ackmaniac's app "VESC Monitor" is also now compatible (but not tested yet).
Since the last Update (1.6.2) of the metr.at App it works very good. You only have to change the tx and rx Pin.
Always worth tossing in the tried/true Eagletree datalogger v4. Simple inline, and can add sensors for temp/rpm/etc. etc.
Thanks for the replies guys. I will try out some of the apps.
FYI, I did the beta testing of Ackmaniac's update for VESC 6 compatibility.
After some corrections, it works great now (Android only, but no need of special BT module).
I noticed that the communication protocol changed (a little), has anyone a description / example on how to implement the latest version so I can update my Matlab code?
Check RollingGecko Arduino library, branch VESC 6 :
I finally re-worked my Eagle Tree v4 eLogger. Didn't like the unwieldy wires, so eliminated them. Now a simple XT90 in/out and much easier to drop inline to test a setup:https://goo.gl/zVovUj
And some testing on my guest board, and GF's Vanguard i built for her:https://goo.gl/Y6ou4zhttps://goo.gl/bYowz1
Great info to know - a couple good hills around my house, one longer ride and one quick ride on her board. See consistently around 46-51A peak load. Both single setups and will test next with dual and VESC Six to compare.
Can anyone tell me how can I log data from VESC tool to my computer in excel file or something like that ? I would like to process and analyze the data like motor current, battery current, torque ,etc? Is there any script or software available online? I am using a Ubuntu 18.04 OS.
