This 1st video shows the dashboard of a VW Passat B6 2006 being controlled directly by a micro-controller (an old ARM M3 on a LM3S8962 Texas Instruments discovery board) using the automotive CAN bus.

Same story here as with the last couple of posts: these are some rather old attempts at improving a previous project, without much success, even after a considerable amount of effort… Hence the decision to still create a post as a future reference.

This is something I’ve already worked on but was never really happy with the result, mainly because the potentiometre that I used was of poor quality and hence non linear and “jumpy”…
The problem is simple: I need to have a reliable and easy to use servo tester, that I can use to test/play with a standard RC servo or ESC or anything else that uses the same control protocol.

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but 2 kids and a new job take their toll 🙂
Most importantly, for this past few months, I’ve been thinking of a way to say “thank you” to my former colleagues that somehow managed to offer me the absolute best leaving present: a Meccano kit and a prepaid Maplin card (this is the equivalent of the now defunct Radioshack, for my U.S. readers) !
Ex fellow markiteers, this post is for you, thank you for your present and more importantly thank you for having been such nice colleagues for almost 9 years !
