Thank you!I probably won't have this ready for my first track day this year, on the 30th, but will aim to have it at least by mid season.I was also going to wire the push buttons into the left hand controls as my track bike doesn't really have or need headlights or indicators.
Just dive in! That's how I started. For your todo there's a couple ways you can do this:1. RaceRender already does this for you.2. Setup your own infrared beacon at the track. You will learn a lot about noise, signal degradation, and power requirements this way.3. Tap into the racetracks transponder setup. Most likely will be MYLAPS setup which fall under Title 47, Part 15 (47 CFR 15) FCC Rules. At its core root, its just an RFID signal. But figuring out what spectrum it's in is a whole different animal but it is an awesome way if you want to get into ham radio.Hopefully that'll give you some ideas. Have fun!
Firstly, great project! This is pretty much what I've been looking for as I currently use a phone with a bluetooth GPS for track day data logging and have been looking around for options to add throttle and brake to that as well.It seems simple enough and though I'm an absolute novice when it comes to circuitry, I'm seriously giving some thought to trying to build this.An todo I could request some way to segregate the individual laps or sectors using a GPS point at the Start/Finish line and/or sectors. I guess this could be done in the spreadsheeting software with a reasonably basic lookup but just a thought.
Thanks for the feedback! I edited the instructable with a little better clarification on the intro page so people don't get discouraged when they see the requirements.I was definitely one of those people before. A close call for me was more than enough to realize I needed to make a proper jig. Hopefully others do the same because there's a lot of DIY IoT devices for sale that mess with the mains voltage and seeing their subpar designs worries me a bit.
