Hi ThereThe MDBT42Q works as stand alone, it connect to the train via bluetooth and runs the different command when the buttons are press. If you familiar with the arduino its very similar, In fact running it on a Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect or a esp32 would also work. If think a few people have made version of it that runs on a esp32. I have a esp32 and the train here so will try and see if i can get it to work over the weekend and feedback. What is you set up It sounds like you have the train already, do you have mac/pc as well ? if so what type ?CheersJames
Sorry for slow reply, Yes I think this is the same with mine as well, however I think you can get feedback from the sensor via one the code commands so you could build it in the program to check the sensor and it runs the train.
I am not very familiar wit raspberry pi but i pretty sure it will, have a look at https://nathan.kellenicki.com/node-poweredup/, it can run natively in node.js or in browserI hope that helpsCheersJames
I am not very familiar with raspberry pi but I would of thought it would and should a lot simpler have a look at https://nathan.kellenicki.com/node-poweredup/ that run can run in browser or in node.js
Sorry for late reply, I would love to say yes but unfortunately not at the moment
Just seen your made it, well done is looks great, did you make any improvements ?
Great well done, Please keep me updated on it
So for late replyI think they are the same chip but I guess you would need to flash is with Espriuno bootloader however this is really out of my depth, it properly worth asking the question on the Espriuno forums they really are quite helpful
Hi FgeerI would of though it would be possible of Arduino, I am temped to try but it's a on a long list of project i may never get round to doingI hope solder directly on to the chip goes well, I would love hear/see your finished project
I would of thought you could connect to the train using the arduino ble library and a arduino with bluetooth ie the 'Nano BLE', but I have never used ithttps://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/ArduinoBLE
That a real shame, What does it cost in the netherlands, the breakout option is on £20 in the uk https://shop.espruino.com/mdbt42q-breakout
Yes that correct
Thankyou that's very kind
