Twin wheeler modified for arduino simplified serial protocol to sabertooth v2

  1. 1. //TWIN WHEELER MODIFIED FOR ARDUINO SIMPLIFIED SERIAL PROTOCOL TO SABERTOOTH V2 //**********THIS VERSION JUST TESTS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ARDUINO AND SABERTOOTH AND MOTORS PLUS DEADMAN SWITCH**************** //*********** DEADMAN SWITCH MUST BE PRESSED IN, MOTORS WILL STOP IF RELEASED ********************** //MOTORS WILL INCREASE IN SPEED BY 10% EVERY 5 SECONDS UNTIL 50% OF FULL POWER IS REACHED //THEY WILL THEN GO DOWN TO ZERO IN STEPS OF 10%. //BOTH WHEELS SHOULD BE SPINNING IN SAME DIRECTION AT THE SAME SPEED AT ALL TIMES ELSE YOU WILL HAVE WIRED ONE MOTOR UP BACK TO FRONT //SABERTOOTH MUST HAVE DIP SWITCHES SET TO THE SERIAL MODE:i.e. DIP switches 1, 3, 5 and 6 set to ON, the remainder set to OFF //IMU NOT CONNECTED AT THIS POINT (CAN BE PHYSICALLY CONNECTED IF YOU LIKE BUT ARDUINO WILL NOT BE READING IT AT ALL) //ONLY THING YOU NEED IS DEAD MAN SWITCH TO DIGITAL PIN 9 (+5V TO PIN 9 WHEN SWITCH PRESSED, PULL DOWN RESISTOR FROM PIN 9 TO GND KEEPS IT AT 0V OTHERWISE) //J. Dingley March 1 2011 For Arduino 328 Duemalinove or similar with a 3.3V accessory power output //i.e. the current standard Arduino board. #include <SoftwareSerial.h> //******************** IMPORTANT *************************** //Set dip switches on the Sabertooth for simplified serial and 9600 Buadrate. Diagram of this on my Instructables page// //i.e. DIP switches 1, 3, 5 and 6 set to ON, the remainder set to OFF //******************** IMPORTANT *************************** //Digital pin 13 is serial transmit pin to sabertooth #define SABER_TX_PIN 13 //Not used but still initialised, Digital pin 12 is serial receive from Sabertooth #define SABER_RX_PIN 12 //set baudrate to match sabertooth dip settings #define SABER_BAUDRATE 9600 //simplifierd serial limits for each motor #define SABER_MOTOR1_FULL_FORWARD 127 #define SABER_MOTOR1_FULL_REVERSE 1 #define SABER_MOTOR2_FULL_FORWARD 255 #define SABER_MOTOR2_FULL_REVERSE 128 //motor level to send when issuing full stop command
