Connecting a Rapsberry Pi with VESC?

vesc

#1

Is it Possible to install Bldc on a raspberry pi (zero) and connect it to the vesc while riding? It would be awesome to test a few configurations without going everytime inside to my computer. I also have a 5 inch lcd for it.


#2

It is definitively possible! You can even leave the raspberry pi in the VESC to log data and such stuff. But IMO a raspberry pi is way overkilled but simple to use.
Do it for science!


#3

I rly want to try this. but i have to figure out how to install everything on the raspberry.


#4

Interesting idea. I’m in the process of getting my pi hooked up to my 3d printer so I’m sure something could be done with say a Raspberry Pi Zero for esk8 use. If only my linux skills were anything more than terrible :frowning:


#5

Okay, power was no problem.


#6

What are you going to do for a keyboard and mouse? It would be nice to have vnc linked to the cellphone and program it there


#7

The lcd has a touchscreen :wink:


#8

I guess that bldc tool will not be very usable at that resolution (the qt UI doesn’t scale, fixed height and width) unless you can use a bigger resolution and do some pan-ning around the screen. Another option would be to carry a bag with a laptop/netbook and use a male to female usb extension that sticks out of your enclosure so you can stop, plug, write config and go.


#9

Or maybe you can use sth like TeamViewer and stream the screen to your phone
Ooor you wait till the bldc app is finished


#10

wow i didnt know that there will come a bldc app :slight_smile:
Okay then i can use my for something else. Do you know when the bldc app release?


#11

No but it will probably take some time…
@jacobbloy is your man :wink:
