v2.0 / Re: Bad actuator?
« Last post by hakcenter on November 30, 2018, 09:14:58 AM »
The LBB code is setup to wait for 2 things. First is the actuator needs to communicate back. Otherwise it'll never drop into the main loop. At the main loop, everything waits for the VR sensor / turbo to be spinning atleast 1000rpm.

If your actuator responds to your brake/cruise switches after enabling emulate.. You might have a VR problem. If it doesn't respond the actuator doesn't respond at all, even with emulate, there-in lies your issue.

What kind of actuator is it ? 351ve ? 300vg ?

v2.0 / Bad actuator?
« Last post by Tibbitts on November 29, 2018, 06:44:12 PM »
Thinking i might have a bad actuator.  Main screen on android app is just dashes, however emulate function responds to brake/cruise switches.  Actuator does power on.  The pins seem to be placed and secured in harnesses properly.  Trying to find a known working actuator locally to check against. Any thoughts?
thanks

v2.0 / Re: LBB Common Code
« Last post by hakcenter on November 27, 2018, 04:09:14 PM »
v3.0.0 update

Major Changes:
  • Bluetooth serial communication is extremely specific now.
    • All responses are byte length specific.
    • Ask commands are written with length of data to be sent first, then the LBB receive will know how many bytes to expect before timing out
    • So do not try to communicate through USB while connected via Bluetooth. It'll break both.

Code: [Select]
byte[] bytes = "bt_data".getBytes();
bt_out.write(bytes.length);
bt_out.write(bytes);
bt_out.flush();

Translates as, send 7, send "bt_data". LBB knows to expect 7 bytes, waits up to 0.5s before timing out waiting for said bytes to come in.

Okay so this is basically ready to go. I'm going to drive around on it for another week before letting the update rip.. but  it's basically all good to go.

Not really. The problem with these trucks is that there is no room for an air-to-air IC in the front. Between the radiator, AC condenser, and oil/trans coolers, there's no room. A water-to-air IC is possible, but I'm not interested in that right now. If I do anything, I'll add water-meth injection, run by the controller. Also, I'm only going to allow 15-16 PSI max so an IC isn't really needed.

looks good.. are intercoolers an option you can add though?

Hibernating... but not giving up...

Not much work on the controller lately, life just takes over sometimes, BUT there is progress on the mechanical side. The turbo install kit is finally complete and ready to ship!!!  Really nice work, I"m pretty impressed with it. He's going to offer them as a build-to-order kit in the future so maybe more 6.5Ls will be getting the same treatment as mine.

Here's the latest screens, I'll figure out how to get the icon back.

Just waiting for a ton of driving so I can tell if everything is stable. It's all built with compat now, so it should basically work on every device that is ICS is later. I need to work on the bluetooth section, so it'll update the bt info every time it's shown. A bit problematic if you had the app open, and then paired later, or changed pairing information at all after it was open. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've also done a monumental amount of code optimizations now, and reigning everything in for a full release.
