Arduino, Command Gateway & Prepar3D 2.4

You may find this video interesting. It’s a demonstration of Arduino, Command Gateway and Prepar3D working together.

In the breadboards we have two ICM7218 chips. Each one is controlling one array of 7-segment displays. Each chip is controlled in turn by one Arduino board. The sketches are running a very simple program that uses oacsp.h library in order to communicate with Command Gateway. The program just registers a listener for the N1 of engine 1, in case of Arduino Uno on the top, and N1 of engine 2 in case of Arduino Mega on the right.

The purpose of this experiment is to test the behavior and performance of Command Gateway under multiple connections.

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Happy flying!

New section for Arduino Libraries and more

You may find a new section in the software page corresponding to Arduino libraries. In this new section you may find documentation on the different libraries used by Open Airbus Cockpit to implement the logic in the Arduino boards.

This section includes a download links to… the new and awesome Open Airbus Cockpit Arduino Libraries installer! Yes, my friend. Now using OAC Arduino libraries is easier than ever. You only have to download the installer and execute to have all the libraries available in your system. No more manual installation.

Unfortunately, I had not time enough to upload documentation for all the libraries that comprise the kit. Please be patient as I complete all the sections.

I hope you find this new section and the new installer useful.

Happy flying!
