As a midnight project, I am computerizing my cars. Full blown control, with complete scripts to execute commands in order. The goal will be to control all six MHz channels at once through one interface.

I have seen two or three different implementations, but not to the extent that I am looking for. (Atari joystick, qbasic parallel, etc)

The GUI will run on a PC or a handheld (iPAQ). It will also contain a database to callup different cars owners have (carmfg, carmake, carmodel, carmotor, cargear, cartires, carbattery, carmods, etc)

The first round of hardware will be a single MHz channel connection to the parallel port. Then adding the computerized 6 MHz channels. Then look into serial/usb interface. All on a clones. Then I'll crack open my bitcharg. If all goes well, I could productized it. (will need testers).

Sounds cool. So You would be able to control the car from a handheld and it would controll multiple freqs. I'ld be willing to test.

Done with my breadboard layout, sorry I don't have my digital camera with me, pictures later.

Since I'm running Win XP, I came across an issue I didn't know about, and that is MS's NT kernel protects against users accessing the IO ports. Thanks to some shareware out there, I've gotten pass the problem (win95, 98, ME, don't have the problem).

Got some of the database and GUI going also...looks like a Microsizers remote control.


UPS just dropped off my new HI HUMMER MYSTERY (BLACK). I thought I ordered the 49MHz, but go the 27MHz....hmmmm

This is the coolest part. Just for testing, I added 12 different timeslots to program, each with their own time delay. The most awesome thing to see, once you programmed in a sequence.
so far I have not found a need for more than 12.

noxorc
01-12-2003, 10:15 PM
The only useful part of the software without the hardware would be the database. One could keep track of their cars and mods.

The hardware taps into the controllers switches. Each MFG I've come across makes them a little different. Either a pull-up to +5 or a drain to gnd.

I figured the user would have to know their way around a multimeter to set up the controller.

As time moves on, I don't see myself implementing a multi-MHz box. I invision creating single (different MHz) boxes, one for each available signal and running them on different computers. The way I see it, two or more (up to six) friends, each having a laptop connected to their car. Then, each individual can control and drive their car around the track.

here is an idea. introduce pulsing buttons exparament with different pulses and you could control speed in forword and reverse you coul even control turning slowly. Just a thought why don't you give it a try and see how it works out?

noxorc
01-17-2003, 08:15 AM
With my "AutoDrive" page in my software, I can control time and rate pulses to the controller. Since the computer is SO much faster than a human, it's one pulse is on the order of Millisec. Way too fast for even the motor to ramp up. One needs aleast 1sec of constant signal to get the car to move. The granularity in the software gives you this capability.

My prices seem reasonable to me and they stand as is. I have done the work and laid it out for you, if you care to make your own then you can do so. $10 for parts and $10 to put it together for you is fair in my eyes. If you have your own car, then you already understand pricing on the cars. Add them together and total cost is about the $30 as you say, but this is just for the hardware.
As for the software, the key that makes it work, my creativity for this piece is easily worth the $20 I am asking. Or you can spend the time and effort to write your own. It's your choice!

ok i have an idea being a programmer myself (sort of) i can understand how long it takes to trubble shoot problems in some code. my suggestion to you is to make this a time trial something like 20 runs or 30 days what ever comes first then the program just displays a nag screen. then they have to pay for an unlock code. you should show the circuit schimatics for all to see then they can make it themselves and if they want they can pay you for you to make it for them. just a suggestion of how i think i would think do it.

all the hardware layout (circuit schimatic) can be found on page one. There isn't more I can do in that area, except to sell them one that I made.

I have thought about the 'shareware' version. In fact, I made one, but it is too big for my ISP to hold for me (~10MB).

it is too big for my ISP to hold for me (~10MB).

Is this with full winzip compression? if not try it and if it is smaller there you go. I think mine is 10Mb also :(

oh ya and can you control with up down left right keys? if you want a real challenge try to hook it up to work with the joystick pulsing at different rates depending how far the joystick goes. This is going to be a pretty big file.

what are you programming it in?

noxorc
01-21-2003, 07:03 AM
my man, you must look at the screen shots. The auto driving page already supports pulsing. Allowing the operator to set the interval rate of the pulse.

Yes, you can click in all 6-directions. Notice the small square boxes on the left side controller pad on the main page.
Forward, Forward-right, Forward-Left, Stop is in the middle, and the same for Reverse.

Yes, with winzip it's still ~10mb.


Those of you who want to test.
How do you want to do that? Have you made any hardware yourself?
Are you just interested in playing with the software?
What O/S are you running?

dabigpig
01-21-2003, 12:46 PM
Yes, you can click in all 6-directions. Notice the small square boxes on the left side controller pad on the main page.

you missunderstood the point i was trying to make. i know that clicking them makes it move but clicking on them is slow and doesn't allow that good of control of your car so what you should do is also be able to control it with the arrow keys on the keyboard so it is faster and more controlable.

my man, you must look at the screen shots. The auto driving page already supports pulsing. Allowing the operator to set the interval rate of the pulse.

again i think that i have been misunderstood. have it so you can control it with your computers joystick so that the farther you push on the joystick the less it pulses and the faster the car goes, the same would go with stearing.

noxorc
01-21-2003, 01:02 PM
yea, ok, I understand you points.

On the joystick idea (hardware stick), I was thinking that a joystick could be used to feedback the time/distance a car travels and record those coordance in a script. Then just play back the script and the car would repeat it's path. (easier for the user)

GUI-based.... a joystick picture (topview) as you click and hold the joystick and drag it to the top of the screen, the car goes in that direction. The more you drag (bend) the stick to the North position, the more pulse bandwidth you give it.


I can add keyboard (arrow) keys, future release.

Most of the app was/is written in VB6 with some side help from VC++.


I thinking, I do need some software testers to build up my scripting library of car routines. (time consuming)

Back on the thread of using a computer's joystick. I'm not interested in that interface. I will add keyboard direction keys (soon).

I have added the loading and saving of scripts from app's directory. (nice feature, gives the ability to quickly load and save routines, I have scripts like figure8, zigzag, squareright, squareleft)

Added a 'menu bar' with same options as picture clicks.

Added 'Registration' so I can give out shareware versions.


News: Opened my 'Microsizer Controller' and it's 100%

Here's a picture of my Microsizers cable out. I didn't want to cut the plastic, so I just let it dangle.....

Also making the 'NoxBox' in a smaller container.. The car sits nicely on top.

On my laptop, the power cord is right next to the parallel port, so I can't plug the NoxBox directly into it. Having a long parallel cable is nice, but doesn't fit in my Car Case to well. So I put together this small extention.

What would be the dificulty level in your adding a USB feature as some new notebooks (Toshiba for example) dont have all the parallel ports, and USB would just be more effitient.

My Sony has proper ports and stuff, I just figured USB would be a great added feature

noxorc
02-03-2003, 03:49 PM
To all interested, I need to work on documentation.
It's easy to use, it just should come with it.

Adding the USB interface would give the advantage when porting to Windows CE for the PocketPC world. Still on my wish list.

I just bought a ZipZap and like a Dodge Ram Clone, the Forward and reverse are backwards from Microsizers. BUT, as my software handles each car individually, not a problem. I allow the software to dynamicly map the pins per car.

Someone asked how does it work?
The question is, how much details do you want/need?

The software drives the computers parallel port connected to a NoxBox. The NoxBox is connected to a specific MHz Remote controller. Selecting a 'Forward' direction through the software interface, asserts a line to the NoxBox which drives the remote controller to press 'Forward'. Same for each direction available.

Can you please post a picture of the connections inside your MicroSizers controller? The schematics just show up, down, left, and right, but where on the controller's circuit board are those?

Also, why do you need a noxbox? Is it possible to connect your controller directly to your parallel port?

noxorc
02-07-2003, 06:31 AM
I'll have to take that picture your looking for, as I dont have one.
The solder points are just on one side of each switch.

The first question is actually related to the second.

The Standard parallel port (and think of the number of Computer MFG's out there) implemented does not have enough pull-up or pull-down to drive (and again, think of the number of Remote Controllers MFG's out there, ie clones) the remote control.

In other words, the parallel port toggles logical 1's and 0's. Which do not always translate to a +5volts and a Ground.

The CCRC_NoxBox can take that logical signal and translate it into a full pull-down to ground. (also tying a common ground between the computer and the remote control)

So, yes there might be A computer out there, that can drive A remote control. But that's a lottery.

Thanks. That answer was exactly what I was looking for. I should be building one either this weekend or next weekend.

ugh. I still don't know which transistor to use though. I have a BitChar-G. PNP or NPN? I read through this thread a couple of times, but I don't remember seeing that it uses the same one as yours. Which transistor did you use for your MicroSizers one? I'm pretty sure it would be the same as that one.

exactly.

The program never boots up for me. Once I click on the .exe file, I get an error.

Here's what it says:

What version Operating System are you trying this on?

Win95
Win98
WinMe
Win2K
WinXP

I have tested an install on each virgin O/S without any problems.

So, for me to help you, I need an exact breakdown of the steps you take to install and run and where along that path the error occurs.


Here are some top level questions... (Fill in more if you have them)

Did the Zipfile, uncompress without errors?

When you 'double clicked' on the 'setup.exe' program from the zipfile, did the program start up?

Did the Install process say it was complete ? any errors?

Did you install into the 'default' directory?

Was an Icon "CCRC_Nox" placed off of the 'Start', 'Programs' menu?

Did you read the 'Readme' file in the installed directory?

Did you run 'UserPort.exe', if you are running Win2k or WinXP?
(if so, did you reboot ?)

What happens in detail when you select 'CCRC_Nox' from the 'Start', 'Programs' menu?


I can not help anyone who does not try and help me. details matter.

Oh I'm sorry...

OS: Windows XP Professional

1st installation

1. Unzipped ccrcnox101.zip into a directory on my desktop. No problems.
2. Ran setup.exe
3. Installed it into user defined directory (C:\My Utilities\CCRC_Nox\)
4. Ran UserPort.exe (error: Driver does not exist: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\UserPort.sys)
5. I manually copied and pasted UserPort.sys into the windows system directory.
5. Ran ccrc_nox by clicking on the shortcut in the start menu (error as explained previously)
6. Ran ccrc_nox.exe (same error)

2nd installation

1. Unzipped ccrcnox101.zip into a directory on my desktop. No problems.
2. Ran setup.exe
3. Installed it into default directory(C:\Program Files\CCRC_Nox\)
4. Ran UserPort.exe (same error there)
5. Tried to run ccrc_nox.exe. (Same error)

I hope that clears things up. My cousin and I are both using the same zip file. Perhaps the file we downloaded was currupted. Can you link me to another one?

Also, I have finished building my NoxBox. However, I'm not sure how to connect the stuff in my controller. I noticed that each button on the controller has 4 leads. Which lead do I connect it to?

Thanks for all your help. Much appreciated.

What controller are you using? (Motorworks, Microsizers, etc)
Need to know, to explain the right pinouts.


As to the software, The problem lies with running UserPort.exe
We must have success here for the software to talk out the parallel port.

You said:
4. Ran UserPort.exe (error: Driver does not exist: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\UserPort.sys)
5. I manually copied and pasted UserPort.sys into the windows system directory.


1. Either by the software installation or by manual copy, make sure \windows\system32\drivers\UserPort.sys exists in the directory.
3. Run UserPort.exe
4. Make sure all address ranges are selected from the 'Left' to the 'Right'.
5. Click on 'Start', it should say "Driver Already Started!"
6. if not already started, exit reboot.... goto step 3

Post results.

The file is found in the install program.

It is copied automaticly to the \windows\system32\drivers\ subdirectory.

Did you do a 'search for file' on your computer?


If you still do not find it... let me know, and I'll post one on my website.

Ah I finally figured it out. I think you mentioned this somewhere... Right click on the program, go to properties, then go to the compatibility tab. Run it in Windows 98 mode.

Also, noxorc, in your "About CCRC_Nox," you spelled unauthorized incorrectly. :p

Some one that can read Japanese needs to go to this site!
They have some mods not posted here along with this one...
Nox... I still believe yours is more practical. Check it out-->PC controller in Japanese! (http://www.age.jp/~ex2/bit/a_custom.html)

Yup, Japanese, yup still can't read it.

Same idea, have the computer control the bit.
Except they have this big clunky PICNIC controller inbetween.

There are endless designs that can take place in this area.

I have rewritten some of my app to use a new DLL I wrote.

This eliminates the need to run the software on XP in compatability mode. Also the need for the "UserPort" app.


it's completely selfcontained now.

Also working on a downloadable version, for those that want to just buy the software and make your own boxes.

Yeah, sometimes I think I might of bitten off more than I can chew.:) I have run into an issue when trying to do propo speed and steering at the same time, some germans have told me that there is issues with timings and the "coding" of the signals in the TX2/RX2 chipsets. But I haven't had a change to check it out yet since my life is still in boxes from the move to a new house on the weekend.:mad:

Oh, well............ With enough people hassling my I will prolly get off my arse soon and do somethink.........

I'd give you a link to the forums at ausmicro.com where this has been detailed but the site is down at tha 'mo........ arghhhh!

Great work man! Any chance you could send me the program or upload it again? I can make the harware but not the software. None of the links work.

Once again, is there anybody who has a copy of Nox's software which he is no longer selling? I have already bought the parts for it, but I need the software, as I know next to nothing about this type of programming.
