So all this time, I have been connecting to my boards with arduino/bluetooth modules via the ppm receiver section of the VESC. The connection looks like this
TX: Arduino nano -->Bluetooth module -----> RX: Bluetooth module --> Arduino nano --> ppm slot
I know that a good number of people are using the UART port on the VESC, but I am really confused as to how to use it. Do I still need an arduino on the RX side? or can the connection simply be
RX: Bluetooth module --> UART port? would I still need an arduino on the PPM port?
Also, are there any specific benefits of using the UART port instead of the PPM port?
Basically I suck at electronics, so any help would be appreciated.
