I’m currently running two VESC’s in parallel (one to each rear wheel of my mountain board). Both controlled by a Y’d PPM signal. I want to log and/or monitor telemetry from at least one vesc using an arduino - while still controlling the vesc via ppm.
I see a lot of threads on the vesc UART, but I haven’t found one that walks you through the setup procedure, pinnouts, baud rate, etc. I think I’ve found the answer to most of the questions, but one thing I haven’t yet found is the correct configuration of the vesc for monitoring/logging via the UART while still controlling the vesc via ppm.
I assume I need to go to the “App configuration” tab of the BLDC tool and select “PPM AND UART”. Can someone confirm?
Also, if someone knows of a document or tutorial that can walk me through the setup and configuration to do this it would be most appreciated.
