Waiting for the reception of the componants ordered for starting to bluid my own autosteer, I read all this very instructive topic. I have a few questions about the design of the diffrents boards.
It seems that on all boards design I saw, the ADS1115 is implemented on the board. On the wiki it is advised "If you use the ADS analog to digital converter try to place it as close to the wheel angle sensor as possible.". I suppose that most of the users will install the board in a box inside or on the top of the tractor cab : not "as close at possible of the wheel".
It mean that finaly it's not a big problem if the installation does't complie with the wiki advise ?
I see that on the Brian design that there is a 5V regulator dedicated to the WAS : is there a specific technical reason to supply it with a dedicated regulator and not put it on the same 5V regulator than the orther componants ? Perhaps it's explain in the topic and I miss it ?
At the end of my reading I was a little bit lost between all the boards designs : lots of boards designs realised and with a PIN assignement different from "autosteer_switch_full" or "autosteer_button_full" schematics from the wiki, meaning that it need a differents arduino code than those provided in "Module" folder from AOG.
So I have some difficulty to identify if there is a design that is compatible with the componant that I order to directly buy a PCB and use it for my prototype. And if any design are directly corresponding, witch one is the closest to my need to use it as a baseline to modify it for making my own design.
For the Brian design, I supposed that the most up to date is the one on GitHub and the needed associate Arduino code is the one provided in the package ? I open the schamic : it doesn't include the BNO (I understood that Brian use the Brick 2.0) and the MMA is supply with 3.3V (the one I order is supply with 5V).
For the ropecope design, I am a little bit lost witch one is the most up to date between the differents version and witch arduino code use with ?
Part I already order : Adafruit BNO055, Adafruit MMA845, Adafruit ADS1115 and a voltage regulator card based on LM2596 for prototyping on breadboard.
For the motor controler, I hesitated between the cytron and IBT 2, but with I read here that the IBT 2 is more suitable I one day I want to make an hydrolic steering.
I hope thaht in a few month I could post a good result in the new "AGOpenGps stories"
