Abstract

The emerged potentials and opportunities in the electronics field, which facilitate the creation of complex projects with innovative functionalities and high performances, while maintaining low costs, are becoming even more appreciated by designers, engineers and users. In this research work, a telemetry system was realized in order to monitor and control the principal physical and mechanical parameters of a racing vehicle by employing devices, available on the market, at very low cost. The used STM32 Nucleo development board, heart of realized telemetry system, properly programmed with the developed firmware, acquires data from sensors installed on vehicle and, by means of a WiFi module, sends them to a base station. A CAN module interfaces the engine control unit with the Nucleo board, allowing to control the engine parameters by proper sensors. All detected sensors data are both sent wirelessly and stored on a SD memory card for avoiding data losses and to implement a system robust and reliable. Experimental results show that all received data from base station are in accordance between themselves, reporting vehicle parameters for different driving and track conditions.
