I have a lot less time to work on my projects than I used to so here is another sort of work in progress post.
I have the new widget boards and will be assembling several soon. I am missing a part, an SMD 140 ohm resistor for the power LED. It’s ordered.
Along with that order is all the parts I will need to intercept the DCC stream with my control widget and then either process it internally (moving servos, motor controllers, outputs, etc) or send it out to other Xbee wireless nodes. Something fun to do anyhow.
I should have a MRC Prodigy Express DCC controller soon. I will put it to use with my N scale trains but the main focus will be intercepting the DCC signals and sending them out via wireless XBee as mentioned above.
Also, if you notice, there is the Raspberry Pi 2 there beside Mr Foreman, I’ve got that up and running, very nice board. Really sweet.
Hmm. Also making progress on the CNC styrene cutting, I have large parts of the depot finished, I’ll post some pics soon.
