Hi all, looking at taking on a new project, I have no experience of using arduino’s or electronics, but I am a computer programmer by trade. Im looking to build an automotive data logger for use on my Dragster. My thought is that I can use the seeeduino stalker to simply capture the sensor data and write it to sd storage as a comma seperated file. Ideally I would like to capture data as often as possible, and realistically I am aiming for 100 hz for between 5 and 8 sensors, which dependant on data length should be possible? I am aiming to record 1 or 2 K type thermocouple exhaust temperature sensors (max 2000 degree’s F), engine RPM (using coil, max 7500 RPM), propshaft RPM (using hall effect sensor - max 7500 rpm), an on / off reading from my transbrake switch and possibly a throttle position sensor (yet to be determined).
Does this seem possible? Can anyone give me any hints / tips for recording such data? Data could be saved as a raw value and converted by software afterwards where needed. Many thanks in advance. Dave
