using level indicator to read battery charge

Post by belart on Thu May 05, 2016 11:47 pm

Hi,
I am using Arduino Uno, HC-06 Bluetooth module & RoboRemo App to control speed of 5 VDC motor and to read the battery level.
I used the source code and wiring from your site to control the motor, but being a noob, I'm at a loss as to how to do the battery level indicator code and wiring.
I am using a voltage divider with an analog input to pin A0.  

I have two sample programs below, one to identify the BT module and the other for the voltage info. I don't know how to combine them together, and along with the motor speed code : I appreciate your help

#define bluetooth Serial
char cmd[100];
int cmdIndex;

void exeCmd() {
//if(strcmp(cmd, "some cmd")==0) doSomething();
}

void setup() {
delay(500); // wait for HC-06 to start
Serial.begin(9600);    
bluetooth.begin(9600); // HC-06 default baud is 115200
cmdIndex = 0;
}

void loop() {

if(bluetooth.available()) {    
  char c = (char)bluetooth.read();
 
  if(c=='\n') {
    cmd[cmdIndex] = 0;
    exeCmd();  // execute the command
    cmdIndex = 0; // reset the cmdIndex
  } else {      
    cmd[cmdIndex] = c;
    if(cmdIndex<99) cmdIndex++;
  }  
}
 // String st= ("BatteryPcnt" + "\n");
  bluetooth.print("BatteryPcnt  0  \n");
  delay(1000);

}

Code for voltage divider below:

#include <SPI.h>
#include <MySensor.h>

int BATTERY_SENSE_PIN = A0; // select the input pin for the battery sense point

MySensor gw;
unsigned long SLEEP_TIME = 900000; // sleep time between reads (seconds * 1000 milliseconds)
int BatteryPcnt = 0;

void setup()
{
// use the 1.1 V internal reference
#if defined(__AVR_ATmega2560__)
analogReference(INTERNAL1V1);
#else
analogReference(INTERNAL);
#endif
gw.begin();

// Send the sketch version information to the gateway and Controller
gw.sendSketchInfo("Battery Meter", "1.0");
}

void loop()
{
// get the battery Voltage
int sensorValue = analogRead(BATTERY_SENSE_PIN);
#ifdef DEBUG
Serial.println(sensorValue);
#endif

// 1M, 470K divider across battery and using internal ADC ref of 1.1V
// Sense point is bypassed with 0.1 uF cap to reduce noise at that point
// ((1e6+470e3)/470e3)*1.1 = Vmax = 3.44 Volts
// 3.44/1023 = Volts per bit = 0.003363075
float batteryV = sensorValue * 0.003363075;
int batteryPcnt = sensorValue / 10;

#ifdef DEBUG
Serial.print("Battery Voltage: ");
Serial.print(batteryV);
Serial.println(" V");

Serial.print("Battery percent: ");
Serial.print(batteryPcnt);
Serial.println(" %");
#endif

if (oldBatteryPcnt != batteryPcnt) {
// Power up radio after sleep
gw.sendBatteryLevel(batteryPcnt);
oldBatteryPcnt = batteryPcnt;
}
gw.sleep(SLEEP_TIME);
}

Hi,
Here is the code:
Code:

char cmd[100];
int cmdIndex;
long t1=0, t2=0;

void exeCmd() {
  //if(strcmp(cmd, "some cmd")==0) doSomething();
}

void setup() {
  delay(500); // wait for HC-06 to start
  Serial.begin(9600); // HC-06 default baud is 115200
  cmdIndex = 0;

  // use the 1.1 V internal reference
  #if defined(__AVR_ATmega2560__)
  analogReference(INTERNAL1V1);
  #else
  analogReference(INTERNAL);
  #endif
 
}

void loop() {

  if(Serial.available()) {   
    char c = (char)Serial.read();
 
    if(c=='\n') {
      cmd[cmdIndex] = 0;
      exeCmd();  // execute the command
      cmdIndex = 0; // reset the cmdIndex
    } else {     
      cmd[cmdIndex] = c;
      if(cmdIndex<99) cmdIndex++;
    } 
  }

  t2 = millis();

  if(t2 > t1+100) { // every 100 ms
    t1 = t2;
    int adcValue = analogRead(0);
    float voltage = adcValue * 0.003363075;
    int batPcnt = adcValue/10;
    Serial.print((String)"BatteryPcnt " + batPcnt + "\n");
    // level indicator id is "BatteryPcnt", case sensitive, without ""
  }
 
  // DO NOT ADD DELAY HERE
  // (RECEIVING COMMANDS WILL STOP WORKING)

}
