    Picked up a Curtis isolated DC to DC converter. Now I just need a 90v charger and major component acquisition is over.

    Today I found out that the Project LiveWire tour is coming to a dealer very near me for September 11-13... and I haven't got my license yet

    Started digging in to learning Arduino programming in my spare time. I've been meaning to learn some coding of some sort for quite a while. Arduino looks fairly straight forward to learn, components are readily available, and inexpensive, so it seems like a pretty good place to start. My goal is to have a simple Battery Monitoring (cell level voltage, HV and LV cut off) and dashboard display/ignition ready for when the bike (hopefully) hits the road next summer.

    But as a starter project, to learn the basics I have decided to make a poor mans Motogadget M-Unit style 12v systems digitally triggered relay box control system. It won't be as sophisticated as the real thing, but I'm pretty sure I can make it work for about 1/10 the price of the m-unit. If so, it will replace the wiring harness on my ICE cafe racer.

    Anyone else an Arduino guy, in case I get stuck?

    Today I am prototyping my arduino based virtual wiring harness. A poor man's motogadget m-unit.

    Is that a sainsmart relay board? Wish they had a smaller solid state one..

    Not sainsmart, but similar generic relay shield. I think it cost about $6. I think that the best quality of arduino is the ability to learn something completely new very inexpensively. Each component costs a dollar or two, so you can try all kinds of sensors, and learn how to control just about anything, and it costs you 10 or 20 bucks. In my final command unit for my elmoto I hope to include hall sensor speedometer, amp meter, soc meter, gyro and accelerometer for safety shut off, fingerprint ignition, and LCD touchscreen control. We'll see. I might start off more simply and add functions as I go. It seems like an excellent and easily achievable way to really customize my build and make it more than just batteries and a motor slapped into a motorcycle frame.
