Display Arduino Sensor Data in Megatunix?

Postby GeekInTraining » Sat Feb 13, 2016 9:39 pm

Hi everyone!

First time poster, long time (unregistered) reader.

Megatunix looks very easy to use and looks very configurable. I was wondering if it would be possible to send Arduino sensor data over serial to Megatunix to display and log it? How much emulation of a Megasquirt would have to be done to keep Megatunix from throwing errors? I realize I wouldn't be using any of the tuning functionality of Megatunix.

I have a 1968 pickup that is carbureted at the moment (so no Megasquirt installed) but I wanted to use the display and logging capability of Megatunix to monitor engine functions.

Do you think this idea is feasible for someone with average C programming skills?

The easiest way I see to do it if you have MS2 or 3 is send it via CAN bus via generic sensor inputs.

I didnt read your post fully, haha. You could import a log file recorded from the Arduino via serial and imported into Mega log viewer.
