While we may think of these Bugatti’s as beautiful and very retro, but also rather slow compared with modern racing machines; in their time they were, of course, built for speed with their cutting edg...

[attachment=35432] Axle stoppers added, now it’s time to leave the epoxy to cure :) Tomorrow I will add the LED and that should be the ‘digitisation’ completed. c

Then plan: As mentioned earlier, the ‘small’ SSD compatible decoder sits above the motor with a two-wire ultraflexible connection to the sure-change mounted LED. The LED is not show fitted in the abo...

After some conversations with Paul we now have a plan to complete the digitisation of these lovely 1/32 scale Bugatti’s. Also, as Paul mentioned these models are very fragile - even the process of d...

Hi Greg, the decoder is part of a development platform rather than a commercial product. As Paul mentioned, the Scalextric F1 decoder although itself quite small, didn’t quite fit so we decided to try...

The purpose of Smart LEDs has been discussed on an earlier separate thread: https://slotracer.online/community/showt...2#pid35942 One application is to add additional IR car strobe IDs. For example ...

[attachment=34936] Here is the work-in-progress ‘Wireless Hub’ for 12 car control. The dial and LED readout are for channel selection and ID binding. All 12 cars use the same channel set once select...

One coffee break later… The modified code has been written and it’s ready for testing. For pulse repetition rates >500Hz the input signal is considered to be an ‘SSD style’ mark-to-space signal (...

@Drifter2, I’m very much enjoying your brushless motor projects - if these would benefit from some application of the smart LED hardware/firmware reconfigured to interface with standard radio control...

@dvd3500, Ha ha, thanks for the nice reminder :)  yes probably the best way to think of Smart LEDs is as a building block for developers of digital slot car systems. It extends the SSD method for car...

System testing of the Smart LEDs continues on a number of digital racetracks in a number of countries. The photo below shows Smart LEDs which can be interfaced with standard oXigen decoders in order ...
