The controller is based on an Arduino Yun board equipped with an interface shield with two RS485 modules. The controller exchanges speed and braking signals with the trainer via this interface board that also contains local diagnostic LEDs (speed, braking, communication, and a configuration switch) and the controller receives the analogue angle handlebar from the potentiometer knotted on the handlebar axis itself.
The Arduino Yun Board portion of the WiFi node is inserted into the system LAN for bidirectional data exchange with the Web Server. The controller firmware accesses the system LAN using the Bridge protocol.
The controller firmware recognizes in the interrupt the rising edge of the speed signal and counts the pulses on a second basis; also samples the handlebars angle with 250 mS and sends speed and angle to the Web Server through the Bridge and a UDP peer-to-peer connection. Through the same channel it receives gradient information.



Returns the Focus for Makers award winner Gooble Bike.
In addition to riding on  Street View pre-defined paths simulating slopes, this new version allows you to ride anywhere on Street View choosing in real-time the crossroads by rotating the handlebar.
Also next to the usual 2D vision the new Gooble Bike allows 360° 3D viewing with a VR viewer.
