I hope to try out your project. A while back I tried to motorize a strandbeest kit www.sciplus.com/p/junior-scientist-strandbeest-kit_54202 This was before the PSoC BLE came out and I was using a PSoC 4 with a Bluetooth to UART module. I ended up taking it apart for parts but it would be nice to get running again. An integrated wireless + microcontroller is nice and simpler.
I am curious why you mounted the entire pioneer board instead of just the module. Was that just for programming without a Miniprog? Or is there something on the pioneer board that your project depends on?
These Strandbeest kits are really cool!
I used the entire baseboard for the onboard programming/debugging hardware and for the power regulation and protection circuitry. The motors proved to be quite noisy and I undersized some of the supply wiring. The LDO on the baseboard helped greatly keeping transients from upsetting the processor. I also used the RGB LED on the baseboard to provide an indication of the state of the BLE connection and the push button to wakeup/hibernate the device. The baseboard also fit nicely on the top of the chassis. For space constrained application, the compact size of the module is great. You may need to include some power regulation circuitry or power the module from its own supply separate from any motors.
I am interested to see how your project turns-out.
