PostCycla

Is a DIY project to create a smart bike trainer with "virtal ride" capability, using a Raspberry Pi and Node.js for the server and a Web UI on the client side. A STM32 MCU Nucleo with a CNY 70 sensor and a servo will get data from the trainer and set the resistance.

For testing and development mockup implementations of all sensors and actuators are available at: Running the tests

To set up sensors and actuators you can use any microcontroller to read/control sensors and a servo. Every component was encapsulated to allow easy swapping of sensors, controllers or provide another way of sensing distance/speed and setting resistance on the trainer.

Future modules/components will include a way to directly read data and set resistance of Ant+ FE-C capable trainers.

Getting Started

On Windows

On Raspberry

Prerequisites

Hardware

  • Raspberry Pi 3
  • STM32 MCU Nucleo/Arduino Nano
  • CNY 70
  • Servo
  • Ant+ USB Stick
  • Ant+ heart rate monitor chest strap
  • Ant+ candence sensor

(the current implementation uses this hardware setup)

Software

  • NodeJs 4.8.2 (on Raspberry Pi)

Node Modules:

A gpx file for testing/running the software. The gpx file needs to contain elevation data!     

Installing

USB

sudo apt-get install build-essential libudev-dev
npm install usb

Serial port

sudo npm install serialport --unsafe-perm --build-from-source

XML Parser

npm install xml2js

Web sockets

npm install --save socket.io

Express

npm install express --save

Running the tests

To test PostCycla itself you can set the "UseMockups" and "DebugOutput" flags in the "settings.json" file and start the program.

...
	"UseMockups": true,    
	"DebugOutput": false,
...

In the "test" folder you will find test for the calculation and hardware components.

For hardware testing you can also use the hardware mockup code.

Calculations

node test/calculations/PowerCalc_test.js

Tests the power calculation with a fixed speed and changing slope.

  • Should provide a console output of the used speed, slope and calculated power data
node test/calculations/TrackParsingAndSmoothing_test.js

Tests the gpx file parser and smoothing algorithm

  • Needs the original example/testing track gpx file (track segment length is fixed for testing)
  • Should result in a console output either showing an error or the new smoothed segments

Hardware

node test/hardware/testConnections.js

Tests the Serial, USB and Ant+ hardware and connection to it

  • Will try to find USB devices and the Ant+ Stick
  • Will also try to connect to the SerialPort (ttyACM0 or COM3)
  • Should return a console ouput regarding Testname, Success, and data/info about success or failure
node test/hardware/testAntplusSensors.js

This test will try and get data from an Ant+ stick with connected heart rate and cadence sensors

  • Should return a console ouput with the heart rate and cadence (if sensors are connected to the Ant+ stick)
node test/hardware/testSTMSensor.js

This test will try and get data from the STM32/Arduino and check the output

  • Should return a console ouput with the data from the module

For hardware testing you can also use the hardware mockup code.

Running the program

Setup

To set up the hardware use the code in the "HW_Controller" folder.

STM32 MCU Nucleo

Contains the code currently used in the project

HW_Controller/mbed/main.cpp

Arduino HW mockup

Contains code for testing the hardware communication modules

HW_Controller/PostCyclaHardwareMock/PostCyclaHardwareMock.ino

Without hardware

Change the "settings.json" file:

...
	"UseMockups": true,    
	"DebugOutput": true,
...

If these settings are used, you can run PostCycla without any hardware attached and get additional information in the Node.js console.

How to start

sudo node postcycla.js

The web UI can be accessed via the address shown in the nodejs output. Deault:

http://localhost:8125/

Simply open this address in your web browser to see the client UI.

  • For testing an "Example_Testing Track.gpx" was added in the "tracks" folder.
  • The new GPX will be generated in the "tracks" folder (will not be available in the UI)

Note to finish/close the new GPX file you need to "STOP" the ride (even when you reached the end)
