What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

ArduECU is the world’s first rugged, IP69K waterproof, Arduino compatible, electronic control unit (ECU) to be used for harsh environments.

The circuitry inside of the IP69K waterproof rated enclosure is a self-contained Arduino-based Atmega 328P microcontroller platform that also has additional capability, durability and water resistance built-in, right out of the box. From controlling motors, servos, interfacing sensors, high voltage digital inputs and outputs, ArduECU can do all that your normal Arduino can do plus more! 

Now you can create Arduino based projects that are all so familiar, but finally rugged, waterproof and robust.

  • Ruggedized IP69K rated housing for use in harsh, moist environments
  • Compatible with Standard Arduino IDE and the open-source initiative
  • Built-in CAN option for vehicle and machine control applications (i.e, controlling your car, creating open-source machine controllers, viewing diagnostic information, creating an IoT-based car, etc)
  • Ability to connect to vehicle or machine's controller area network to view or control vehicle data
  • "Daisy chain" ArduECU’s together via CAN network to create expandable, remote I/O modules that expand your project only when you need it to
  • Adaptable to future expansion modules (shields) such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz radio, GPS, Cellular Modem, data logging, CAN J1939, current feedback sensing, analog output and accelerometers  or interface your own modules
  • Accepts digital and analog inputs (5-24VDC) 
  •  Provides digital and PWM outputs (0.1V to 24VDC)
  • Integrated MOSFETs and power protection on digital output pins to allow for high current capability up to 10 Amps* per pin
  • Stream data to internet, smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular or RF expansion modules (Wi-fi for Kickstarter, others coming thereafter) 
  • Control ArduECU remotely via internet connected smartphone, tablet or PC
  • Create IoT (Internet of Things) projects with ease and use a cloud dashboard for viewing or using your data (ex. Cayenne-mydevices, Ubidots, Thingspeak, etc.) 
  • Available Uno breakout variant to convert your existing Arduino Uno or Arduino Uno Wi-Fi into an ArduECU with on-board prototyping area for your own creations and circuits. 
  • Ability to add a small battery internally (ex, 9V or 3S LiPo), to create a fully autonomous control system with built-in power.
  • Make a waterproof battery Pack with an MK1U kit that interfaces to your other ECU's.

*Requires external fusing. Max recommended current per ECU is 30A.

 The video below shows a brief overview of an ArduECU MK1B (Basic) Controlling a motor and LED light strip directly via PWM.

Built Tough

ArduECU is built tough for all of your rugged requirements. And yes, it can take a small blow from a hammer without any noticeable damage.

The sky's the limit on what ArduECU can do for you. Whether it be machine control, industrial automation, rugged outdoor use, or any of the following examples below - ArduECU has you covered in some way! Your only limitation is your own creativity.

ArduECU Application Examples
ArduECU Application Examples

 

Do you have a cool new concept for a product you've always thought of developing but you didn't have a low-cost controller to do it? Well now you can make that concept come true with ArduECU. Pledge for a unit today and let your imagination run wild with your new concept!

Have a prototype machine, lab setup or test apparatus that needs some controls? Use the ArduECU to turn on and off lights, control motors, or use use analog inputs like potentiometers to control a process automatically.

Have a marina and want to monitor your expensive yachts going in and out? Now you can! Use an internet connected ArduECU to create a mobile control system that alerts you, texts you, or emails you when a boat may be missing, moving unexpectedly, or rocking too heavily during a storm. Keep tabs on your boat at all times! (Would require additional GPS module and accelerometer connected either externally via wire harness or via on-board headers).

Have a vehicle fleet you need to keep track of? Need an open-source platform to manage your valuable assets? With ArduECU, you could create a fleet tracking unit to monitor where your vehicles are, how fast they are travelling, or even to keep tabs on when they are due for their next service. Connect to your vehicles control system via ArduECU to keep tabs on critical vehicle data like throttle position, temperature or RPM's. Connect to an internet dashboard to view your fleet's information remotely from any internet connected phone, tablet or computer. 

Heck, maybe if you, the backers, back enough, we might reach a special stretch goal to enable some sort of "cool" custom ArduECU IoT dashboard for this type of application? Just saying.

Waterproof Housing

ArduECU's housing is based off of the Cinch ME enclosure. It is a proven enclosure for use with off-road machines, vehicles, and agricultural equipment to name a few. We've chosen this ECU enclosure since it is readily available,  rather cost effective and readily available if you ever need a replacement.

ArduECU Housing Dimensions

 Mating Connector (Adapter Harness Kit)

All of ArduECU's hard-wired connections for Inputs, outputs, serial communication, CAN and power are connected via the Cinch ME mating connector which plugs into the ArduECU. The mating connector is what you'd use to interface your ArduECU to your system which includes external sensors, coils, motors, valves, potentiometers, switches or a CAN network for example.

ArduECU with Harness Installed

ArduECU's mating connector will come as a kit which includes pre-terminated Cinch pins that you can populate into your mating connector as desired. For Serial communication, you can solder on a DB-9 connector to the Tx and Rx lines of the mating connector to connect to an external Serial to USB converter.

 Housing Opener Tool

Since ArduECU uses a water-tight enclosure, getting it open can be tricky of you do not have the proper tool. We have come up with a low cost, 3D printable housing opener tool, to easily open and close your housing as needed to configure settings, jumpers, add components or for whatever reason that may require you to open it.

CAD and .STL files for 3D printing the housing opener tool with be available as a free download on our website. Also, every ECU sold will come shipped with your first housing opener tool.

 ArduECU comes in three models. All which have different levels of functionality and purpose. Review the breakdown of models below.

 The Uno breakout model of ArduECU is a custom made, PCB breakout board designed to fit inside our Cinch housing. It has the footprint for an Arduino Uno microcontroller and can also accept the Arduino Uno Wi-fi variant (which we supply with our MK1U Developers kit).

This version allows you to convert any existing Arduino into a waterproof, rugged Arduino that can be used for rugged applications. It is a lower cost alternative to those who may not want to purchase the full blown ArduECU controller with custom circuit board assembly.

ArduECU MK1U Model shown Inside Housing
ArduECU MK1U Model shown Inside Housing

Want Wi-Fi? Easy by using Arduino Uno Wi-Fi with built-in ESP8266 Wi-Fi chip. Now your basic IoT projects can be placed outdoors or in rugged locations!

Want a totally autonomous temporary, mobile ECU? There is even room to place a small battery pack (9V, or rechargeable Li-po) inside of the housing to create a wireless, and totally remote ECU for your application! Supply power right from within your ECU.

Another reason to buy the MK1U is that you could make a waterproof Arduino battery pack. Place an array of batteries inside the MK1U kit, and interface it to another MK1U with Arduino built in, for a much longer operation time!

Want to create a garden monitoring system, or outdoor sensor that you want to trigger without wires? Use the above scenario to create a fully wireless control option! How about an waterproof RFID based unit to open and close a door?

Prototyping Area on Bottom of Breakout PCBA

The built-in prototype area allows for capability to add in your own jumpers, wires, components, MOSFETS, relays or other Arduino based shields (such as GPS, Bluetooth, SD Card, accelerometer, RFID etc.) to make a fully custom ECU for your project!

Geared towards:

  • Basic users, makers and hackers who want a lower cost option or already have an Arduino Uno they want to make robust and waterproof.

 

ArduECU MK1B is our custom, ground-up controller based on the ATMega 328P. It is a fully re-designed ECU controller based upon the Arduino Uno microcontroller. For those designers who want more functionality than that of a basic Arduino Uno but don't want CAN communications enabled, should consider purchasing this version.

ArduECU MK1B Prototype Shown
ArduECU MK1B Prototype Shown
  • Nine built-in MOSFET current drivers on all connected output pins.
  • Drive up to 10 Amps per output with no additional circuitry*
  • GPIO configured internally via Jumper settings (that is select whether you need as a robust digital input versus digital output)
  • All functions of existing Arduino Uno will work out of the box with the MK1B.
  • If you would like to use the standard pins of the ATmega 328 with existing libraries or functions of a standard Arduino, you can easily bypass the rugged Input/Output circuitry to use it as a standard pin.**

*Requires external fuse which is not currently included.

**Bypassing the protection circuitry will only allow you to source standard amount of current as capable by normal Arduino.

**Has CAN circuitry built-in, but it is not enabled as with the MK1C version-- which is the CAN-ready option.

Geared Towards:

  • More advanced makers and hackers. Control engineers or test engineers.

 ArduECU MK1C is our custom, ground-up controller with a built-in CAN controller which is enabled out-of-the-box. It is a fully re-designed ECU controller based upon the ATmega 328P with additional capability. It has all of the specs of the MK1B except that it has the CAN controller enabled for additional CAN-based applications such as:

  • Vehicle controls development 
  • Car hacking and control
  • Monitoring
  • Automation
  • Machine controller applications

  • Some features to note:
  • Built-in SAE CAN J1939 option for vehicle and machine control applications (i.e, controlling your car, creating open-source machine controllers,viewing diagnostic information, creating an IoT-based car, etc) 
  • Ability to connect to vehicle or machine's CANbus to view or control vehicle data
  •  "Daisy chain" ArduECU’s together via CAN network to create expandable, remote I/O modules that expand your project only when you need it to

Geared Towards: Designers, control engineers and car hackers who want more functionality than that of the basic MK1U or MK1B and want to add in a little CANbus!

Standard Programming via Arduino IDE

Out of the box, ArduECU programming is achieved serially via the Tx and Rx lines of the Cinch header. Therefore, the user would need a USB to Serial Converter in order to program the unit or to transmit serial data. Since we wanted to keep the user from needing to remove the board from the housing to program it, we did not include a USB connector on the board itself (For MK1B and MK1C variants only, as MK1U Uno Breakout verison still has internal USB or Over-The-Air programming).   

By default, ArduECU is coded using the industry standard and ever popular, Arduino Wiring Language; so using it will be a breeze if you know the standard Arduino Wiring language. Use one of the hundreds of libraries or online examples to get started programming your ECU for your own project. 

All ArduECU functions are compatible with standard Arduino functions and libraries as normal-- The only difference being the fact that you need to understand the correlation between Cinch Pins to Arduino Pins on the hardware side (but don't worry, we will provide sample code, examples and documentation to get you started).

 ArduECU is versatile in that it can also be coded and programmed using alternative methods:

  • Code in the C language via Eclipse IDE 
  • Support for CoDeSys V2.3 and V3 per IEC 611321-3 to code in Ladder Logic, Structured Text, Sequential Flow Control, etc. 
  • OTA (over-the-air) programming capability for all ArduECU versions via ESP8266 Wi-Fi shield (if installed)

 ArduECU is the World's First Arduino that is compatible with Codesys and the IEC 61131-3 standard. Now you can program your ArduECU just like you would with industrial, professional grade automotive and off-road ECU's; such as the examples you'd find here.

Programming In CoDeSys

ArduECU CoDeSys Example
ArduECU CoDeSys Example

Another method of programming can be performed via the CANbus directly; although this option would require a special non-Arduino based bootloader. In this way, you could program your ArduECU from anywhere where you would normally connect to your vehicle or machines CAN network; as long as ArduECU is connected to your CAN network.  

Now for the pricing and rewards structure. It is broken out based upon the three models; MK1U, MK1B and MK1C. We also have a developers kit for those who want a package deal with accessories to get started and aid in development.

Risks and challenges

There are always challenges in manufacturing and delivering any hardware product at scale. Mass manufacturing isn't the same as prototype development and we want the product to be reliable and ensure that the product can be manufactured efficiently at larger volumes.

Fortunately, because we are utilizing proven housings and enclosures to help package the ArduECU, it does not require the same tooling expenses and long lead times that products with injection molded plastics typically require. This significantly decreases our fixed costs and delivery timeline.

Of course, there are still risks associated with producing ArduECU. Unexpected changes in component lead times, availability, testing results and cost are examples of factors outside our direct control that could affect our delivery timeline, but we are working hard to alleviate those risks and plan to be transparent throughout the delivery process.

The other risk with this and any other project that involves physical delivery comes with shipping. There are a number of unforeseen circumstances that can cause problems during the actual physical shipping.We will also make sure to have methods/resources in place to overcome any difficulties regarding shipping of your reward.
