The AEK-CON-BSPOTV1 board is principally a connector board for the Blind-spot Educational Tool actuators and loads. It conveniently arranges all the wire connections from the AEKD-BLINDSPOTA1 into a single 8-pin connector, and has another connector for the EV-VN7050AS board that drives a DC geared motor for the conveyor belt. Finally, the board simplifies power connection between the boards and signal transfer from the LED driving board AEK-LED-21DISM1 and the Hall sensor.
The Blind-spot detection and warning educational tool is designed help developers to become familiar with AutoDevKit based development. The AEKD-BLINDSPOTA1 kit is a hardware assembly set with all required loads for the specific application, and the AEKD-BLINDSPOTB1 set consists of electronic boards to control the entire system.
Blind-spot detection is simulated through magnetic field detection by means of a Hall sensor mounted on a stationary car and magnets mounted inside another car placed on the conveyor belt moved by a 12 V DC gearbox motor with 40 RPM and very high torque.
The entire tool will help you develop the skills to build the firmware to control the system triggers using SPC5-Studio extended with AutoDevKit plugin. You can compare your resulting code with source code provided in the AutoDevKit plugin, and
system functionality can be tested by downloading the STSW-BLINDSPOT SPC58EC firmware.
