Python interface to Carrera(R) DIGITAL 124/132 slotcar systems

Project description

This module provides a Python interface to Carrera(R) DIGITAL 124/132 slotcar systems connected via serial port or Bluetooth.

>>> from carreralib import ControlUnit
>>> cu = ControlUnit('/dev/ttyUSB0')
>>> cu.version()
b'5331'
>>> cu.request()
Status(fuel=(15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 0, 0), start=0, mode=6,
       pit=(False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False),
       display=8)
>>> cu.start()
>>> cu.request()
Status(fuel=(15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 0, 0), start=1, mode=6,
       pit=(False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False),
       display=8)
>>> cu.start()
>>> cu.request()
Timer(address=1, timestamp=243019, sector=1)
>>> cu.request()
Timer(address=0, timestamp=245704, sector=1)

For Bluetooth access you will need the Carrera AppConnect(R) adapter, a Bluetooth Low Energy compatible device, and bluepy installed, which is only available for Linux. A serial connection should work on all platforms supported by pySerial.

For demonstration purposes, the carreralib module can also be used from the command line as a simple race management system (RMS).

Please refer to the online documentation for more information.

Installation

Install carreralib using pip:

pip install carreralib
