are you going to use bluetooth to connect sensor with main board?
Certainly! As soon as modules will appear at me available!
The printed-circuit boards developed for work together with a bluetooth by the module are already ordered in production and the bill is paid.
The problem - to find modules, from China very long go - 3 month.

Today I powered the "Ascetic" through StepUp DC/DC the converter from one LiFePo4 600 maH of the accumulator, of the size of the AA battery - works.
Efficiency of the converter - 73%.
It isn't a lot of, of course, but at linear stabilizers isn't higher.
If to turn out - I will make sepic DC/DC which will work from 3 to 30 Volt.  ;) :D

Is your system fully compatible with miles tag 2 protocol ? I mean you can see who shoot you, same damage, control via refree gun, scores etc? In other words: is it possible to have different taggers in one team/club and feel NO difference and NO problems during the game?
keep posting your progress :)

Thanks! :)
"Shot" completely corresponds to the protocol.
Thank God, it is open!   ;D
While only shot.
The identifier of the player, color of the team, a caused damage - everything is adjusted either by means of LCD, or by means of the computer through RS-232 port.
Sounds change as through RS-232 port.
Unfortunately, with other systems while it wasn't succeeded to play. :(
But I plan to make both statistics, and the panel, and a bluetooth communication (with a bandage and with the computer), and other...
Today I experimented StepUP DC/DC.
I powered "Ascetic" from one LiFePO4 of the battery and from two AA batteries.
Look (excuse for bad quality)..

After measurement of currents I counted efficiency of transformation - 73% turned out.

nice, really small :) When are you planning to post video showing full system working ?

You mean - completely assembled blaster?
Will have a little bit to wait - not all components are available, it is necessary to order.  :(
And as the printed-circuit board works - I already spread the link one video higher.

Are you going to make separate bluetooth module for wireless comunication between tagger and sensors? ? I quess many people would be interested in adding this to their taggers runing with MilesTag :)

Yes, of course, these printed-circuit boards just also are intended for work about a bluetooth by the module.
It is possible to use already ready PCB under the module

The module I plan to use to HC-05, or a linking of HC-06 - HC-05


And if you speak about the universal module - for any blaster on Miles?
I too thought of it.
Such too it is possible.

I thought about additional module for MilesTag system to make it wireless (between tagger and sensors). Something like phoenix bluetooth wireless module, but its a bit expensive - about 50 $

I got it.
I thought about such, to make really.
Technical problems I don't see.
And what price would suit you?
Two modules and two controlers at least are necessary.

The new printed-circuit board in work.

I wrote firmware under 56 kHz of F0.
But to check yet on what.  :(

I tested the modernized printed-circuit board of the third release (blue a board) for the period of continuous work without recharge.
In a "quiet" mode (shots 10-15 at an o'clock) with 4 included light-emitting diodes the device worked from one lithium accumulator with a declared capacity of 2000 мАч 28 hours 30 minutes.

Control of "Ascetic" on a bluetooth and uploading of sound files in EEPROM.

As it was succeeded to write down fitmware on a bluetooth.  ;) :D

ir sensor, StepUP DC/DC modul and RS-232 modul (PCB).
