DCC Controller with Bluetooth 4 Low Energy and iPhone App

screen568x568You might remember this post where Gary Fletcher was putting together a DCC Model Train controller, he added a nice box an LCD and to make the control of the model trains and their functions (lights, sound, steam etc) he added a BLE adaptor and developed an iPhone app to control it.

This project would have been incredibly difficult if it wasn’t for the help of various members and it’s amazing the leverage, ideas and knowledge base we have at RLab.

The specialist kit like the electronics bench, power supplied and scopes made this happen and it was super fun and great to have built almost an entire product at the space!
