Ship’s Heading Display for Battleship New Jersey


There is a secondary helm in the lower parts of the ship that is used for steering under emergency conditions.  This was deactivated when the ship was “demilitarized” when the ship was turned over as a museum ship.

Using an Arduino, I was able to read the turns on the ships wheel, and use those signals to move the ships heading and rudder angle indicator.

Pix, details and code will be made available…. soon!   🙂
