UPDATE: there’s some new developments regarding car integration. Keep watching the main page for more news.
Interface to the car
- Using an OBD2 interface
Processing data in car
- Get CarPC with application and data connection (GPRS) that sends data to my home server
- Write script that analyzes the data and adds it to HomeSeer
That reads, records, interpret the data received from the OBD2
- Rev by DevToaster for the iPhone/iPod (€ 32)
- DashCommand by Palmer for the iPhone/iPod (€ 24)
- FuzzyCar for iPhone/iPod (€ FREE)
- This app posts the data on the FuzzyLuke website. (nice!)
- Which application? Have to decide if I’m going to buy Rev 2.0 (which can send logged data) or DashCommand (which is going to have a new version soon that also can send data via email). Don’t know which of these is better.
- REV looks great, has a intuitive GUI, can send tracked data but it can only ‘record’ 2 or 3 parameters
- DashCommand doesn’t look that good, doesn’t have data sending yet but there’s a big community, it allows a lot of customization and the new version is looks promising.
- Share data? Have to find a way to (automatically) post/email/ftp data collected (actually: graphs as I don’t want to bore people with a 1000-line CSV)
- HomeSeer integration is probably the most difficult part ;-) If an app sends an emails containing the trip data I could write a script that analyzes this data and grabs the most important info
Which data do I want to see?
- Current mileage
- Average fuel consumption
- Average miles / day
- Remaining fuel (so I can get a notification when the car runs out of fuel)
Next next next Car tracking using Xexun TK103 (or TK102). You need:
- Tracker TK103/TK102
- SIM card with data subscription
- Software to process the data send
