Hey, presentation video is added here
As a next step of FDIM controller evolution I'm trying to use ESP32 board as its heart. That should allow to read and write some cool text info as track names or navigation hints - and get this data via WiFi link or Bluetooth connection. Code compiles, but may need modification to Sodaq_DS3231 library - inclusion of pgmspace.h should be surrounded by ESP32 macro check (exactly as in can-clock.ino file)
Recently reverse engineered headlights status in MS CAN messages. Already used in my other CAN project - CAN relay. But also can be used for this controller.
Messages frequency - 0.2-1 Hz
Or, more meaningful by bits
|Marker lights||bit 0 of byte b1 - 0 - off, 1 - on||.......M|
|Low beam||bits 3,4,5 of byte b1 - 000 - off, 111 - on||..LLL...|
|Autolamp||bit 1 of byte b1 - 0 - off, 1 - on||......A.|
|High beam||bit 1 of byte b0 - 0 - off, 1 - on||......H.|
On September 9th I've made a workshop "How to build DIY automotive electronics" at Moscow Mini Maker Faire. Been the only workshop with 16+ audience rating. Try to find me - should be easy even for non-Russian speakers :). Maybe next time I need to have more hacking rather than DIY audience, dunno. If you host car hacking conference and want me to talk on it - contact me :)
Slides are evolved version of Mail.ru DIY meetup talk. Updated English slides are coming soon.
