    For the brake system I didn't decide yet how to trigger it, but as said above a radial actuator should work. To cut the fuel and to control the door's lock system, we will use a few relays. As safety measures we plan to do like those blocking systems, a LED will light up 15 seconds before any action and if the driver wants to turn off these controls, he can do that with a physical switch hidden anywhere in the car (this will turn on/off the relays).

    2. Once the security system is activated it will behave like you want. To program a desired behavior the user will simple drag and drop function icons (cut the fuel, brake the car, lock/unlock doors, trigger the horn, call an emergency number, etc), or course, this is done using the touch screen.
    3. While the system is activated a hidden camera will record everything inside the vehicle and, later, you can watch and download the video to know who stole your car and help the police to catch the bad guy.
    4. As additional work you can track your car in live time: a gps module will get fixes and will send it (through 3G or sms text - still to be defined), so you can view where the thief is going and later retrieve your car.
    5. Since the system will have bluetooth, the user can also lock/unlock doors and open/close windows using the cellphone.

    So, every function and behavior is user-defined with a friendly interface and made through drag-n-drop icons. Thats where we'll take advantage of Qt and Meego.

    Considering meego can't do 4/5 things in that list this should be interesting to see

    meego can't get gps coordinates, connect via 3g, connect to the vehicle's bus (nobdy) connect to anything via bluetooth or send/receive sms messages?

    MeeGo already does all that. Does it have the app that connects all these pieces together to accomplish the goal? no, but that's the proposal now isn't it.

    Connecting and being able to do anything are completely different things. Nobdy cant control doors, windows, or anything functional really. Connecting to bluetooth works as does hsp and hfp but theres no profiles that allow remote control implemented.

    You want the breakdown....ok:

    meego has no way or planned way to interface with a security system...not to mention this requires a cell phone app that doesn't exist

    meego has no way to control anything in your car..nobdy is a nice concept but it cant do any of that.

    no camera support afaik but this one is potentially do-able

    this is the 1/5 i was referring to

    no support for any bluetooth profile that would allow that...nor are there any cell phone apps to do it.

    I use nobdy for car control (lock, unlock, start, panic, pop-the-trunk, etc).

    There are API's for camera and you can do whatever you want using the bluetooth spp profile.

    Also, you could easily use the fusion brain + some sensors and nobdy to do car security fairly easily.

    The whole point of this contest is to come up with a creative app(s) that does something unique that meego doesn't do currently. My point is, MeeGo has the infrastructure pieces and the APIs to do everything he wants to do. He just needs to utilize those pieces in a way that meets his goals.

    So in short, MeeGo has the support but doesn't completely do what he wants to do, but that the whole point of the contest no?

    mego and QT is C++ based frameworks, you can do all you want in it if you know the programming... will that person deliver all his thoughts? dono... there lots of work needed to be done and lots of itrefacing with different thing + he has to use spesific borad to deliver. If he has experiance in those projects and working base ex working w/ gps traking systems and alredy run back end server that can handle beacons fom at least 1000 users in each sec then he is good to go. same thing goes to hardware, bt, fusionbrain/phydgets are 1 thing but connecting it to car is a bit more then just sticking in immobilizer w/ relay (well not on Greman cars at least lol)

    BT wise you can use serial stak that will allow do the job.. that what i'm playing aroud to unlok my car and turn headlights and obtain coordinates if im in BT or ZeeBee range. But my project is dedicated hardware so im not depandant on power hungry electonics. Anyway that is irrelvant.

    So my 50C: All that is doable and workable if you know what you are doing
    For us to do all described functionality will take probably 1 year

    PS: sorry for misspeled words
