    Safety distance warning plugin

    And another plugin I'm thinking of: a sensor installed in the bumper and using the gps input to trigger the alarm when the car is running. the warning can be very useful when you're not attentive to the road, well you should, for any reason... happens while answering a call or an sms :-) sometimes at low speeds in traffic jams.

    I have 2 options for that. Either my all in one box or individual boards if you only wanted to do the front or rear and not have the phidgets/obd2/tpms/gps and if you already bought the sure board that's what I use in my all in one. Or you can use robby's schematics and make your own board, I have the programmed pic chips you need for either tpms or parking distance and I have the correct parking kits needed but only black sensors that can be painted without affecting the signal. I am still waiting on the slow boat from asia with my TPMS kits needed and some spare sensors. SNO

    what is your all in one box? I'm only thinking of this for front car use. Signal needs to be strong enough to reach maybe 3-5 meters to leave enough room and time for braking. For the back (park assistance) I've been using this for 5 years http://www.proxel.com/en/. invisible and do the job.

    If you only want the front the you just need a single board w/ pic chip and a sensor kit. $125.00cad + shipping. Black sensors only SNO

    I have never heard of those Electromagnetic Parking Sensor strips before. When I went to the Proxel site and seen the 84 price and the "Beware of Counterfeit Products", I was intrigued with "Counterfeit" so looked them up on ebay.

    Now this fits into my disposable income, if it don't work and ends up in the junk box, no sweat!

    cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=371127835262

    So, what say anyone to this type of sensor that you do not have to drill four 12mm holes to install?

    It looks like all I would have to do is take the buzzer output, wire into the Phidget input on Sno's box, and a slight of XML in Driveline to make my screen either mute music, or some other trigger I would immediatly notice to tell me I am about to scrape my front splitter on a curb.

    I've been using the proxel for 5 years now. The sent me a spare roll too. You just have to put duct tape on the strip to prevent any premature wear from dirt or water. cannot comment on the ebay stuff. item was not available on ebay at the time :-) One thing though in rainy days it tends to beep even with no obstacle nearby because of the rain drops. and you need to keep the bumper clean for the tape to function correctly. to much dirt will trigger the beeping like an obstacle.

    The all in one board gives obd2/tpms/phidgets/gps/parking distance front and rear and a free usb port. it uses the scantool microbd200 chip, the phidgets 1010 8/8/8 analog/digital in/out chip, TPMS based on the robby design and uses the 3rd eye TPMS sensor kit, GPS using the sure electronics Dev board, parking distance based on robby's design providing front and rear 4 sensors each 1 being wireless or both being wired. The all in one box has built-in support in Driveline, CF using various plugins and 1 paid plugin for phidgets, RR I have not tested but it would use the same plugins as for robby's based boards just not sure on the phidget plugin. It draws power from obd2 port or any other 12v automotive power amd requires only 1 usb connection to the computer. It has built-in power regulators for 12/5 and 3.3 volts. I hookup behind the obd2 port just connecting the 2 wires I need for OBD2 communications, basically I just use the can lines but it can use any protocol in the elm 32x series. Thanks for asking SNO
