The super 100% rear view system!
After debating on wether to use the FB in my install, in the end I decided not to use it to have it take over alot of functions of the car. When the car started, I had to be able to simply go and do my stuff. I guess deep down inside I wanted the FB, so I have found a new purpose for it, but I want to ask if it is doable first.
I have a complex rear system, it is controlled by a Digital Quad Proccessor, which is used for security cameras to show multiple cams on 1 screen. I know I will be breaking the law, but I have decided to x-out my side mirrors and have only cameras. Currently when I turn the car on, I have a monostable switch that turns the DQP from it default 4 screen view, to a 3 screen view, which shows left and right sides and rear. Here is where the FB comes in. When I go to turn left and use my turn signal, I would like the FB to tell the DQP to go to camera 2, which is the left camera. Once I shut off the turn signal, the DQP goes back to 3 screen mode. Same thing with right side. I know the FB is programmable, so will I need the PC to be on to do this? I do not really want to control it at all through the PC, if anything it will be a process that runs in the background. Please give me pointers on what I can do to acheive this, or if I need a FB at all.
