Maybe Connect2Car MFC is what you need instead?
Hey Nick & Tim and any other brain users that can chime in on this!
So I've been researching a car pc for quite some time now and have been researching & reading on embedded elec. etc and FB is definitely what I'm needing for a lot of my desired goals.
The most important goal and the first I wish to tackle though is a passive entry system.
Essentially it looks like I'll need an eyeR & FB to do this as the FB needs the computer to operate correct?
So, the main two questions I have are:
1. How would I integrate a bluetooth transmitter and receiver with the FB?
If essentially I'm wanting to have a transmitter in my pocket as the "key" and when I let's say get within 10 ft (which from my understanding bluetooth transmits different voltages from different distances so if 10ft = 3v) then it would trigger an event to unlock the doors. And then consequently if voltage < 3v it would lock the doors.
2. The second question is doing a certain action based on the length a button is pressed. I'll try and make this as easy to read as possible
4 Possible Actions
-Off (Revert to no power and no action)
If button press < 5000ms Then
If Action = Off then
Action A = True
If Action = A Then
Action B = True
Action Off = True
If Action = C Then
Action Off = True
Action = C
How could I do this? Or can I do this? The vehicle would there again be off for some of these actions so would eyeR be needed for this?
Thank all of you in advance for any help/support! I'm so excited about this project and all there is to learn!
I dont know how the eyeR is programmed, so I dont know if that is possible.

As you get near the vehicle, there is no way of preventing the doors from unlocking. That's a breach. Then once your inside, you have to disable the transmitter to lock the doors. I'd stick with the "active" transmitter/receiver to control entry.
I looked at the wireless and I think one had 4 channels. I'm thinking of using one to fire up the PC from a distance and have a couple inputs for the brain. Justs my thoughts.
