    Actually it can be done with EMF readers. Basically a 3d compass. As long as it is far enough away from metal, so put it in the cabin somewhere not hidden in the dash, it can sense direction in 3 axis's without the need for a reference because it measures the earth's magnetic field. They are pretty awesome, but that cool factor comes with a price. I am still looking though. The only downside is that in a few thousand years, it wont be accurate anymore, but I dont think your car, or even the USB standard for that matter will still be around then anyways!

    Oh, and your welcome.

    I am not sure if anybody but myself is interested in this, but I made a primitive Speech Recognition for the software.

    It is also on the website's download center: http://www.fusioncontrolcentre.com/S...%20Install.zip

    You will need multiple files for this, so that is why it is not just an exe update.

    The Main FusionFormDynamic.skin has new areas:
    Code:
    #USESPEECHRECOGNITION#true|false
    #USESPEECHFULLDICTATION#true|false
    I reccommend these settings:
    #USESPEECHRECOGNITION#true
    #USESPEECHFULLDICTATION#false

    #USESPEECHRECOGNITION# -- if true, then speech is enabled, else it is disabled
    #USESPEECHFULLDICTATION# -- if this is set to true, then the entire dictation library is used, which can cause very frustrating results. If false, it will read and compile rules based off of the SpeechHierarchy.atom file.

    SpeechHierarchy.atom file is the first steps at a rule set.

    Code:
    #SYSNAME#Computer;
    #TURNON#turn on;activate;initialize
    #TURNOFF#turn off;deactivate;stand down
    #GENERALOUT#output;relay
    
    #AQUERY#what is;what's
    #GENERALIN#sensor
    
    #CUSTOM##OUT##0##ON#roll down windows
    #CUSTOM##OUT##1##OFF#roll up windows
    #CUSTOM##IN##0#what is the temperature;what is the current temperature; what's the the temperature; what's the current temperature
    SYSNAME is the name you address or commencing keywords. In this case I am testing so it is Star Trek like with "Computer" and also a blank is made by just adding a ";" with nothing after it. So If it was just "Computer" with no semicolon, then all the commands would be "Computer, blah blah blah". Just "blah blah blah" would do nothing.

    TURNON and TURNOFF are the keywords for turning on and off the digital outputs respectively.

    And GENERALOUT is what you call the outputs.

    Then the default is the port number as assigned in the FusionFormDynamic.skin file.

    So for example, to turn on Output 1, and then turn off Output 2, say the following:

    "Computer, turn on output 0" and then "Computer, deactivate relay 1".

    Of course "output" and "relay" can be interchanged as well as "turn on" and deactivate" can be switched to their other words such as:

    "Computer, initialize relay 0" and then "Computer, stand down output 1".

    Now, "#CUSTOM##OUT##1##OFF#roll up windows" will assign a custom command to the output at port # 1 to turn off when the phrase "roll up windows" is spoken. Pretty simple.

    "#CUSTOM##IN##0#what is the temperature" is pretty much the same as above with a custom message for the input at port #0 to read its value when the phrase "what is the temperature" is spoken.

    So go ahead and play with it. It is far from finished, but it works pretty well.

    And of course the dll from that new download must be in the directory as well.

    yeah, but wouldn't that have to be 100% relative to level0% incline? how can the road be 100% level? wouldn't any pitch in the road skew these resulting readings to be meaningless as far as performance predictions etc?...

    I can see this being useful on an off road incline gauge, but wouldn't a g meter be better to predict & gauge performance related readings?

    sorry, back to topic, friggin voice control too!?!?!? that's so cool... this hardware/software is all that's needed to build KIT/nightrider type interface

    What about "Fire photon torpedoes" ? when the idiot pulls out in front of ya.

    Yeah, that's the addition I was looking for. Something to rid the road of crazy drivers.

    The voice file is user changeable.

    If you want all of them to respond to fire as turn on, then add it under the generalout, or if you just want it for 1 port, add it as a custom.

    Well the voice activation has a weird false positive on my laptop with no microphone at all plugged in.

    With nothing giving input to the mic channel, sometimes it recognizes "roll up windows" with supposedly great accuracy. Well, the good news is if I have a mic plugged in, it seems to work great.

    So moral of the story, dont enable speech, unless you are going to have a mic plugged in because it will start turning your outputs on and off whenever it feels like it.

    Anybody else get this?

    just letting evryone know, ive made leaps and bounds oin how to do my frontend.. and i can include many other things now i have the knowledge.. i hopefully can send and receive sms's straight from my software, using a specialised .dll. Zinc 2.5 is very very very powerful program to add to flash. i tell ya.

    awaiting your .dll toast. is it coded in c#? anychance of C++? or do they act the same in most circumstances

    It will be coded in C# because C++ and Java are the bane of my existance. God damn pointers.

    But anyways, some pretty crappy luck has happened which included but is in no way limited to: lightning, smoke detectors going off, alarms systems that were installed before we bought the house but never activated so we have no code to shut the damn thing that is wired into the mains off, computer being melted, and cable modem fusing itself to the internet cable.



    So basically I have no internet, and I am forced to drive around lurking on unencrypted wifi networks at night time when everyone else is asleep.

    I am still having problems with the dll, and of course, all the help files all are the internet! I even had to call the cable company to send out a repairman to fix the internet, and lo and behold, I get on my laptop and google doesnt work. Its a natural impulse now!

    I am so glad we have satellite tv, or I think I would die from electronics deprevation.

    So I hope to get the dll out soon, but truthfully I am having a lot of problems getting the shared memory setup. Maybe someone can shed some light on this, but until they do, I will muddle through it and try my best. Wish me luck!

    I'll have a review soon. Been busy with my other 3 jobs so i havent even found the time to hook it up to the power (which i still need to buy a cable for...)

    But i did, however, get the new update chip.
