My starting point for this project will be some open source projects already in existence but haven't been developed in years and I believe all of them hold limiting licenses. I will be totally redoing the code base just using the current code base as example code. I am not 100% sure if I want to use C++ as my base language or C#. I will be developing using my windows machines under VS2012 or newer.
The projects I plan to make use of include odbsim, odblogger, openodb.
I know BennY has been working on some unified control stuff and also tripzero has a project as well. I hope to talk to both of these members and discuss their projects and see where they are headed as well. Might be able to save us all some work if we work together towards a common goal.
I should note however that I am currently in college becoming a software engineer so my time will be relatively limited but I want to work towards this goal. My truck project will greatly depend on this so I want to build it and evolve it over time. If others jump on the bandwagon it can be developed into something special.
