    well 16 ports for "Driving Miss Daisy" ;-)
    I have no sensors, on my AMG they are ussless ... but if we do the pcb rhen its better to have expansion slots.

    I dont remember the bimmer model, its the 6 sirees, its parked downstairs, I can try tak some pix in couple of days. But the point of the senors is the blind spot for shifting lanes. So if u showing turn signal and there is a car in tour blind spot the buzzle will alert u. That is really good safty feature. As just tooo many acidents happaning caz ofblind spots. (sure sensors have them too, but thats out of the siscussion for now)

    Ahhhhh, so its not 100% for the rear, but for the sides also... Thats more understandable. Similiar to what ford is doing on their cars, but theirs is ghetto. Its a LED light in the rear mirror, if a car is in the blindspot it turns on. I went to the extreme and have cameras in the blind spots.

    about 16 ports: idea to make use flexible and softrare configurable. so say I want 4x4 or 8x8 or 4x2 or 2x2 its all should be up to the user.

    as to the price if I can sale say 100 bords fast I might try to get it in around 100$ ( hope) otherwise I'll have to print 1000 boards to keep the price low (honestly i hate large printouts ... too expansive tooo risky)

    Also about port.. we can pur RS232 as of now as it does not require too much windows programing. However USB is much better deal but I need someone here to help mw with doing the DLL for talking to the board. I need something like Phidgets API for my product (just a DLL library for flexible API) HID Class Integratioon

    i have a meeting w/ the engeeneer tonight, I think we have bad news
    Darny sensors that are used for ebay parking system are primary piezo element sensors... so now we have to develop the secondary sensor bord even before we use USB. The only alternative solution is the one described here is to remanufacture alredy existing controllers... but that is not good enough for me. I want true indepandant device that will work directly with the sensors and send the data to USB for software operations.

    I still will gona m,ake it work sta tuned

    Robby, can you public source code of PIC program, what interface to USB?
    I want to use your idea with my sensors, it isn't about yours...

    There are many people who have paid for the PIC with the firmware, so I believe it would not be correct against them.
