    the device is only $100 w/o sensors...


    We have so far redesigned the site and the software. Features:
    * Parking assistant can work with or without CarPC (or when CarPC is booting or program not loaded)
    * Sound indication is in beeps on the device or speech/tone on CarPC
    * There is internal sound beeper with adjustable frequency and loudness
    * 8 sensors in one package
    * Version is wired
    * 2 GUI programs nicely working transparantely over RR/CF [integration is not really required altough we have a port]

    For US market, you can easily get 2 radars on local market, and USB adapter starts from $38 (so you if you know how to solder, you need the adaptor + 2 radars you obtain from local shops).



    We can ship you two radars and adapter for $114 (needs soldering!) - this is the compelte DIY 8-sensor solution for rear and front, but you got to assemble it your self.

    If you absolutely not into assembly, than there are assembled packages starting from $87 (USB port embedded right into the radar, which makes assembly quite inexpensive), to $187 - complete 8 sensor ready for installation package.

    Software is installed trough a single http://www.novorado.com/setup.exe utility.

    It is generally recommended for patient entusiast. Try installing the software first to make sure it's compatible - if something does not work, tell us. There is SDK in the package. Source code is mostly open.

    Here is product comparison. See the pics on product pages, it's self-explainatory.

    Compiler : CCS Compiler.
    PINS : 16& 17 need to be shorted on PIC 18f4450 and Pin 12&13 on PIC 18f2550

    Thanks.


    Request feedback/brickbats.

    OK, from the last 2 posts, which is better? The one from novorado seems very interesting.

    Which One is better.......

    Bit tricky question..... it all depends how much time u want to invest in installing a parking sensor to interface to ur carputer.

    If u like doing things with ur own hand... then PDC-USB is a good option and it cheap too and most importantly not 'stuck up' with one OEM.

    however things change when u are short on time and prefer the mechanic top do the job.. then the previous usb integrated parking sensor is recommended.

    Good attempt Ishan!
    And your inclination to Open-Source the MCU code is much appreciated. I guess you should start a new thread showcasing your project.

    Well I am not good at building circuits. I originally bought the kit for the tire sensors and messed that up. I had to buy the fully built unit for the PC (louk's kit).

    How do one get the parker.exe running? it complains about missing PARKTRONIC_EMPTY_NO_VIDEO.jpg... I did try the installer and that one complains about CF not installed. And the instructions did not tell clear enough how to install when running RR
    Blessed are the "cracked" for it is they who let in the light.

    figured it... just de-select everything but the parking assist option...

    now could be nice to make a real RR plugin for this. but need some sourcecode for that

    who is good with C++ and have the time to make a RR version? i know i might be a bit far out asking for this but seems that the hardware is up to the job and only half the price

    Complaining about that video message means you probably did not install "Bundle Fix" package. It's an image conversion libs. If access is broken, or file is missing, it'll complain.
