    Thumbs up Car computer software with command line interface to trigger actuator

    Does anyone know of car computer software that has a command line interface that i can use to communicate with a circuit board that will trigger actuators to open doors/hood/trunk etc.

    For instance:

    Execute a command from command line to open driver door

    Thanks!

    You need hardware to do that.
    Fusion Brain, Phidgets, etc.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    i have to ask-- why do you want to do this from the command line? most carpc software is specifically focused at reducing driver distraction, and imo, using the comand line would go against that.

    the computer in the car will be running a webserver. The actuators will be controlled by a web user. Click a link on the webpage, execute program via command line, door opens

    again, "Fusion Brain, Phidgets, etc " all have this capability, so it doesnt matter which i purchase?

    No doubt those (door) controls are paralleled with the manual switch?

    (I know this is a redundant reply. Not that I know all....)

    You will need to do some research about the command-line functionality. I honestly don't know.

    If you're asking if a front-end has the ability to execute commandline code, the Ride Runner front-End supports commandline interfaces. I have several buttons in my skins tied to command line code. Download the RR documentation and review the "skin commands.txt" sections on "RUN", "RUNW", "RUNQ", and "RUNQW".

    I believe the above items were mentioned because there are RR plugins supporting those devices, i.e., no need for a commandline interface.

    Good luck with your project.
