SDK commands over the serial port ????
Can RR be made to accept SDK commands via the serial port? Iím trying to control RR via the serial port to show me certain screens in certain events like when in reverse gear the backup camera screen will come on or when the lights are ON, the night skin will load. Since the already built in SDK serves this perfectly the only thing to implement is that RR can receive the SDK commands via the serial port. I will be building a small hardware application that will monitor certain inputs. Depending on the state of each input the unit will send the according SDK command over the serial port. If RR could monitor the serial port for SDK commands then it would be easy to switch screens depending on the state of the inputs.
I would buy a phidgets board if they had one with letís say 4 digital inputs at a cheap price but I really donít need there 8/8/8/ board especially at the price they are selling it. I think a lot of RR user would love to have such a board
If this can be implemented in RR then I will make the board and post all the files so users with small electronic experience can build it.
In order for this board to work, the following would be required from RR.
1. As soon a RR loads it should send one control word over the serial port (e.g. RR_ON) to inform the unit the RR has loaded.
2. When the unit accepts the control word it then initializes and checks the inputs. Depending on the state of the inputs it will send the according SDK commands over the serial port. Input checking will be done continuously.
3. If for any reason RR exits, then it should send one control word over the serial port (e.g. RR_OFF) to inform the unit that RR has been terminated.
Iíd like to hear your comments on this and if it can be implemented.
Thanks for your hard work and patience
