    RFID is for Driver/Passenger profiles. Also Security.

    The idea is that i get in, pass the RFID tag (keychain type) past the sensor, it picks me up as the driver and sets up the software accordingly.. loading my playlists/skin/volume/media/playback settings as well. But then other primary passengers who i've issued a RFID card to can swipe their tag and the option for merging the playlists can be presented, so that a mixture of music is played instead of just the drivers taste.

    touch sensors are going to be for activating certain things with a stealth approach, since they work through 1/4 inch of glass or plastic.. meaning they can be behind a piece of the dash and still work.

    Temp sensors are for the boot, cabin and engine bay. I'll be able to bring up a "top down" view of the car in teh software and see how hot each sensor is reading. Also automatic things like turning on fans in the carputer cage or amp rack if things get to hot in their respective areas.

    Light sensor was going to be used so that the software would change from day skin to night skin automatically and gradually.. The sensor works great, but the blending between Day/Night skins is problematic.. since at 50%, a white day skin and a black night skin essentially cancel each other out and you get a grey screen.. most unhelpful.


    There are some other gadgets as well, such as the Phidget Encoder, which is basically a USB rotary knob with a push-switch action to it, basically the same action as the stock stereo knob in VT onwards models.. which is going to be used as a replacement for the existing knob. Im actually writing the Input Plugin architecture for that right now in Mobilus.

    They're all Phidget's gear.. http://www.phidgetsusa.com

    Very cool, but a bit on the expensive side.. especially with Aus government duties of $115 when they send the order from the US

    Looking at the Jaycar range of response gear and it's looking good!
    When you get a chance, post how it sounds cos I'm also planning on purchasing some of those amps (the 800w monblock and the 4x100W amps). I was wondering how you intend to hook the amps up to the speakers in the door? As you removed the headunit I presume you would need a wire harness + run cables from the rear of the car where the amps are to the front to meet up with the harness.

    Yep its quite good for the cash.

    I did a sound test a few days ago, using my laptop as the sound source, but the sound card on my laptop is crap.. so it wasnt a good test. i should hopefully put the PC together soon, just got to get a flexible PCI riser card..

    I've laid proper speaker cable from the boot to the car doors through
    the existing gromets and re-wired the speakers using these new cables. The Factory wiring harness in the doors and for the head unit will remain intact incase i want to revert back to a stock stereo if i decide to sell it.

    hey Fox_Mulder, i can tell you now that the response gear is excellent, i got a 800w monoblock and a 4x50, and they work a treat, the monoblock is nuts, and the 4x50 gives some good sound aswell.
