Automon Complete

Well not quite, still testing and fixing of a few known bugs. However it really is complete to me. All widgets and functionality is implemented and actually works! Tested it today on my MG and everything worked a charm. I’ve yet to try it on a few more cars but I don’t see why they’d be different since the ELM327 supports all.

Below I’ve included photos of Automon on the TS7390 since it might look a bit more realistic than the screen shots. The camera is years old and my hands arn’t steady so apologies for the quality. It actually looks superb in real life, almost better than the screen shots below. Colors come out great, even though it’s only 15bits.

Automon Startup on TS7390

Today I modified some run level scripts on the embedded Linux. I set up the environment variables and locations of libs in the /etc/rc.local script. This script runs at end of run level 2, in multi user mode and Automon automatically starts. Now all I have to do is connect the TS7390 to the car and turn it on. I also purchased an inverter for the car today that works so no need for DIY circuits at the moment to power the SBC.

Anyways Automon now starts up on start up of the TS7390 so no more need for telnetting into the board.

Created Dashboard Widget

Today I made the Digital Dashboard widget. Ok it isn’t very digital since it’s analog dials, but communicated in a digital way at least! It didn’t take long to create this since I already had the dial widgets from before. The widget’s themselves could look a lot better but it will do for now.
