I'm very happy to test if that's helpful... let me know what you want me to do :smile:
Thanks markwj and foxium for your hard work on this.
Thanks for working on this. Both the Tesla Tattler and this show how many amazingly talented people there are out there who can accomplish things like this so I appreciate it. Both projects look amazing.
Thanks markwj and foxium for your hard work on this.
first. what great job you all are doing to make life simpler and more convenient for the rest of us..... not so abled.....!
i had an idea and am not sure how far scott has gotten in his CAN bus research. would it not be great if from your mobile device one could change the type of charging that has been set. for example: winter storage is not at home and so the car is in storage mode but I know that tomorrow I will pick it up and would love the charging pattern to be on another setting to get the battery fully up and running. or the car is sitting at home on standard charge and you are out and get an offer to go somewhere the next day which needs range charging but you won't be home in time to implement the extra charge, etc., etc. would this be possible to implement?
also in the writup for the IOS version 0.91 you wrote of open doors etc in the diagram........ on my phone they are closed.......... not a big deal but just wondering........ also noticed that this build does nothing on the iPad.........!
Works ok, but my only observation is that tabs 2 and 5 are the same wrench icon.
Your suggestion for changing charging type should be possible. Scott451 released a good starter set of CAN bus messages, and we have since been busy trying to discover the rest. We've since found and documented things like odometer, trip counter, unlock/lock, tpms, speed, etc.
Our code can operate in two modes - listen-only and active. In listen-only mode, it does not transmit or in any way acknowledge stuff on the CAN bus - this is very safe and extremely unlikely to ever affect any in-car systems. In active mode, it participates on the can us, and can transmit messages. It can spoof the VDS and do most things (on the CAN bus it works with) that the VDS can. It can, in fact, do more (like incremental amperage limits, not just the stepped amperages that the VDS offers).
In iOS version 0.9.1, the doors will change to red color if they are opened. The DEMO car doesn't open doors, so you won't see this. But, if you watch closely you will see the DEMO car does open the charge port (it changes color to red) when charging. It also unlocks when driving and locks when charging.
The iPad support is not yet complete. We've really been concentrating on iPhone/iPodTouch. That said, iPad is our next target. We are planning to re-arrange the 3 current iPhone tabs (Battery, Car and Location) and put them on 1 for the iPad. This should be achievable in the short term.
Longer-term, I'm hoping some more experienced iOS developers can get involved to help out here.
Things are moving incredibly fast, and we've got some exciting announcements coming. We're really glad the hardware is finally going out to developers, which is the first step in getting it out to the wider community. It is incredible to see my car on the system - I feel much more comfortable on-street-parking when I can check up on the car, and sharing location/status is a great alternative to find-my-friends!
Thanks for the kind words. We really hope we can get there soon.
would it not be nice if one could swipe between screens, at least between the charging screen and the car screen so that there is smoother operation of the app. maybe this is where you are hoping for some help from experienced IOS developers...... I'll see if I might be able to drum up one for you.....
what is your final idea for notably the car screen? for the charging screen you have a very slick image of the actual car and a very smooth and slick battery with charge state. however, for the car screen you are much more simplistic. is this a deliberat departure to not end up with clutter? if you are interested I could look at different ideas for the car screen.........
also when you talk about open and closed doors do you mean locked and un-locked or really open and closed? and is there data in the can bus for open and closed trunk and hood lid as well? this would be almost more interesting to know, if you have closed both sides of the trunk lid or not....... or if someone is trying to muck about with the PEM or the battery...... on that note could one detect at the charge port if a) the car is charging b) it is finished c) disconnected? that way have the same pulsating lights in the icon as ,on the car when unlocked........... back to the doors. if you mean open/closed then could it not be nice to make a small GIF anim to actually have them open and closed? etc., etc.......... maybe this clutters up too much. but on the other hand maybe it could be done in a very clean and subdued manner...........
are you thinking of implementing any active controls of the VDS? in that case there could be a 5th screen for the active controls of the tesla..... that way people that want to use this functionality (on their own risk it sounds) could unlock this capability on the cars screen and the 5th screen would then be available....... I do understand that we are getting in to some tricker programming stuff but as I said I think I might be able to help here......
also installed 0.92 on the ipad and it's much nicer now with the screen having a much better use. (this is by the way why I started thinking about swiping on the iPhone)...... it would be closer and easier to get to the info you want......
I'll see what I can do. no graphics guy but an architect with some knowledge in the field..... ;-). and for the programming a really good friend of mine has a game company that develops mostly for IOS and android. I think he might be willing to help...... we'll see.......
