Re: Micro Pi

Thank you for suggestions of other chips,
but one of the main requirements is code compatibility.
Having written and proven the software on a RasPi, I would wish Raspbian and my code to run (ideally) unchanged on a Micro-Pi.
Too much to hope for?

Re: Micro Pi

Thanks Moderator, Yes I am aware of the model A capabilities, but the critical factor is size (max 15x25mm) in order to fit inside the ATrack AX5. I was hoping that other RasPi users might want something similar, perhaps in the robotics area. My application is currently running in the car on a model...

Re: Micro Pi

Thanks for your helpful ideas. I have no plan to monitor speeding offences, the unit is designed to have absolutely no user interface, in order to avoid distracting the driver, and hence allowing easier 'e-marking'.

Re: Micro Pi

Tamper resistance would be a combination of sealing the unit - it simply plugs into the vehicles OBD-II socket below the steering wheel, and software. All GPS tracking devices can be defeated - the trick is to make the driver appreciate the functionality supplied. Power is indeed plentiful in a car,...

Micro Pi

Apologies I cannot find the 'Suggestions' topic, so writing it here. What I need, and I hope others would benefit, is a really cut-down version of the Raspberry Pi, to use as a headless, code compatible 'Application Processor': No HDMI, No RCA Video, No Sound, No GPIO, No Ethernet, One USB for conne...
