safer way to battery power raspberry pi in car

I need my raspberry pi to continue to run after my car turns off. I don't want to hard wire it to an always on circuit in the car's fuse box as I worry it can drain the battery and cause the car to not start, so I picked up a battery backup HAT for the raspberry pi (it's like a UPS). The problem is ...

got smoke... damaged item unknown

I picked up a raspberry pi UPS board (Eleduino Raspberry Pi Backup Battery, https://amzn.com/B01LLJ2010) and a 600 mAh lithium polymer battery. I tried to plug in the battery into the UPS board's female battery connector and though it didn't fit the board's LEDs lit up when the metal parts of the co...

Re: Simultaneous AP and client using two wireless adapters

In this set up, does the client adapter auto connect to the saved/preferred AP (e.g., when I'm home it'll connect to SSID "digityzed pad" and when I'm using my mobile hot spot auto connect to SSID "digityzed hotspot")?

Simultaneous AP and client using two wireless adapters

How do I set up one wireless USB adapter (or RPi 3's built-in WiFi) to always be in client mode AND auto connect to an available saved/preferred wireless network and another wireless USB adapter to always be an AP and not disrupt Internet connectivity of the first wireless adapter?

Re: ALPR

I'm also interested in having OpenALPR use video, but it looks like processing a video file requires a commercial license ( http://doc.openalpr.com/video_processing.html ). Though, their documentation for the command line utility says you can process your webcam directly with the following command a...

rpi + camera + z-wave

is it possible to make a z-wave camera using raspberry pi, a camera (the module or USB camera) and z-wave add-on (RaZberry GPIO daughter board or AEON Z-Stick USB adapter)? If so, how? If not, why?

Re: Any ideas for car project?

The OBD II and LED idea is genius! So will a Raspberry Pi 2 and Arduino Uno paired with a 20 amp power source won't suffice as a high current driver?

Any ideas for car project?

My car's interior is currently disassembled after installing a Android head unit and backup camera. It's been like this for days as I struggle to come up with a raspberry pi centered project/idea to install, but I can't think of anything to do, LOL! Below is a list of tinkering stuff I have on hand ...

Re: migrate installation from RPi model B to RPi 2 model B

SOLVED! I cloned the SD card to the micro SD card by copying and pasting the partitions via gparted (using a Live CD). Surprisingly it booted without a hitch on the Raspberry Pi 2. Ran the recommended commands folks in this thread (including rpi-update) on the old Pi before shutting down and cloning...

migrate installation from RPi model B to RPi 2 model B

How do I go about migrating a Raspbian installation on a Raspberry Pi model B (512 MB RAM) to a Raspberry Pi 2 model B? I'm also moving the Camera Module along with the installation too - will it just work or will I need to perform some special steps to get it working again?

Re: can I salvage an OS installation?

Another question... before cloning I noted the bad SD's boot partition was 288 KB and the good SD's boot partition is 14 MB (unfortunately I forgot to check the contents of the bad SD's partition before cloning)... could a fumbled "apt-get upgrade" cause boot corruption? or a could a bad SD card cau...

Re: can I salvage an OS installation?

SOLVED! copying/cloning the FAT16/boot partition worked like a charm - I simply copied and pasted using gparted. Video comes on and it boots into my Raspbian installation without a hitch. Actually it initially freaked out during boot because the last boot times recorded from the partitions were inco...

Re: can I salvage an OS installation?

Hmmm... can I simply use gparted to copy the boot partition from a known working SD card to the boot partition of the non-booting SD card (leaving the Raspbian installation partition alone)?

I've always had this nagging issue with this make & model SD card (Sandisk Ultra 16 GB class 10) where it randomly won't boot anymore. I usually just re-image card and start over again, but this time I actually put a ton of work into this current Raspbian installation and need to salvage it and have...

Re: video changes using raspberry pi

So to build a poor man's version of it, is the below what I need?
  • flat panel TV/monitor
  • raspberry pi
  • USB webcam
  • motion (webcam software)
  • the video clips I want triggered
  • fullscreen video player software that can run from command line
