Re: Introducing The Sleepy Pi - A Sleep mode and Arduino I/O

I'd love to test one! I'm building a RasPi Car Computer, and would like to turn on & off via ignition.

Re: RasPi Carputer

I built a car computer a while ago. It was basically a 386 motherboard in a metal box. To turn it on and off I used a PIC microcontroller. The computer PSU was connected to a permanent 12V supply (the car battery, basically), but the PSU could be held in a low-power 'off' state. The PIC was install...

Re: RasPi Carputer

I have 12VDC -> USB adapter and battery guard on my setup. That 12VDC thingy get's power from battery and so does battery guard which cut power around ~10.88v and then relay tell to Pi (via GPIO) to start shutdown. I also have switch to start that same shutdown manually when I want. Could that kind...

Re: RasPi Carputer

My main issue is the scripting & other software now.

I know how to hook an "accessory wire" to one of the pins, but what script do I need to Start it/ Power it down?

Also, I'm looking for some good Telemetry & GPS software.

Re: RasPi Carputer

That's a little out of my price range. I'm looking for a way to wire it in myself. So as not to have to spend much money on it, I want this to cost as little as possible.

Re: RasPi Carputer

I see what you are saying, but essentially, that is just like cutting the power from the pi all at once. I want to do a safe shutdown for the pi so that I don't corrupt the SD.

RasPi Carputer

I know this has had probably a hundred threads devoted to it, and I've looked through a lot of them! lol I just need a bit more information. I've found an old DVD player screen that I will use as a head, and I think I'll strap it to my sun visor. I want to mount my pi in the glove box, and hard wire...

Well, my kindle fire (1st gen) messed up. Anyway I can take the screen off of it and use it? I know I'd need some sort of controller board, but can I even get one?

Re: Kindleberry Pi-like set-up

Gotcha. Use VNC to control the PI for non-media applications Use UPnP to stream media. Now the question is, can I stream media via UPnP via USB? I'd like to use this while in the car, I guess it would be best to set up an ad-hoc network for the road trip? I'll also need to look into getting the rasp...

Kindleberry Pi-like set-up

Hello, I have a rooted Kindle Fire running CM10.1 and Android 4.2.2. I was wondering if there was a way I could set this up to control RasPi via USB and Wi-Fi. I know you can set-up VNC server & client to use as remote control, and this is sort of what I'd like to do, except more of a screen than vn...

OK, so I have a raspberry pi, and am really interested in making robots with it, but I don't have the slightest clue where to begin. I'm pretty good with that sort of thing though, and can figure it out by trial and error, but having a tutorial will be a great help, does anyone know of any? Also, an...

This is great, I've been wondering what I should do with my Pi, and I believe this is it!! If you ever get the step by step, you should definitely share it, along with an entire parts list.
