Carberry Project - CANBUS, GMLAN, R-LADDER... Add-on Module

Mon Mar 24, 2014 11:34 am

Hi Guys,
I'm glad to show you Carberry Project, an expansion module that allows you to interface RaspberryPi with some car systems.

Image
Introduction
Carberry aims to be a shield for Raspberry Pi microcomputers.
Carberry represents the link between car electronics and Raspberry Pi, which allows the development of end-user applications, such as media centers, vehicle diagnostics, data logging, fleet management, tracking, blackboxes, burglar alarms, carputing, internet, and much more.

Hardware specifications
- Same size printed circuit board as of Raspberry Pi, with proper shaping.
- Connection to Raspberry via the P1 26 pin GPIO header located on the board.
- 22 pin Microfit connector for vehicle connection.
- Power supply +12 V and GND from the vehicle.
- Power supply 5V 1A for Rasperry Pi generated onboard by Carberry.
- Control of the Raspberry Pi power supply by mosfet, for the management of low consumption.
- Logic shutdown signal to Raspberry Pi to perform a controlled shutdown.
- Low power consumption compatible whit automotive standards (< 3mA).
- Communication to the Raspberry Pi via UART (Pin 15/16 of P1 header).
- +12V Ignition signal input.
- +12V Ignition signal output with a 2.5A power mosfet.
- 2 CAN Bus lines for series or parallel connection at vehicle buses
- 2 GMLAN lines for series or parallel connection at vehicle buses.
- 1 LIN BUS transceiver.
- 2 channels for resistive steering wheel controls, with single key bypass capability.
- 1 general purpose UART 5V/3V3 .
- 2 general purpose 500mA open collector outputs.
- 2 general purpose inputs (to ground or 5V tolerant).
- 2 general purpose user-programmable LEDs.
- Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller.
- Button and two-color LED for can bus profiles learning and reset functions.
- PWM signal to Raspberry Pi for LIRC management.
- Infrared remote control emulation for media centers via steering wheel controls.
- Infrared sensor for 38KHz IR remote controls.
- Infrared LED for IR codes emission.
- Ready to Apple MFI program to develop applications under Linux (coprocessor not provided).
- RTCC to handle date and time with car battery backup.
- Raspberry Pi wakeup by RTCC at programmed date/time.
- External EEPROM with a unique identifier to be used for any licenses related to the card.
- Accelerometer + magnetometer, for anti-theft features, positioning, blackboxes.
- Raspberry Pi wakeup by accelerometer and magnetometer events.
- Microusb device connector for a stand-alone operation of the shield or future functionality.

Software specifications
- Interfacing to the Raspberry Pi via ASCII strings (like modem AT commands).
- Firmware upgradable via Raspberry Pi.
- CAN bus self-recognition of the car profile.
- GMLAN self-recognition of the car profile.
- Manual selection of CAN bus profile.
- CAN BUS Service Manager.
- Notification services (lights, handbrake, odometer, etc) to the Raspberry Pi.
- Management of CAN bus steering wheel controls.
- Notification of CAN bus steering wheel controls to the Raspberry Pi.
- Selective interception of the CAN bus steering wheel controls.
- Notification of fuel gauge and engine diagnostics (where available).
- Self-learning of resistive steering wheel controls.
- Selective interception of resistive steering wheel controls.
- Exposure to Raspberrry Pi of the Apple MFI Coprocessor to subscribe to the MFI program to play Apple devices connected to the Raspberry Pi USB.
- Exposure to Raspberrry Pi of a RTCC to manage time and date.
- Saving data to retain into EEPROM.
- Exposure to Raspberrry Pi of an accelerometer and magnetometer.
- Exposure to Raspberrry Pi of a unique code register.

New accessories will arrive soon:
  • Raspberry + Carberry Box
  • OBD Plug&Play harness
  • Preprogrammed SD with Carbian OS
  • Infrared Harness (compatible with LIRC)
Stay tuned... :D

Hi,

In your description I got the impression that LIN bus is available.
However on the official Carberry site I cannot see this info.

Can you clarify this misalignement?

Best,
Bogdan

Does a LIN BUS exist on this carberry board ? It doesn't appear in the official website carberry.it
