my Engine Control Module

Postby russian » Wed Aug 07, 2013 9:07 pm

Let me introduce my own time waster - I am trying to develop my own automotive engine control module. I've wanted to learn something new for some time now, so ten months ago I've ordered a soldering iron and a discovery board.

As of today, my test vehicle can go around the block. The software side of things is easy for me, I am mostly struggling with the analog side of the physical world, but I am not giving up yet.

Anyway, here you are - http://sourceforge.net/p/rusefi/blog/

That's nice - thanks for sharing!
How about adding an touchscreen LCD module to get some information without a computer? :P

The day I see something like 7" SPI driven screen under $50, I order it. Parallel ports are just too parallel for me :)

How comes? What's exactly your problem with a parallel interface? It's really no big issue to set it up and get it running (beside the wiring :twisted: ). When you get the free pins, you can hook it up to the FSMC interface of your F4 discovery board, then it's really just a few lines of code to set the FSMC peripheral up.

Also, there are pretty good reasons why there are no 7" LCDs with an SPI interface :D

Quick update: ChibiOS-based ECU is driving the car around the block

If anyone would be interested to contribute time we have some open tickets - some do not require any car knowledge at all :)
