Hardware for the Automotive Linux Hobbyist - Nathan Willis, LWN.net

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While car-makers and tier-one suppliers move towards Linux en masse, a parallel community of home-brew automotive computing enthusiasts is building its own hardware to meld aftermarket PC hardware with CAN bus, OBD-II, environmental sensors, and existing electrical systems.  This talk will explore:

* sensor and relay hardware used by hacker-hotrodders, including commercial, arduino-based, and custom-made PCB options
* OBD-II and CAN bus equipment
* open source electronic fuel injection and ECU projects
* driver and API coverage for hobbyist hardware

The talk will provide entry points for automotive enthusiasts, as well as highlight missing pieces of potential interest to hardware vendors and software developers interested in after-market automotive Linux.
