Hi t vago
The problem of waking up that I had before, with this change did not happen again.
But I encountered a problem while scrolling through the setings, when it was. "Scratchpad (odo?)" It does not proceed as it should, it goes to the definition of this parameter, the same happens when I run in the opposite direction, When it is used, the "P(Fuel) Pa" it goes to the definition of this parameter.
Also the name of the parameter in some situations does not erase the name of the previous parameter being visible in the following as you can see in the video.
A correction that should also be made was with the "AutoSave" that should only save when you make a new trip and not only because you pressed the button, also the message that shows "AutoSave Done" should disappear after 1 or 2 seconds, And display again the screen that was before the autosave.

OK, I've fixed the blown Zener on my meelis board, so I've got that working. In my effort to now blow any more arduinos I decided to base my interface board on meelis' design which is a little different than the others. After reverse-tracing much of the board using Fritzing, I found this reference to the meelis design: MPGuino schematic - MPGuino - Meelis P

I have some questions before I proceed -- I have fried some boards due to back flow -- (power coming in on the vss and existing on who knows what, the fuel injector or ground perhaps) -- do the extra components I mention below address this, and is that why I've been blowing boards, due to simple mistakes?

1. This design (link) shows an electrolytic (or at least polarized) capacitor bridging the 7805 output and ground. All other designs show an unpolarized cap, and everything I've seen shows a nonpolarized ceramic cap in this spot. This cap is similar in function to the 330uf that bridges the input voltage and ground -- which is polarized. Shouldn't the .1uf cap also be polarized?

2. You have an 'extra' .1uf capacitor on the hot (12v) side of the 7805 regulator. So there's a 330uf polarized and 0.1uf nonpolarized. These are to smooth the circuit -- why is the 0.1uf cap here as well? I have seen situations (without the 0.1uf on the 12v input of the 7805) where there is proper voltage but the arduino browns-out (insufficient current). Could my lack of the 0.1uf cap contribute to this?

3. You have an 'extra' 50k resistor on the VSS input: input-->50k--->zener and 50k independently bridge ground). Why is this here? Is there a 12v tendency to cook arduinos on this circuit? (I've seen 12v come in across the vss at times)

4. You have a 0.01uf cap on the VSS -- why? All of these caps appear to be low-pass R/C circuits. Would this have settled down our other poster's Alfa Romeo that had close to 16*10^6 pulses per mile?

Once i know more I will start soldering together a prototype board with the 7805, and vss/fuel in channels. The design will be to use the adafruit button/LCD shield on an Arduino Pro Mini (and a tinycurtcits arduino) both of which are 3.3v 8MHz 328s. Then I'll post my results here.

Also, t_vago and meelis11: Why, oh why is there an array of 2 .22pf capacitors and a 16MHz crystal (q1) connected to GND (pin 8), AGND (pin 22), 9 and 10 (PB6/XTAL1TOSC1 and PB7/XTAL2/TO8C2)? The ATMEGA328 already has an onboard clock, and so without any code changes, this part of the circuit would be ignored, correct?

fDevelopment back on track. I've managed to duplicate an MPGuino using a 3.3v board, which is necessary to transmit data to the pi without a voltage converter like this one.

I kept frying Arduino Pro Minis -- or so I thought. I gave up on that particular board but I suspect the on-board voltage regulator was overheating. When I switched development to a tinycirctuits tinyduino, the results were much different. In short, it worked as expected.

The first piece of the puzzle is a car-to-board interface. I used a blank prototype board and based the circuit on meelis' 3 resistor design:



Then I soldered the necessary pins to the tinyduino prototype board, letting me quickly connect and disconnect the board using the 28-pin connector. This makes updates super simple.



Since this is still a prototype (I still need to perfect the interface board), I bundled the two pieces (now connected) to a raspberry pi. I used this particular case for the pi as there are few opportunities for a short circuit.

I put the entire thing behind the stereo head unit:
and then sealed it all up (well, I pushed the stereo unit back into position):


Very clean, very professional looking, no more wires sticking out of the side off the dash. The two small looms you see allow me to connect to the Adafruit LCD shield for tank resets and any other housekeeping. I also wired up the Adafruit's reset button, which forces the tinyduino to reset the LCD, which doesn't work well if it's connected to an already-running arduino. (The adafruit buttons can't be used to reset the backlight, as they seem to need to be provisioned or addressed at boot time. (I think this has to do with the i2c bus).

My next order of business is: Leverage the program's internal timer to vary the JSON output every couple of seconds. For example, every two seconds the 'subtitle' on the bottom graph could cycle between displaying drag race data, tank/trip data; or primary and extended drag race data. I see a number of timers scattered throughout the code, so I'll use them as a template. This will address a primary limitation of the JSON/Pi approach, limited screen real-estate.



I've taken my own functions (a copy of the doOutputJSON function, plus a blink function) and I can drop them into newer code revisions as I continue development. This should keep me far from the dreaded code fork.

Clean shield, better code

Here's the finalized v1 pi shield. The tinyduino attaches at the top and can be easily unplugged from the shield using the cartridge-style connector.



It includes both a 3.3v and 5v regulator, as the Tinyduino needs to run from a 3.3v source in order to have the tx pin put out 3.3v. Even though it's a 3.3v board, it will accept 5v, run at 5v and if given a 5v source, will put out 5v on the Tx pin, which will cook the rx pin on the pi. This design avoids the need for a logic voltage converter.

There is lots of Kapton tape in this design, as the 3.3v regulator has a very unusual design -- the center pin is the output voltage, and so the heat sink at the top is also the output voltage. To avoid bridging this with the ground on the 7805 5v regulator, I wrapped the 3.3v heart sink with Kapton tape. The picture above shows a mica shield, but the mica eventually tore away from the pins at the bottom (hey, they're fragile) and would freely rotate around the hole cap. Exit, mica, enter Kapton.

Tinycircuits also includes a physical extension shield, which is then connected via a AWM 20624 80C 60V VW-1 32-pin FFC Flexible Flat Cable. Unfortunately, the stock Tinycircuits cable is a bit short, about 5 inches. But, it does help. (See ribbon cabler on this older design):


I will get a screen shot of the DRAG READY, etc. readout on the Pi. It's quite handy.

Question: Is anyone else still active on this thread?

Acceleration screen

Note 3rd graph title for drag status. Drag does not end until both full speed and distance are reached.

Hypermiler use:
Accelerate as slowly or smoothly as possible
Try and keep total fuel used as low as possible
View results for half-speed, full-speed and full distance, in both fuel use form and total fuel form. Results in 3rd graph subtitle

Speed demon use:
Drive it like you stole it
Do not crash at 1/4 speed, consider using .1 mile instead
View times, and how much fuel you wasted. Or, compare to hypermiler run
Results in 3rd graph subtitle





View results after completion of race.
Persists until next race or until Arduino is restarted.

Hi skybolt
Lately I have not had much time, but sometimes I cross the forum, today was one of those days and undoubtedly a fantastic job.
Congratulations on this great work.

I was watching a video on YouTube and crashed into another video that seemed interesting to me.
I think with the lcd of these may be to increase the level of MPGuino even more, making graphics more attractive and easy to use.
