OVMS CAN-USB - Call for assistance

As some of you may know, over the past couple of years OVMS has made me passionate about the concept of 'open vehicles', and in particular how smartphone control and monitoring can further the cause of EV adoption. One handicap to this is the expense and difficultly of decoding the vehicle buses.

I've recently launched a new project on github:


Invalid vehicle login alerts

An enhancement was made to the public Open Vehicles server today:

From now on, the first time a vehicle incorrectly logs in (wrong server password) to the server, a PUSH notification alert will be sent to all registered applications for that vehicle. If such a failed authentication vehicle subsequently successfully connects, another notification alert will be sent to indicate that the authentication was now successful.


Open Vehicles will be exhibiting at the TESLIVE conference in San Jose, California, July 12-14, 2013. Experienced OVMS users and developers will be around, with laptops, PICKIT programmers, serial cables and usb-can adaptors for all your needs :-) If you are in the area, now would be a good time to stop by and get that firmware upgrade.

Mark Webb-Johnson, the project lead, will be there, so if you are attending please stop by the booth to say hello, or send us an email if you are in the area and would like to meet-up.
