Software update on the 20th of December - Configurable dashboard

We have pushed a new release that contains the following changes.

  • Optimized CAN analyzer
  • Improved events view.
  • Added summary on trips page.

AutoPi Core

Event changes:

  • Better grouping of events. The folloing events have been renamed:
    • ‘battery/*’ -> ‘vehicle/battery/*’
    • ‘engine/*’ -> ‘vehicle/engine/*’
    • ‘position/*’ -> ‘vehicle/position/*’
    • ‘power/*’ -> ‘system/power/*’
    • ‘minion/*’ -> ‘system/minion/*’
    • ‘release/*’ -> ‘system/release/*’
  • New: Trigger event ‘system/device/ec2x/gnss/assist_data_updated’ when GNSS assist data is updated.
  • Included system uptime duration in ‘system/power/<sleep | hibernate | restart>’ events.

Command changes:

  • Added new command ‘obd.connection’ that can be used to set STN baudrate manually.

Other fixes and improvements:

  • Improved OBD connection stability and error handling to ensure ‘vehicle/engine/running’ is triggered correctly.
  • Adjusted inactivity sleep timer to power off faster (30min -> 5min).
  • Fix: Turn off accelerometer when going into hibernation.

NB, auto updates are currently disabled, but will be enabled again soon.
Currently the update takes quite a while to finish, and it will restart the services running on the device. So please be patient when installing the updates, it should finish by itself, or retry on errors.
Let us know if you experience any issues.

As always, any comments etc are welcome!
