Tesla and AutoPi

Does anyone have experience with AutoPi on Tesla?

I can think of some nice additional use cases for Tesla cars. Sure, the cars are already connected and can do a lot on its own, but with an Autopi connected you’re not restricted by what Tesla can think of and/or want to present to you.

@autopi: I’ve got a Model 3 in Aalborg, if you need something to hack on :wink:

Hi @jensk,

Good to hear from you again.

Its definitely possible to use the AutoPi with the Tesla.

A good way to get started would be to simply import the DBC files to the library, and then setup the loggers you want.

We are always up for a test drive, but if you want to test it on your own, then just send me a DM and I’ll send you the DBC files needed for testing this.

Hi Peter

Thanks, and likewise good to get back with AutoPi. Kind of lost interest with the AutoPi/Toyota, but a Tesla is a whole different and much funnier story :smiley:

First step is to get an OBD adapter, as the Model 3 has only a proprietary CAN bus connector (they got a waiver for OBD, as there are no emission data to read out). I’ve ordered an adapter, but not received it yet. Once I get it set up and tested, I’ll get back to you guys.

Regards,
Jens Kristian

Jens,

I am keen to support this work. I can probably get access to a model 3for testing. What adaptor did you buy ?

This one:

Just arrived, but I haven’t found time to play with either the BT OBD adapter/ScanMyTesla or the AutoPi yet.
