I am a final year mechanical student at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa.
We are currently tasked with a project of building a three-wheeled electric trike vehicle with Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication via WiFi.
The vehicle we manufacture will have no OBD-||, and, we have to transfer telemetry data such as speed, GPS location and direction of travel to another raspberry device connected to the same WiFi which will be located in another vehicle.
Is it possible to use the Autopi device to allow for vehicle to vehicle communication over the connected WiFi network?..and is the Autopi useful without being connected to an OBD port? How will it be powered or be programmed to use it’s own GPS and Accelerometer Data?
We can implement this separately but, the thought of having such a great dash screen is very much welcomed! And we would love to add multiple functions as the software facilitates it.
Please advise. I thank you for your time in advance.
