Josh, The untouched racecapture logs are named RC_x.LOG, not .CSV, this is important. Try cding to your directory and just typing RC_0.log, notepad should open the (gibberish looking) log file, if it doesn't then make sure you have the name and extension correct. Once you've got it opening like tha...

Glad to know it's not just me. Thanks for checking.

getAnalog(7) does return the battery voltage for me.

Anyone w/ a mk2 on v2.7.8 firmware using getAccel(channel) successfully?

While you could certainly sample the actual steering angle sensor at 100Hz, it very well might not be updating that quickly on the CAN bus. The controller that is directly reading the sensor (BCM?) may be polling it faster than it gets broadcast onto the CAN bus for other controllers (and you) to co...

Tried re-flashing the firmware. Tried v2.7.6 then 2.7.8 again. No success. The function seems to stop at the g = getAccel(1) line. It will print text to the logfile portion of the screen prior to that line, but nothing after.

Any suggestions?

Most will probably be the top result if you Google the acronym followed by "definition". API = Application Programming Interface GPIO = General Purpose Input/Ouput PWM = Pulse width modulation RCP = RaceCapture/Pro (okay, this one probably isn't google-able) I do think it would be helpful for the fo...

First off, thanks for all those who put time and effort into making this script. I copied and pasted Copper280z's script into a new file called rccsv2gems_copper280z.pl then ran the following script at the windows command line: perl rccsv2gems_copper280z.pl RC_0.csv NewFile1 As someone else mentione...

To clarify, here's what I actually tried: setTickRate(30) function onTick() local g = getAccel(1) if g > 0.5 then startLogging() end end After failing to get it to start logging, I tried to simply print the current accel value. No luck there either. Next was to try to...

I thought I read something elsewhere on the forum about custom PIDs not yet being available. Found it: http://www.autosportlabs.org/viewtopic.php?p=22182#22182 No idea if there is a way to create them now by editing certain files. What make/model/year car are you trying to get the data from? Due to ...

For the steering angle sensor, are you sure it is available as a PID? It may be on the vehicle's CAN bus, but not able to be read as an OBD PID.

getAccel function not working mk2 v2.7.8

I've been trying to learn how the lua scripting works, so I thought I'd try to start the logger based on an accel threshold. I copied and pasted the example code: setTickRate(30) function onTick() local arm = getGpio(0) local g = getAccel(1) if arm == 0 then stopLoggi...
