Comfortable parking and parking out
It is much easier to park with parking assistance. It can also prevent any unnecessary collision that would end up costing you a lot of money. It can also be set up as a collision prevention assist and warn you about the situation in front of you, even when you are moving fast such as on the highway.
Audible parking-space measurement
AutoPi can give you voice commands that will give you an overview on how much space you have behind or in front of your vehicle. But there is more to that.
Audible alarms from the built in speaker in the AutoPi can warn you about objects you cannot see. Even voice notifications can be given.
No more annoying repairs caused by bumps and scrapes
If you connect your HUD display and parking sensors to AutoPi, it is possible to see the surroundings on the HUD display in real-time.
Some steps on how you can achieve this:
Firstly, you can basically use external microphone that can be connected to AutoPi via an integrated USB, as long as it is compatible with Raspberry Pi. Furthermore, you will need to get a few supplies to complete this task. You will need; AutoPi TMU device. External microphone (With an integrated USB).
AutoPi TMU device.
External microphone (With an integrated USB).
Get your external microphone and insert it to your AutoPi TMU device.
Go to your AutoPi Dashboard on AutoPi Cloud, integrate the Google Assistant SDK with your AutoPi TMU device.
You should now be able to speak a command to your device, using the USB microphone, and then send the recorded action to Google for parsing. The device initiates the action, based on the result from Google.
The speaker application from your device, parses the text string and initiates the action found from the string, in this case the OBD subsystem. The OBD subsystem routine is triggered and it sends a command on the CAN bus through the ODB port.
Lets say that your command is to roll down the window. The window in your car rolls down. The speaker subsystem routine is triggered. It sends the text to be spoken to Google to translate it into a sound file. Google returns the sound file, and speaker subsystemplays the sound file to the user.
Congratulation, you are now able to create all types of cool action for your car. Be creative and enjoy your new car.
