[Preliminary] Crowdfunding campaign

We are working with Crowd Supply, a crowdfunding site with a focus on open-source projects, to bring the Carloop devkit to production.


As the beginning of the campaign gets nearer we will update this post with more information.

Any update on this? The link above gives a 404.

We pulled out of the Crowd Supply campaign and we are preparing for Carloop next gen. Any particular requests for Carloop’s next gen?

Specs please, I can see serious effort into making this, but on the store page looking to make an impulse buy I should be able to tell:

There are different Electron models 2G and two 3G, the picture shows a U260 which is Americas/Aus 3G. On the Electron page it says “We offer two types of Electron 3G Kits” but there isn’t a selection. Confirmation?

It seems like the GPS module is the GP-635T, how does it preform deployed under the dash? If not great, then a uFL breakout as well would be nice. A smarter person than I would be able to use the GPS data, and calibrate a magnetometer and then use it for directional information, not sure the value is there for everyone.

A battery to ‘retain the satellite data’ to help with GPS fix times.

Better Carloop library documentation and marketing, I can look at the code and kinda see what it does. Engine error code explanations, RPM, engine temperature etc. example getEngineCoolantTemp();

Would the Asset Tracker I have be able to work? I haven’t looked at what pins are used.

An accelerometer.

An example trip logging project.

For your consideration, thanks!
