  • Volvo-CAN-Gauge

    Reverse engineering the Volvo VIDA protocol and CAN network to gather diagnostic information not available via OBD2 on Volvo cars.

    Volvo C30 Arduino Boost Gauge and CAN Bus Reverse Engineering In his video Alexander Elder shows how he wired in his Volvo a new boost gauge. He found out that the diagnostic software could request the boost pressure. Then he decoded the protocol used on the CAN bus to request this data. To do these requests on the car CAN bus automatically, and to drive the LSD display while he drives his car he used the Macchina M2 (Under-the-Hood). All the code is available in the Volvo-CAN-Gauge repository.

  • zig

    General-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal, and reusable software.

    Testing Zig for embedded development I'm sure you heard about Rust but did you hear about Zig? There is still some work done on the side of embedded software to try to shake up the status quo. Zig is one of these new languages that one should not ignore.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
