Re: OpenPlotter project

Well, this is getting really interesting... let's go then!

Let me talk to Vamonos about how we can organize this and I will report.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Anyone else having problems with Rasp Pi2 crashing?

Mine wouldn't last more than a few hours before either hanging or crashing so after digging around in the logs I found a lot of these..

rsyslogd-2007: action 'action 17' suspended, next retry

Google came up with this fix which, fingers crossed, seems to have cured the problem.

Raspberry Pi 3 - YAY!!!

SD card from the Pi2 worked without needing to be touched, exactly the same, but... faster!

That's GREAT news. How much faster? Any way you could post a video comparing the two? Maybe panning a chart?

Have you tested OP v0.6.0? Someone reported malfunctions but without specifying.

I'm pretty sure it's the latest v0.7, I could try v0.6 but probably not for a few days. Going sailing
The only problems I've had were solved re. a few posts ago.

Video uploading now, plus I'll do a link of one not that long ago but before hardware openGl. So much progress with the Pi's so quickly.

I think my cubietruck will stay packed away

I've tried OpenPlotter on an old RPI (1) and it works fine. On a new RPI 3 I have problems with the screen(driver?) My HDMI display is only partly used (square only) and the image shown is a kind of rainbow pattern, and that's the only image shown. My new Pi works well with a standard Raspian or Ubuntu MATE with no problems whatsoever.

Who had idea's what the problem is??

Regards,

Michel.

Re: OpenPlotter project

That means you don't have a sufficient power supply. Under volt warning.

Re: OpenPlotter project

Why they did that rather than a more descriptive icon or text error... That I can't explain.

Hi Saaqara,

Thanks for jumping in but de RPI 3 works perfectly with the other operating systems I did not change anything to the hardware including the powersupply

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hi!

My name is Martin and I am from germany. I am very interested in the OpenPlotter Project, especially in the monitor/ security capabilities.

I know, that is not the core OpenPlotter was designed for, but I guess, here are a lot of people, that have the technical knowledge.
OpenPlotter should run on the boat when I am at home (1,5h to the boat), and alert me in case of abnormal conditions.

The following features I would like to have:

SMS sensor status and alarms
2-4 temperature sensors
humidity sensor
water in bilge sensor
low battery power alarm
shore power off alarm
security alarm (sensors?)
relay switch AC current

Normaly i have WLAN and shore power, but the system should function without for 3 days, without drowing the on board batteries (200Ah).

I am shure technically that can be done, but I am a RPI and Linux idiot. I guess I can configure the RPI, but I am not capable of e.g. phyton scripting.

Any ideas?

best regards,

Martin

Re: OpenPlotter project

Hi,

I am Martin from Germany an especially interested in the boat monitor features.
For the beginning I have two questions:

Is there already a SMS alert function running?
Should I already get the RPI 3 when starting with OpenPlotter?

best regard,
Martin
