A while ago i made a comment that i thought i could make a T4, as a proof of concept i wrote a software package to emulate the T4, it worked reasonably well on my test bench so i took a copy of my "T4 Server" software to the Milton Keynes meeting today and tried it out :DD

If performed as well as expected on a diesel so i tried it for the first time on a V6 and it it flew through the engine management system, reading live data, reading and clearing faults without any problem at all!
The other ECU's didnt pose a problem either, so far so good, however as windows is not a real time OS its not the ideal platform so the next step is to transfer my source code over to an embedded device to test a hardware module which should give me the response times required.

Not sure when this will be started but its a very interesting project!

My test bench (on my sofa) is a diesel version and running the software on this was fine, i could reflash the ECU upto about 80% before another thread took priority, caused a delay in comms and it fails :(
As you probably know the T4 receives its ethernet frame, unwraps it, transmits, receives, wraps it back up and sends it out again all in a few milliseconds! I am averaging about 200 ms process time from when the frame is received, processed and transmitted back again. However some of the DDE4 responses can take 2 or 3 seconds so these have to be identified and the thread put to sleep for awhile, not a good practice!

The embedded developers kit i have should be able to handle everything, i know an embedded developer who is willing to help, he develops the firmware for electronic steering.

Sounds brilliant. What will this mean to us normal bods? Eventually will we be able to buy a 'T4ish' to play with our own cars?

Sure thing, and then people will start playing around with home-brew software, fuck up their cars, blame us Enthusiasts and/or T4 operators, and so on...
