A non official port of OpenPilot is up and running. It’s not fully functional, but it covers steering and acceleration (as of 10/2/18 braking now works). Here’s what the hardware setup looks like now.
I mounted the GPS module to the windshield with the 22 degree cover. You can see the grey panda, which is not attached to a Giraffe, but a custom wire harness built by Eric Torgersen. This is needed because the current Nidec Giraffe only exposes 2 of 3 CAN buses. Eric’s wire harness exposes all 3.
This is Eric’s wire harness that I purchased.
Here’s a view from the driver seat.
To get the OpenPilot code for the Clarity use the link below as a guide and substitute the instructions below with the ones in the guide.
Substitute these instructions with the instructions from the guide:
mv openpilot openpilot.stock
git clone https://github.com/clarity-bru/openpilot
git checkout clarity
Remember that this is not an official port. It’s still in development. Use caution when operating your car with OpenPilot.
