Hello,
I would like to announce my newest project called OpenAuto.


What is OpenAuto?
OpenAuto is an open source AndroidAuto(tm) headunit emulator application based on aasdk library and Qt libraries. Main goal is to run AndroidAuto(tm) on the RaspberryPI 3 board computer smoothly.

Demo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9tKRqIkQs8

Status
Project is currently under beta testing.

Links and open source code
https://github.com/f1xpl/openauto

Features
  • 480p, 720p and 1080p with 30 or 60 FPS
  • RaspberryPI 3 hardware acceleration support to decode video stream (video stream up to [email protected])
  • Audio playback from all audio channels (Media, System and Speech)
  • Audio input for voice commands
  • Touchscreen and buttons input
  • Bluetooth
  • Automatic launch after device hotplug
  • User-friendly settings

Supported platforms
  • Linux
  • RaspberryPI 3
  • Windows

Before you start using OpenAuto please read Readme and wiki page. Also check OpenAuto Pro.

I'm trying to compile it, but I got a bit rusty in building under linux.

Code:
[  6%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/autoapp.dir/src/autoapp/Main.cpp.o
In file included repos/android-auto/openauto/src/autoapp/Main.cpp:19:0:
repos/android-auto/openauto/include/f1x/openauto/autoapp/USB/USBMain.hpp:22:40: fatal error: f1x/aasdk/USB/USBWrapper.hpp: No such file or directory
 #include <f1x/aasdk/USB/USBWrapper.hpp>

Did I forget something when configuring with cmake?

Hi! First of all, thank you for bring us this post! Amazing :) I've the same question as another guy here, Could you post the Windows binaries or link to the step by step to get it running under windows?
Thanks a lot in advance! :)

Seriously impressive, great work.

Works perfectly on my Pixel 2/PI3.

Thanks for your feedback. Great to see it working :).

Do you think it would be possible to get Android Auto Wireless functionality at a later point? Or does this require some specific wireless/bluetooth protocol that Google hasn't released just yet?

I think it will be possible but needs some time and effort to implement it. OpenAuto is a hobbyist project and I cannot promise the exact deadline but this feature is on the TODO list.

What can you do with the bluethoot feature ?

What do you mean?

I wasn't sure how much of Android Auto is "open" to use. I haven't invested too much time looking into these forks like Auto and Wear but I know they're not quite as public as standard Android. At least that is the take I have gotten over the past few years.

Hopefully it's something that won't require some sort of specific hardware. Best of luck! I hope to test this out on my Pi 3 in a few weeks myself. I'll be sure to keep tabs on the project!

I promise I'm not one of those XDA ETA/update zombies. ;)

Woohoo!! Thank you for this effort!

I'm curious which hardware, aside from the Pi, has been used successfully so far? Is that the Raspberry Pi Foundation touch display? Any HATs?

Thanks again!

Only Raspberry PI 3 has been tested so far in case of embedded platforms. Code itself is portable for any Linux-based or Windows platforms. If hardware acceleration of video decoding is supported by underlying backend used in Qt multimedia library (GStreamer for Linux and DirectShow for Windows) then OpenAuto will run smoothly without additional effort. If hardware acceleration is not supported by underlying backends then it must be implemented in OpenAuto (like in case of Raspberry PI 3).

I apologize, I meant in addition to the Pi, not alternative platforms. Things like which screen is it that you've used, any HATs on your Pi, etc. ?

Thank you!

Screen is the official one from PI Foundation (7''). Basically any screen should be suitable to run OpenAuto (as long as it is supported by the OS that hosts OpenAuto). The same for other hardware.
