Just something I'm wondering about. ... y-platform

The PA website seems to be missing the schematic image for the vehicle telemetry project, even though these schematic images are given on the PA website for all the other Practical Arduino projects.

Will this schematic image be available online in the future, or was it just accidentally left out?

I think I ran out of steam by the time I'd got to creating that page!

It was also slightly more complicated because the schematics in the book were broken down into sub-systems, and there wasn't a complete schematic showing everything in one go. It couldn't scale to fit on a page and still be legible.

I've had a look through my files for the book and I can't find those schematics. It's possible that I never actually got those ones, and they went straight to Apress: I drew the schematics by hand originally and scanned them, then Hugh recreated them neatly in gEDA and sent them on. I'll check if he has them available.

Vehicle Telemetry Platform Schematics


I have purchased 'Practical Arduino' and I am very interested in building the Vehicle Telemetry Platform, however I find myself stuck without the schematics. I have looked through ... y-platform and various forums but I cannot find suitable schematics using the ELM327 and GPS as described in the book. I have got myself an EKLM327 chip and various other necessary components but I would appreciate the schematics so I can begin building the project.

Can anyone please provide these schematics?
