More progress on the BatBerry software

Neither Tim Neil, his vehicle, or Research In Motion (BlackBerry) are licensed by, endorsed by, sponsored by or affiliated with DC Comics or the owners of the “Batman” properties.  Tim Neil’s vehicle is also not licensed by, endorsed by or sponsored by Research In Motion (BlackBerry).

Ok.. so now that we have the formalities out of the way.. let’s take a look at the app 🙂

I’ve been making some pretty good progress on the software for my BlackBerry 10 device that will connect to the Arduino board via Bluetooth to control the systems of the car.  I’ve been building all of the software using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 to create the BlackBerry 10 look and feel.

First up was creating an initial home screen which I thought would be a fun place for the BatBerry logo and a small little database of villains and contacts that Bruce Wayne may need.  From there you can check out the details of each person using a little JSON file I’ve added which contains their information.

You can also use different tabs to navigate around from the settings area where you pair the software via Bluetooth to the car, and also get into the systems section that has all the controller logic.

I added some action items to do things like turn on/off the afterburner, raise and lower the suspension and 30cals, as well as open and close the canopy.  I’m sure I’ll find some more things to add to the list, but I figured this was a good start.  Next up will be tackling the Bluetooth connection and then trying my hand at the Arduino scripting to control the connected relays.
