The PID Editor contains a reasonably powerful equation editor that allows you to manipulate the incoming data from an OBD device, Sensor, or other data input to the app

Contents

Functions that manipulate data

The equation editor supports the following functions

EWMAF(weight:value)

Exponentially weighted moving average filter - filter noisy signals here. 'weight' should be between 0(more smoothing) and 1(less smoothing)


TAVG(seconds:value)

Timed average. This averages the incoming data for the configured amount of time (in seconds). Data older than the configured time is removed from being averaged


RAVG(value)

Rolling average. This averages incoming values until it is reset. No values are removed from the average until it is reset.


AVG(bucketSize:value)

Point average. This averages incoming values from a bucket of s set size. The bucket can be configured to average a set amount of values, so AVG(10,value) would average the last 10 values


TDLY(seconds:value)

Time based delay - causes data to be delayed by 'seconds' amount before being returned. Returns 0 until data buffer is full


RDLY(polls:value)

Read based delay - data is delayed by X polling loops before being returned


TOT(seconds:value)

Totalizer function based upon difference from time/value


SIN(value), COS(value) ,TAN(value)

Trigonometric functions are supported


LOG(value)

Returns the natural logarithm (base e) of a value


LOG10(value)

Returns the base 10 logarithm of a value


LOG1P(value)

Returns the natural logarithm of the sum of the value and 1


INT(value)

Converts the incoming number to an integer


SQRT(value)

Returns the correctly rounded positive square root of a value.


ABS(value)

Returns the absolute value of the number given


SIGNED(value)

Treats the incoming value as 8bit signed

INT16(A:B)

Returns a 16 bit int from values A and B. Can be used in place of (A*255)+B

INT24(A:B:C)

Returns a 24bit int from the input values

INT32(A:B:C:D)

Returns a 32bit int from the input values

FLOAT32(A:B:C:D)

Returns an IEEE754 float based on the supplied 4 inputs

FLOAT64(A:B:C:D:E:F:G:H)

Returns an IEEE754 float based on the supplied 8 (value:0-255) inputs

MIN(A:B)

Returns the smallest number of A or B

MAX(A:B)

Returns the largest number of A or B

BIT(value:bit)

Returns the bit specified at 'bit' from the 'value'. This function replaces the use of the {value:bit} notation

LOOKUP({VALUE}:{DEFAULT}:{KEY1}{OPERATOR}{VALUE1}:{KEY2}{OPERATOR}{VALUE2}:…etc)

Look up a value from a list of key/value pairs. Can be used to substitute values, reply with a text string, etc

Examples:

String, exact matching, returning a string:
LOOKUP(A::1=’moo’:2=’boo’)

Numeric, exact, with a default of 0 for no match:
LOOKUP(A:0:1=100:2=200:3=300)

Numeric, exact, with a default of the input value for no match:
LOOKUP(A:A:1=100:2=200:3=300)

Numeric, range matching – 0 to 3 = 4 and 4 to 5 = 7:(the 'tilde' character separates the range, not the minus character)
LOOKUP(A::0~3=4:4~5=7)

String, exact matching, returning a string, value is also returned into the PID. The value will be ‘5’ when A is 2, and 4 when A is 1 (the display will show boo and moo however):
LOOKUP(A::1=’moo’:2=’boo’)+3

Mixed matching with strings and numbers (Strings are shown on the display with numbers being passed through to the equation) exact, with a default of the input value for no match:
LOOKUP(A:A:1=100:2=200:3=’this is a test’)

CLOSEST({VALUE}:{DEFAULT}:{KEY1}={VALUE1}....)

Similar to the LOOKUP function, this returns the value which is numerically closest to the key

Examples:

Return 'low' when less than 128 and 'high' when near 255:
CLOSEST(A:A:1='low':255='high')

Functions that generate or retrieve data

RANDOM()

Returns a random number between 0 and 1

BARO()

Returns the barometric pressure from the android device or measured from the vehicle ECU if it supports it in psi
