Libre Car Control

Automotive development platform, protocol analyzer and hacking multi-tool

The Engine Control Unit (ECU) is a microprocessor-based system that receives input from various sensors, analyzes the data, and controls various driving functions based on the input. LibreCar is a small and affordable device which can emulate an actual ECU as an electronic control module that manages control of an automotive vehicle. Acting as an all-in-one device for building, testing, monitoring, and experimenting with Automotive ECUs, LibreCar is built around a unique FPGA-based architecture making its digital hardware fully customized to suit the application at hand. As a result, it can act as a no-compromise Automotive protocol analyzer, an Automotive-hacking multi-tool, or an Automotive development platform. It is a fully reconfigurable test instrument that provides all the hardware, gateware, firmware, and software you will need to work with—and, indeed, to master Automotive domain such as rapid prototyping of compliant and non-compliant Automotive devices, Protocol analysis for Automotive protocols like Diagnostics, XCP and DLT for security research etc.
