The TeslaRR Vehicle Control Module (VCM) is a custom designed processor module that fits in place of the original 'Driver Information Panel'. It provides visual notifications to the driver on its integrated LCD display, but also accepts user input over a secure wifi connection from a registered Smartphone.
As well as providing a user interface to the new EV functions, the VCM also manages multiple interfacing tasks that link the Rolls Royce vehicle electronics to the EV subsystems, including:
Gear selector monitoring (Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive)
- fuel gauge
- temperature gauge
- rev counter
Cruise control interfacing
Parking Brake control
Brake pedal monitoring
Brake pressure monitoring
HVAC control interfacing
Tyre Pressure Monitoring
Ignition key monitoring (Arm/Disarm/Authenticate )
Charge port monitoring
Charge port door release
Door monitoring and locking
Charge rate selection
Cabin illumination (LINbus)
Multiple user accounts may be setup, allowing vehicle preferences to be personalised. When a user is added from the login screen, account login information is displayed as a QR code on the VCM display. The login screen can be accessed using the wifi access credentials and URL also displayed as a QR code. For security reasons, QR codes are displayed for a limited time after the ignition is turned on with the Master Key, but not the valet key.
The TeslaRRVCM app is wide screen enabled, so it works with Android rear view mirror dashcams to provide a discreet telematics upgrade, with features such as GPS Navigation, 4G wifi hotspot, reversing cam, Bluetooth handsfree phone, dashcam, lane departure warning and more.
Audio output is via an integrated FM transmitter so original radios can be retained.
