This is a super-future task, but jawillis and I think it'd be really cool if you could script IOIO outputs. It'd be even cooler if you could script them in pitside, then transmit the script to the phone during a race. Cool doesn't mean 'safe' or 'smart', but it'd be sooo awesome.

Imagine active aero:
if(accel < 0 or abs(latGs) > 0.4) // if we're braking or turning...
{
  runOutput(14,true); // put wing to maximum angle of attack
}
else
{
  // going straight or accelerating...
  runOutput(14,false); // put wing to maximum flatness for max speed
}


Of course, this would be an advanced feature on top of an already-advanced feature (the IOIO), so this is uber-low-priority.

Fans could be turned on based on temperature, etc. I see this being a really useful feature for the future.

The feature request list is growing so fast. And I haven't even submitted all mine yet.

I am strongly in-favor of this feature as a dream feature (i.e. not anytime soon). Other possible uses:
- start/stop camera recording when entering track area
- incorporate driver-feedback devices other than the android touch screen (warning lights, buzzers, LED bar-graph displays)

Very cool, but not sure I'd want to run anything mission critical off of it like fans or anything in case it goes down or batttiery drain. Or whatever.
