Car UPS for Raspberry Pi

It would be interesting do develop a simple and inexpensive board for Raspberry Pi that allows you to run the Raspberry Pi in your car. It needs to start when ignition is turned on and turn off/shutdown gracefully and finish it's processing when ignition is turned off. Additionally, some charging would be helpful to allow it to finish processing or for emergency use.


- Needs 1 board

    Hi Joel,

    Do you really need a TAPAS board to do this ? Aren't there cheaper solution already available?

    Best Regards,
