Main function of this setup is:
Inspired by some dashboard computer projects on the internet, I started my
own project a few years ago.
The first version of my caputer is built as an
additional case on top of the center console and the computer based as on a
laptop was placed in the trunk.
The second version uses a motorised
flip up TFT screen. The computer is stowed under the passensers seat.
Please note: This system was designed for the enjoyment of my passengers.
Whilst driving I concentrate only on driving (unless I'm in a drive thru, parking
lot or ferries).
- Navigational information with online update
- Tracking and visualizing of car internal information (e.g. driven
distance, temperature monitoring etc.)
- Multimedia system, in addition to the current Radio/CD system playing CD,
DVD, MP3 etc.
- Last but not least a simple mobile PC.
On this base I can run any programs that will run on an Intel/AMD i686
