Hey everyone, I have another crazy project.....
Over the past 3 weeks I have been working on a digital dash project.
As of now I am only working on the software side, eventually I will have to make changes to fit whatever screen I end up using
The Program is called Processing, which is a type of java.
I have the program running and talking to an Arduino board. The program takes values from the Arduino and applies it to the gauges. As of right now I have a screen hooked up with a menu so I can pick the value I want to send. Eventually sensor data will be polled and sent.
Once I have have the ground work done I'll be making quite a few different dashboard types that can be selected though the dash menu system.
I posted a a few pics and 2 videos. I have more work done, but I don't have permission to use this person's image I used so I'll post more as I redraw it.
The font is wrong, but I will change that later. Anyone know the name of the font?
eventually I will have it installed in the car (maybe by the show in July, I'm hoping)
The fade in looks choppy in the youtube video, it doesn't look like that in person.
Digital dash startup
Digital dash with 95mph Back to the future speedometer.
p.s. Does anyone have any high res shots of the prototype dash? I want to model it as a working dash. I have quite a few pictures but I cannot get enough detail on it.
thanks for looking
