This blog here has some insane ideas for you to ‘Pi Up Your Ride’. If you want your car to be the coolest on the block or have a Raspberry Pi lying around, then read this blog to get you started on something absolutely exciting and bizarre. This blog here, tried to get you addicted to technology, and it really got us hooked!
Carputers, is an amalgamation of a computer and your car. You could create a device, which can be more powerful than a laptop. It tells you how to make use of on-board diagnostics II (OBD-II) to read data from your car, like the oil pressure, particulates being absorbed by the filter or results from the oxygen sensor. I didn’t even know, my car could do that!
You could connect your OBD-II to the screen and get all this info. The code can be found in the link, given below.
Now, here comes the Raspberry Pi. You don’t need a computer sitting next to you, to be able to do all this. You could use a Pi device for all this and more. You could turn it into a Spotify server, have a voice controlled radio, make your own reversing camera, GPS tracker and anything else, you can possible think of.
Give it a shot and tell us what you got! I would like mine to start with voice command. Any ideas how to go about it?
