So what is this?

I like cars. I like electronics. My stereo got jacked from my car and it is old (1994), which means its missing a lot of stuff that cars have now. Since I get bored easily, I need lots of projects to keep me occupied. I saw the raspberry pi and I like node, so I figured, what the hell, I'll build it all. So far here's what I'm planning on adding:

  • media player (probably just audio, maybe streaming through my phone)
  • gps and nav
  • climate control
  • proximity sensors
  • front and rear cameras
  • door lock control
  • window control
  • automatic lights

Needless to say this will be a lot of work and fairly expensive. I plan on having the pi read from all the following sensors, maybe from an arduino with a firmata on it communicating via johnny-five. Still working out the kinks. I plan on adding the following sensors to communicate with the pi

  • proximity sensors (debating ir or sonar) on all 4 corners
  • compass
  • gps
  • 3 axis accelerometer
  • temperature
  • light sensor

Keep watching. I plan on trying to produce what I learn from this in kit form, so keep an eye out.
