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
- 3 axis accelerometer
- light sensor
Keep watching. I plan on trying to produce what I learn from this in kit form, so keep an eye out.
