        Looks to me to be heat (temp). Wonder if there is fan control also.

          Looks like he used a Basic Stamp for his servo control. The cheap way to do it is with a servo controller:

          If you use one of those, you don't need to do anything special, just write a simple program to run the servos.

            PhongZ: A metal bending machine is called a "brake". You can build one fairly inexpensively if you can weld. There are plans to build them available for free at various places online.

            Anyone interesting in controlling some servos inexpensively for their carpc projects might want to check out Phidgets.. They have an activex control that's very easy to use if you are not much (or not at all) a programmer, or you can also program them directly.

                Basic stamp 2 control’s all servos and reads the temperatures from car and sends it back to the pc and the pc checks if there is any need of turning up the heat….
                Still buggy but it works.
