  • Open-source car gauge and HUD based on Arduino

    The VirtuDash project aims to provide car lovers a low-cost, customizable and programmable car gauge with open-source hardware and software. The hardware is based on Arduino, the open source electronics prototyping platform and a modified ELM327 compatible adapter which connects cars’ OBD-II (standard interface for most cars manufactured after 2000) and the Arduino board.

    I'll ping Vitaliy on this, he should make his own adapter in the same form factor as this one. He already has a TTL obd2 board, just needs the nice tiny package and connector

    Your website doesn't list links for the hardware for people to build their own, so I did some searching.

    The OBD2 adapter is made by arduinodev (http://www.arduinodev.com/hardware/obd-kit/) for $50
    The LCD shield is sold by DFRobot. Not sure who actually makes it (http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?rou...product_id=347) for $24
    Of course, the Arduino is sold by sparkfun (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/11021) for $30

      You are smart. But if you read carefully who is the author of this post, you should have no doubt about this kit.

        I have no doubts about the quality of the components, but for those of us who already have Arduinos and TTL obd2 boards laying around, the screen shield would be nice. That's the main thing I was searching for

          I am the maker of this adapter (I am not selling other people's products). I am also the developer and maintainer of the open-source OBD-II library for arduino on SourceForge.
          You are always welcome to make your own.
          Lastly, Arduino board is not necceaarily sold by Sparkfun. Sparkfun is only one of the vendors. I have connection with DFRobot and get the board and the shield directly from them.
