Real gauges to gauges on the screen?
Hi to everyone!
After a lot of reading in the this useful forum, it is the time to write my first post.
I have an idea for a Chevrolet 1976. The in-dash gauges which are really analog need to be replaced with the carputer's display. However I don't want to lose them, so my idea is to make them the same, but on the screen and to be "alive" :). The place is in the middle of the dash, between the front seats. They are 5 how I said only analog, driven by voltage :). What I know is that I need first 5 ADC with an external controller which communicates with the carputer's motherboard ( for example via COM port). After that I need an application for Windows that should "see" the data from the external controller and to make the gauges working according to the data. The idea is when the car starts, to start the screen and the application, which will simulate the real dash and gauges.
Is it possible to be created a plug-in for Centrafuse for this purpose? I will take a picture of the dash with good resolution and good quality , so that the application will look like the real dash.
Give me an advice! I officialy apologize about my english :) !
