microcontroller controlled. DIY HVAC retrofit??
hello forum. i know, that stuff like that has been done before, using fusion brain or other microcontrollers, since i have seen some scattered posts..
what i want to do, is make a HVAC system for my car, that will be controlled by an arduino, (prety much same as with fusion brain), and from there, i will contrroll the arduino via my carpc...
the main problem is, my car does not have any AC at all.. it has an ancient, heated blower, that dosent even work so well.... so i am guessing, my best option would be to get rid of everything, and build a new system using other car parts... (vents, and everything)
Could someone share some detialed info, on the varius parts needed,for a HVAC system??
any previus expariance would be helpfull as well:D
1)so far i have "Figured" , that i should use a servo, to controll, which vents get the air,
2)controll the blower, via a PWM (i think so at least)
but as for how to set the temperature, and what parts are needed for this job, i have no idea... :/
edit: to heat the air, coolant from the engine is used?? this is true for newer cars as well??it seems prety primitive....
