    Lightbulb My Z-Car cockpit CarPC project

    Hi all,
    I would like to indroduce to you my personal project, the Z-Car cockpit project. This project aims to replace standard dashboards by LCD screen(s). There are some photos of it, but you cand find more information like videos into the official site : http://zcarcockpit.free.fr
    Sorry about my english translation, i'm a french guy and I've done it the better i could...





    And here a screenshot :


    I've put some videos in youtube (but in the site you could find them in better resolution) just click to see :
    Video 1 : Car stopped, system start, stop, showing basic functions...
    Video 2 : In the city
    Video 3 : On the road

    Your opinions will be very useful to me, so let me know !

    Thank you !

    Thank you, but it is not yet finished. I'm only at the first stage of the project : to reproduce at least the same behaviour that the original counter. Now I can have fun with it and i'm working on Knight rider skin and on personal skin plus other new functionalities (cf website).

    How does this interface with the car? Where is it pulling the signals for the guages etc from? OBDII?

    Please, go visit the website, most of the ansers you're requesting are there : http://zcarcockpit.free.fr.

    There is no OBDII into such an old car : all the sensors are analogical, so I had to plug on them all through a home-made signal converter card to some I/O cards into the PC.

    Wow!

    That is unreal. I'd be interested to see the whole I/O card arrangement you have setup.
    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.

    Sorry but explain all that in english may be a little too long for me.
    The cards I used are IO cards found on the Internet electronic sellers web sites (here in France). Into the website there are more global details.
