RF keyfob remotes for adhoc steering wheel controls?
I had a quick look and hadn't seen anyone mention this before...
I would like to have steering wheel controls for FrodoPlayer or MediaCar or whatever, and my car does not have existing steering wheel controls for me to hack into.
What I was thinking was using one or two RF keyfob remotes mounted on the steering wheel. These could be hooked up to the PC through the serial port, or through a microcontroller hooked up to the serial port.
I know you can get IR steering wheel controls, but then I would also need an IRMan or some sort of IR receiver for my PC. And I just think IR sucks... :P
