    I vote YES,

    But... A standard will need to be agreed on as to which board or circuit to use.
    Also... would it be possible to use simple boolean functions- for example,
    if you was uing the relays to control fan speed on A/C you could use it to use speed 1 or 2 or 3 but not 1and 2 together, - you get the drift - it would be useful.

    I think that this would be another way of getting the carputrs more integrated with the car and is definitely the way forward
    Of all the things I've ever lost my sanity was the hardest to deal with

    I am going to be making the interior of my project car (the Ford Anglia) around a carputer, so the more I can control from it (within something like ME preferably) will be brilliant.

    I'm pretty flexible so far with which would be a "standard" if that were to be done, as I haven't bought anything like that yet, but obviously the cost can't be too much though


    Anyways, chalk up a vote from me for something like this

    I gotta great idea... i think,

    I believe that where this relay thing started was someone wanted to control their Air Con...
    Well..
    Motherboards if me thinks right have the capability to monitor several temperature sensors.
    Is it possible to use one of these to monitor the climate of the car??
    Then the A/c relay cud be on..ed and off..ed giving... CLIMATE CONTROL??? I know it sounds silly but Hey think about it
