    '04 Fiat Punto.. Work in progress...

    So i finally decided to share the details of my project with the forums..

    CarPC Spec:
    • 1.2GHz EPIA Mini-ITX
    • M1-ATX PSU
    • 7" In Dash Motorized Touchscreen
    • USB GPS Receiver
    • 12" Wi-fi antenna
    • 2x 4ch Audio Amplifiers (Yes i know a 6ch or a 4ch + a 2ch would have worked but i got a good deal!)
    • 2x Pioneer 150W (35W RMS) Front Components
    • 2x Bog Standard Rear Components
    • 1x Sony 1100w (300W RMS) 10" Sub


    Pictures coming soon...

    Still To Do...
    • Integrate car with CarPC.. (see below!)
    • Replace those pioneer's with something a little more powerful..



    Integrate Car with PC...

    What i want the PC to be able to control:
    • Windows
    • Door Locks
    • Ignition System


    What i want the PC to 'know':
    • Hand Brake Position - Ability to disable certain functions when car is moving.
    • Engine RPM - Auto adjust volume as engine gets louder.
    • Current Gear
    • Fuel level


    Miscellaneous Ideas
    • Car Tracker - Have GPS co-ords being transmitted over GPRS when car is on the move.
    • Biometrics - Replace Locking barrels with fingerprint sensors.. droole...

    Nice to see you have it all planned out. Any recent progress?

    By the way, I just realized that your car is a "Fiat Punto". Do you know what "punto" means in Spanish? It's funny how manufactures overlook stuff like this.

    Point?

    perhaps you are thinking of "puto" or "puta"?
