This past semester I took an Arduino programming class. Towards the end of the semester I began thinking of ways that I could learn more about this technology. After watching an episode of West Coast Customs where they built a custom car for Microsoft that used a tablet for the gauge cluster. I decided that building/upgrading the dash in our 2001 would be a cool project. Also the speedometers for our boat are constantly getting clogged so we can never get accurate speed readings. Below is a picture of the Microsoft project.



I'm debating starting with a whole dash replacement that would incorporate a tablet or starting small. If I chose to start small I would modify a current speedometer so that it could house a small LCD touchscreen that would display a speedometer. I could add on fuel reading and air and water temperature. My plan is to use a GPS sensor to calculate speed.

I'll keep this thread up to date with my project status (parts, link to code, etc) throughout the summer.
