Car Entertainment System with engine management

Unread postby AVKarl » Mon Jul 03, 2017 10:46 am

I figured I'd share what I got going this weekend. I've had my car running with the HVAC controls and engine readout, but was very excited to get the XU4 running with Android and Shadowdash.

Specs:
1993 Volkswagon Corrado SLC
Megasquirt 2 Extra engine Management
AMX NI-700 that controls HVAC, and Volume control.
Odroid XU4 Triple booting Android, Ubuntu and Recalbox.

Very interesting project!
I want to learn how you did wire the complicated interfaces.

You, sir, are a legend. Typing in a shell while driving :D
What is the linux program that monitors your engine status?

I have been meaning to draw up all the hardware components mostly for my own sake. When I do I'll post it here.

I was parked when I rebooted into linux ;)

I use Megasquirt for my car ECU. It's really a great way to learn how a engine works and it will help you perfect soldering if you build it yourself. Megaquirt is tuned with EFI Tunerstudio in Linux so I can use my XU4 to live tune which is awesome! In Android EFI has the Shadowdash app which is what you see in the beginning of the video. It allows you to monitor everything and also datalog, but no tuning in Android yet.

Hi, I know this thread is starting to age. What screen is that? I got the VU7 for my project but that looks much bigger. I'll search how to triple boot before I ask you. I'm going to boost my Suzuki, forged internals and will be tuning also. Nice to see it's possible!

I'm using the VU8C. I don't have the back on and have run the USBs and HDMIs into the grove box where my XU4 resides.
