Raspberry Pi Car Computer: Raspboard

by Lambert Varias

Harrison Kinsley aka sentdex had his Honda S2000 get with the times by installing a dash camera, a diagnostic tracker and more for a little over $100 (USD). Thanks to the Raspberry Pi, a bit of bargain hunting and some programming, Harrison says he may have saved himself about $900.

Harrison placed his computer’s monitor on the left edge of his dash, with the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Camera tucked behind the display in a case.

He can then access his car’s diagnostics using a USB to OBD 2 cable and a Raspberry Pi script called OBD-Pi. From there he can get information like check engine codes and other data that car diagnostic tools dig into.

The beauty of Harrison’s setup is that he can run and automate a variety of add-ons. He said he could even make it so his car can be started remotely or through a voice command. He can Raspberry Pimp his ride in any number of ways. He can evenĀ stream music and play video games on his on-board computer, though the latter is clearly not recommended while driving.
