Sorry, I'm not a regular here atm, but looking for someone in the North East of England to help with a project - basically digital instrumentation of an old style Mini.
I've got ideas that I was looking at individual circuits for, but from reading about arduino could probably be handled better that way. I'm not totally ignorant (used to be ok with electronic circuits and spent time fitting custom Taxi meters built into rear-view mirrors into cars up to and including Mercs, and have years of experience with Mini's and their electrics) but to be honest can't even think of the learning curve involved. I've already worked out how I want to generate the information from the car (none of this car cpu or canbus malarky needed!) but processing and displaying it is where I need help - things like generating a speed pulse are completely sorted and some of my experience would be relevant to the theory side of it.
I can't directly offer cash for time spent on the project, but obviously would be paying for parts - and being part of a Mini club and going to events, once others see the finished product there may be an opportunity for some reward that way - a couple of the things I want to do might turn out to be popular ideas if they can be put into practice.
Thanks for any interest offered.
