Oooohh .... nice. A normal car driving license isn't enough, I presume.

Where is the Arduino?

Nope, you need what is called over here an HR (Heavy Rigid) licence.

There are a couple in there, but they are just for tinkering and have no permanent function. I've been designing a monitoring and control network for it for about 3 years now but I keep getting distracted by other projects smiley

I did finish a digital speedo for it using a Mega644 but not with Arduino code.

I'm about to add 1200W of solar panels, maybe I'll do something to monitor them.

My own expander board:

That is for a 30cm wide board. That is a lot of soldering.  smiley-eek

Been away from the forum for most part of the summer smiley-mad

Bought a new car, the first new car in my life. So much technology.

Also got adafruit Sd card shield, screw shield, nunchuck plug, level shifter, rugged circuits QuadRam, and motor shield. Might be useful for future projects/contract work smiley

Graynomad, having seen your truck photo makes me want something like that too. I don't think my apartment complex garage is tall enough for your truck. Maybe in the future, when I don't worry about things most people worry about, I can get a large vehicle, mod it to my need, and have an adventure, or just park in the woods.

My car regularly reboots while I am driving, I lose power steering, brake servos, engine power, lights, everything. It usually restarts within a minute, but thats enough to kill you if you stall mid junction.
