I'm looking at making my own datalogger for my kart. The parameters I wish to measure are: - Water Temperature - Engine Speed - Lap Time - Brake Pressure - Throttle Position
I want to have a screen which displays the current engine speed (averaged out over a period of 0.5 seconds) and, should the water temperature exceed a predefined value, for the screen to flash red, acting as an alarm.
I also want to have a rechargeable battery as well, if possible.
All the sensors output an analogue voltage; +-10V. The exception is the lap timer, which outputs an electrical pulse when you run over a magnetic strip.
I'd like the data to be written to 2 different .txt or .csv files; 1 for the data, abd the other for lap time.
FYI, I can design and make the case for the arduino, so no need to worry about that.
I was wondering what Arduino hardware would be best for this project?
Thanks In Advance
