I'm just planning a rather ambitious project, without boring everyone with too much detail here's roughly what it will do...
12v automotive project read car sensor data directly from OEM sensors, speed, rpm, throttle pos etc actuate throttle with a servo, lights, horn etc control lots of PWM RGB LEDs control LCD display, and 7seg HUD (may use a seperate arduino mini pro for this unit) take input from several buttons
possibly.. rfid reader bluetooth/wifi connection
So what at the pros and cos of the Due Vs the Mega?
Will I need the extra processing power of the Due? Will the Due have a higher standby current than the mega? (it will be on while my ignition is off) Will the Mega be better for interfacing with a wider range of sensors? 5v Vs 3.3v
So far the Mega looks like the better option to me, but can the Due do anything the Mega can't that I would need for this project?
