Hi every one ! Jay is my name and Western Australia is where I'm from. Arduino is something I'm yet to grasp and I have a very basic knowledge of electronics so please forgive me if I don't figure things out the first time around.
In a nutshell I'm trying to find out if its possible to use Ardunio to build a small instrument panel to use in a large RC 2 stroke car and boat. Basically, it would consist of a single lcd display that displays real time speed ( via gps?) RPM ( optic or pulse) , Temperature ( via thermocouple or IR) and an hour meter all at once, with some sort of memory recall to display maximum temp, rpm and speed if possible.
I can do this with a portable GPS, digital tacho , digital temp meter and a digital hour meter but all of these items together add considerable weight and are quite big and bulky.
If this is possible to build with Arduino I'd love a few pointers to get started but I don't expect anyone to tell me exactly what to do step by step as I do enjoy figuring things out my self.
All the best, Jay
