Default E36 9possibly E46) rasberry PI project...

Now, been looking to see if there's any fun stuff that could be done with a rasberry pi for my E46, and came across this:

http://digitalcommons.calpoly.edu/cg...&context=cpesp

Instructions and code on someone's university project on making an awron like display unit for the e36 M3.

Figured I'd post it here in case anyone was interested and wanted to give it a go

Wow thats pretty cool. The code doesn't look particularly complicated either. I'm surprised more people don't do stuff like this.

I have been waiting for someone to do something like this on the e36. Great find thankyou so much, however the write up means nothing to me.
Now need to find someone who can do it all for me.

The code could do with some refinement as it's a bit brute force but a good starting point.

It's very neat though, and if there was an obd2 emulator or "stub" code you could just develop this without the need for a car to be present a d without a raspberry pi.

I meant to look into it a bit more but just haven't had time.

The code is pretty simple and I am sure you could add more features easily.

Any competent programmer should be able to run with it. Most of the hard work is kind of done by him in terms of what hardware and the powering off part and the need to just keep the power on a little longer so the rasberry pi can shut down
