I am endeavouring to build a prototype network for my Land Rover Range Rover desert racer hybrid.
Chassis: 1975 Range Rover 100" Wheel Base Engine: 1988 Range Rover 3.5l EFI V8 Roll Cage / Space Frame: FIA Specification 12 point competition cage Body: Land Rover Series 3 Air Portable Custom Lengthened to 100" Wheel Base
The Original Plan
I was interested in using Arduino & Raspberry Pi microcomputers to control the lighting within the cab of my desert racing Range Rover.
I have been experimenting with Arduino, Edison & Raspberry Pi computers running embedded C/C++, Linux & OS X & networking with the aim to build my car network out of many of these devices.
OS X: 3 x Mac Mini or 1 x Mac Pro Devices: 5 Arduinos, Intel Edisons or Raspberry Pis Network Interconnect: Optical networking OM4 MXC InfiniBand
The aim for the project is to build a network that will allow me to control anything within my Range Rover including the 1988 3.5l EFI V8; to be able to do this, I have designed a custom computer for running the V8 engine.
