Make A Display Car Diagnostics Data On PiTFT Touchscreen Display For Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Computer engineer and Adafruit customer, Paul Bartek, created a tutorial to Display realtime engine data on PiTFT touchscreen displays for Raspberry Pi With RaspberryPi
A couple of weeks ago I released a tutorial demonstrating how to turn your
Raspberry Pi and aftermarket head unit into an advanced display for your
This week I will be showing you an affordable and practical alternative than
using an aftermarket head unit to display your data.
Here’s what I came up with! The program will connect through the OBD-II
interface, display the gauges available dependent on the particular vehicle
and display realtime engine data on Adafruit’s PiTFT touchscreen display
in an interactive GUI.
pyOBD (aka pyOBD-II or pyOBD2) is an open source OBD-II (SAE-J1979)
compliant scantool software written entirely in Python. It is designed to
interface with low-cost ELM 32x OBD-II diagnostic interfaces such as
I took a fork of pyOBD’s software from there GitHub repository, https://github.com/peterh
pyobd, and used this as the basis for my program.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
