1989 Honda Civic DX Hatchback

Embedded Systems

I'm going to add some more electronics to my car. It already has electronic controled fuel injection (Honda's PGM-FI), but that's not enough for me.

I've been brainstorming with new ideas (best ones here):

Here is a list of what I'm planning in order of expected completion:

Security System

Since my car was broken into and the stereo stolen (JVC KD-LX3 serial #10490138), I have suspened work on the HUD to build a security system. Code and general info for the first microcontroller based version is now available.

Embedded System

This section is very messy and the design is mostly undocumented right now. That likely won't change until I have time and a better clue. There are many possibilities that I must explore.


The computer might be added well in the future, but I'm not really sure. I'll just leave the possibility for it open right now.
