I have an idea for a car that i am building that that i am going to use an 7" display to show everything that the instrument panel usually does. for that to work the system have to handle a couple of sensors for like the water temp, oil temp, oil pressure, engine rpm, speed, fuel and so on.
The pressure, fuel and temp sensors are just normal variable resistance devices and the engine rpm and the speed are inductive proximity sensors.
It also has to sense the turn indicators, headlights and DRL and the easiest way would be to connect the output from their respective relays to the bord in some way?
my question is, should i go for a gadgeteer or are there other micro controller systems that would be better suited?
i have looked at some other options like:
