Some problems with the previous version (1.0) that I aimed to fix are the following:
- My knee would often hit the Arduino
- The combiner was rather high in my field of vision
- My hand sometimes obstructed the display when using my turn signal
One thing I don't like about the new setup is that my bad engineering skills created a suction cup right in the middle of my field of vision:
|Driver's view, notice left suction cup considerably higher than the right|
|Arduino and Lens|
|Arduino in a cardboard case|
|Support for the combiner mount provided by|
white plastic rods (cut from plastic hangers)
I'm not convinced that this design is better than version 1.0, but it does get the job done.
Be on the lookout, version 2.0 is in the building stage right now with lots of upgrades!
