I have been wanting to add a feature to my car for a long time its currently an Audi A5 2.0 TDI. I am getting rid of it in the next few weeks and purchasing a new Peugeot e-208. I would like to continue the work and see if I can interface to the new car.
I've printed a bracket for my project which as I mentioned was designed to fit the rear windscreen of the Audi, I will probably need to re-print for the Peugeot. The printed item is a bracket that will fit at the top of the rear windscreen. It holds three rows of RGB neopixels that are connected to a micro-controller. I have various CAN-BUS boards and cables but so far I haven't been very succesful at all in interfacing to the CANBUS. Can I use the resources and products hear to achieve this?
I want to pick up and act on the following:
Left / Right indication
Lights, both side lights and normal lights.
Then depending on which signal is detected my system will create an animation sequence displayed on the three rows of RGB LED's. I started work on this quite a few years ago and its been an on and off project which I've revisited several times, my work was done before Volkswagen, Audi and others started producing LED animations in there cars....
Here are some videos of what I've done on YouTube:
