knight rider replica with wandboard

Postby blauerben1984 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 12:31 pm

I want to start a project to realize my childhood dream and consider whether this is with one or more Wandboard single board computers and other Wandboard hardware is implemented.
I want to recreate a Knight Rider Kitt Replica that is able to do some things by computer technology and could also do the Fictitious wonder car Kitt from Knight Rider series of the 80s. I send a list of functions which should have the vehicle.
My question is, if most of it is possible with Wandboard computers and a lot of other required hardware and software, and if I might get possibly from Wandboard various software and hardware that can perform the functions. Another question is which operating system is best suited. As far as I know are Linux and Android. I incline rather to Linux.
My idea is possible to use multiple single board computer. A red only for Internet and Medial things and one only for the voice modulator that graphically speaking 3 LED driving strokes. Background is that the 3 strokes should only move when the vehicle speaks and not when music or other Soundfils be played.
For tips and ideas on whether this project is to be implemented with Wandboard, what do I need for Hardware and whether this hardware is supported by Wandboard, and gives it the suitable software for Wandboard and where can I get everything I needed and what is the approximate price for it. I would be very grateful.
Finally, still take a very specific question to the audio in / on the car will be 4-6 microphones, give it an audio interface for Wandboard that can record at the same time 4 to 6 audio tracks? Background: Each a micro will be left and right of the door mirrors, one on the rear and 2 microphones in the interior, driver and passenger side and maybe even one in the front of the engine compartment outside. Because, I think too complex and expensive would be that only the micro is steer onwards near to a person. I just want to control everything when recording and delete any subsequent unneeded traces by myself.

Hello blauerben1984.

Not all the things are possible.
But a great part of your objectives are possible.

A button to start/stop the engine is possible

If you want the three leds flashing when the car talks excluding musica or other voice áudio, yes its possible.

Video playback is possible, yes with a 7" touch screen!

Auto cruise. Sorry, this point only if some college or an MIT, Google or something like that, developing an auto-cruise. Besides that, only a car with cruise control.

Auto window, yes its possible. Auto door, would have to rebuild the car.

I woul consider Amateur radio at the CB. But it's my personal opinion. and it is possible to create an auto-voice TX, to transmit on the desired frequency.

Fingerprint, yes its possible. Even to make logon.

And much more is possible to realize. Not all the things. But many of them.

Feel free to talk about this with me.

Thanks for your answer. It's important to know which is the best operating system for such an implementation in question. And if it works with an audio interface and multi-track recording. As if there was an audio interface for wall board which is at least 4 lanes receives, which is also recognized by wandboard.
