Bicycle Dashboard on the Web using a #RaspberryPi

Jeremy Blythe has been busy. He’s created a live web bicycle dashboard using his ControlMyPi project. The Pi is carried onboard his bike and then he uses a combination of

  • the Raspberry Pi
  • a 3G dongle
  • the Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout
  • and an accelerometer sensor

to update a website with

  • a webcam image
  • a Google map
  • and some gauge-readings for the accelerometer stuff.

A very impressive project. What I’d like to see is a small screen on the bicycle itself so that the rider can view the dashboard, but then he’d have to worry about weatherproofing and that kind of thing.

Here’s his diagram of the project:
