Arduino Controlled Fia Vsc Oled Screens.

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm sure most of you have now seen the virtual safety car screens that now feature at all fia sanctioned races.

 

Well using micro oled screens and some clever sketch work these will soon be available to use on your slot car track,at present it will only work with Ssdc and pclapcounter if someone would be willing to rework the sketch.

 

This is a demo video of a screen going through its paces,it's just on a loop at the moment but all the work has been completed on a 3d printed base,stanchion and housing,just waiting for it to arrive,so for now here is a short video.

Hi

Small update,the project is still very much alive and kicking,there is a custom 3d printer being built and the last parts are just about to arrive,with this built and calibrated we can then finish the re design of the housings.

These parts are all in primer,finished colour of your choice via rattle can,the base is held to the stanchion by mags,all electrical connections by spring loaded plungers,so if you knock one over just simply re locate it.

Hi

This project is still live, the 3D printing is stalling because the owner decided to build his own and it's way ahead of what is commercially available, it's built and needs calibration but is on the to do list.

 

In the meantime the files have been altered slightly to make parts a little lighter.
