Pi Ghost Car Indicator
I'm developing a Ghost Car Indicator for the race car. This will give me a visual indication if I am faster or slower than a previous best time around the circuit. Just like you can race the Ghost Car on Mario Kart, you'll get an indication if you are on for a new PB.
So how do we go about building a Pi Ghost Car Indicator?
We need a Pi3 or later. And a BerryGPS board, which has a uBlox CAM-M8 GPS chip capable of 18 Hz updates. And for the display, at the moment I'm using the rainbow LED HAT to indicate performance. Both the BerryGPS-IMU and the Rainbow HAT are connected to the Pi3 using a ribbon cable (DIL Header).
The LED HAT is made by Allo, and their page can be found here https://www.allo.com/sparky/rainbow.html
The GPS Board is marketed by OZZMAKER.COM and can be found here
The datasheet for the uBlox CAM-M8 is here
