Car Computer Plans

So I had a little accident the other evening in my Mazda MX5. This has motivated me to actually install some of the things I’ve been meaning to for a while now. I’ve decided that when it comes back, it’s going to be getting a second deep cycle battery added, and at least one BeagleBoard. Said board will be attached to cameras and other sensors, in addition to a 3G radio, so that I can track my car at all times, and watch live streaming video of whatever it is up to, including preserving video of any future accident. The basics are easy enough and I’m going to start with those so that it gets done. More fancy things like replacing the empeg and doing full radar tracking of other vehicles that come anywhere near my car can come sometime later. I’ll blog about it.
