Hardware dashboard - SimHub

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I`ve been working on software telemetry dashboard for Dirt Rally 2.0, then moved to creating hardware dashboard also.
Dashboard is custom made from scratch, shell is 3D printed. Needless to say, each LED or digit can be set up through SimHub to display any telemetry data.

Currently how I`m using it is in following layout.

LEDs
- First 2 leds light up when speed is over 150km/h
- Leds 3-10 are RPMs
- Last 11-12 leds light up when speed is above 170km/h

Screens (7-segment displays)
- 1 digit - Current gear
- 2 digit upper - km in stage (maybe current lap in F1 games)
- 2 digit lower - total km in stage (maybe total laps in F1 games)
- 4 digit upper - speed
- 4 digit lower - stage time (or lap time)


As I`m mostly playing Dirt Rally I don`t have that much experience with F1 (tho I play it occasionally), so my question would be - what would be useful layout for F1 games (both in terms of hardware layout as well as SimHub-dashboard combination)?

I`ll probably have one or two for giveaway (as when ordering prototyping boards I have minimum amount I have to order) as soon as all components arrive, so I`d give it to people who have good ideas for improving layout.

 

Demo:

That looks great👍

It has a kind of similarity with this, that also can be used with F1 games etc:

for myself, I am using a software version with a display on my F1 steering wheel:

Keep up the good job!

 

Excellent tips, I wasn`t aware of Trustmaster`s display.

I was also considering going full software with display - but decided against it due to cost and the feel of hardware LED`s. 

Is that 4.3" USBD480 display? Looks great mounted!

@ GioProduktions: Now u have to explain how u made that one! Looks nice and not so invasive to the body of the wheel. Digging out big holes to fit is not that funny...

Thrustmaster's (Bluetooth) add-on (for the Open Racing Wheel) looks like this.
