I am not really sure what the point of gathering data on a motorcycle would be for, (as I rather just go really fast) but you can surely make one of these motorcycle control panel from Arduino and gather data for fine-tuning your motorcycle.
Hey, I’m really pleased with how this is going. This is still a prototype but it’s functionally complete and works very well. It’s messy because I hacked up a generalized arduino proto-shield to mount it but there’s really not a lot to the hardware and now that it’s working I can refine it to something much smaller and neater. The functions that are there at the moment are speedo, tach, and gear indicator the speedo and tach are dead accurate and the gear indicator responds very crisply to shifting up or down.
