Air ride in 1964 Impala, custom managment.
I just ordered a basic level 1 analog Air Ride Technologies package. Going with the CoolRide setup, 5 gallon tank, 2 pumps, Big Red valves.
That isn't the whole story though. The plan is to build a custom management system. That means the computer, software and controller for it. Will be running at least pressure sensors, but maybe also ride height sensors.
The plan is to use an Arduino Uno prototyping board as the main platform, it has enough inputs and outputs needed and is cheap ($29). The interface is simple and it can be programmed over a serial connection to a computer. Potential things I might play around with is IR sensors and Bluetooth connectivity, to be able to communicate with the controller without wires.
To be able to build a touch display controller, I have basically two options, setting up a BeagleBoard (think laptop performance) with a touch display, but I am leaning into using a regular smartphone. That means I will be able to use pretty much any Android based smartphone to control my system.
I will try and post progress as I go forward.
