Hi folks, I've got a bit of a challenge on, hopefully you guys will have some ideas! A friend runs a race car in a small championship, his car runs on an Omex S400 ECU, which has a serial port to output data/alter the map from. Until now he hasn't used any GPS/ECU data when looking at his racing, but there's a desire there, since the ECU is so easily accessed (it sits on the floor in the passenger footwell). Omex provide two pieces of software - one to alter the map, the other is a comprehensive data logger. The software is pretty old, so it should run OK on a Pi, but a) Can the pi run Win95/XP under emulation? b) Will I be able to get the software being emulated to use a serial port properly? c) Is this a stupid idea? The reason I'm looking at a Pi is because it's cheap, light, and small - I can pack it all into a tiny project box and bolt it down to the bulkhead without too much modification. If, on the other hand, you have another suggestion for a small, light windows-capable machine I'm all ears, I was considering some kind of netbook as well.
