# Final Project
This is is kind of a build log, written in different times during the class. It may contain invalid information regarding the final outcome.
## Inspiration
From an early age, a couple of my main interests have been computers and cars. Now that I have a family too, which takes precedence over most hobbies, I must find creative ways to mix hobbies and interests with my family.

### Front mount V2.0
Right before the final presentation, I realized the limitation of my I<sup>2<sup>C setup, which handled the communications between all boards. I had to shorten the distance between the parental and child units, so I made a new mount which sits in the middle console.

It sits quite well and fits the same mounts I had already made.
### Rear mount
Next up, the rear mount! I grabbed the main measurments of the headreast axles.

### Packaging
Once I got the stuff actually working, it was time to package them!
Using KiCad to get the outlines of the boards into Fusion, creating a backplate, a plexiglass middle layer and cover was a nice process! Also using fusion, all items were combined to a single project to get the final "exploded" view used in the [presentation](../final-project-presentation/index.md).
