Thought I would share my latest Propeller based gauge project. It is a battery powered wall gauge; well really 5 gauges, that displays the charge state from my wife's Tesla. A raspberry pi is used to pull charge data from the car and send it to a Propeller in a 32 bit infrared packet. The Prop decodes the packet and drives a motor circuit attached to a small stepper motor.

The 5 gauges show overall charge of the vehicle's battery from 0 to 100%, projected range based on driving habits, total kilowatt hours for last charge, estimated cost of last charge, and time to complete current charge. I also posted some pics of the wood working in a blog at https://www.wallgauge.com/post/charge-range-gauge-for-my-tesla-model-x

  • Those look good. I see you use those X27 steppers that are used in Chevy speedometer clusters. I found a gauge face designer for designing your own analog meter faces. It's called Tonne software the freebie one works pretty good.
  • Love this! I just bought a new Tesla model S100D this summer. I'm interested in the Pi side of your project. Where is the Pi pulling data from?

    I just added a Testing section to the readme on my node.js class that access the Tesla data. Goto https://github.com/RuckerGauge/TeslaChargeDataFetcher. It has instructions on how to install and test the class if want to roll your own.

    For more information on the Raspbery Pi see the Gauge Data Transmitter at https://WallGauge.com.

    That is so cool http://www.tonnesoftware.com/meter.html. I will give it a try on my next project. Most of my gauges use non-linear scales. I have some gauge faces that have 3 scales on them. Curious how they will handle that.

    Thanks for sharing!!
