Video: Is It a Car? Is It a Computer? No, It’s a Raspberry Pi Java Carputer

Most of us sit inside the Internet of Things without even knowing it. Today's cars have onboard computers that generate lots of data. A self-described "petrol-head," Oracle Technology Evangelist Simon Ritter combined his love of tech with is love of cars to create a simple carputer so he could access the inner workings of his Audi.

For under £100, Ritter was able to connect a Raspberry Pi to his car. He used Java Embedded and JavaFX to build an application to monitor engine performance, throttle position, and G-forces on the car.

and this OTN Community Cast.

Is the code for this available anywhere?

There are some bits on my blog, blogs.oracle.com/speakjava, but I'm hoping at some point to make the whole project available.
