    College Electrical Project - Astra Related...Ideas?

    I need to do an electrical project for my college course to pass my BTEC/NVQ at the end of the year.

    It has to be work related but havent got a scooby doo on what to actually do!

    Therefore im going to do something car related, and specifically astra related as im pretty much know my way around them know...well more than any other car anyways

    I need to something electrical related, so was thinking about tyre pressure sensors in the wheels but need something a bit more simple.

    I need to build it from scratch, so if anyone has any ideas of has done anything like this before for their astra, then let me know!

    I can be told what to do, but have to build it myself!

    So any ideas are welcome, home made auto lights, auto something else etc!

    Home made auto lights is a cool idea.

    I have no clue on electircs, but could you not do like a device to show how much weight in is your car . . maybe? I don't know, ill have a think at work for ya, see if i can come up with anything good.

    You could jsut go for the (adding leds? prolly a bit easy for you though. Like Leds under the bonnet etc maybe.

    Yer it does have to have an element of difficulty to it! I have a year to do it in at work etc, so have quite a while to do it!

    The only thing i wouldnt wanna do it start messing round with my car, bit if i could get a lock, ingiton barrel etc, then i could put it on a timer to lock the doors etc, after removing the key from the ignition or something!

    Design your own auto-closure kit.

    Or rear parking sensor/camera kit.

    Or how about a proximity alarm?

    auto close is a good idea.
    what about a device that opens the boot automatically - by button. lol

    How long do you have to do it?
    Do you have any other constraints as well such as time and finance?
