The standard speed gauge uses
a needle pointing to the speed at which the bike is moving at. This
aims to replace the standard analog gauge with an optically illuminated
gauge. The information on the gauge will be displayed digitally through
of light-emitting-diodes (LEDs) and a liquid-crystal-display (LCD).
The analog gauge with
digital movement is a University of Idaho senior design project
Biketronics. Biketronics is a company based in Moscow, ID that
after-market parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles. Mike Meehan is the
representing Biketronics for the duration of this project.
objective of this project is to provide an alternative
speed gauge for a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The gauge design will
replace the current analog needle on the speed gauge with solid state
needle. The gauge will allow for some
customization. It will also include an odometer to display the total
the vehicle. We will be using the smallest possible LCD to display the
information, with LEDs set in a specific configuration according to our
face design to display the speed of the motorcycle.
