As part of a recent classic car conversion they used a Teensy 3.6 and 0.96 inch color display to control a modified warning light.
Cafe Electric is a small company in Oregon that builds electric vehicles. Recently they shared details of a classic car conversion that they are working on in which they have used a Teensy 3.6, a custom PCB and an Adafruit OLED screen to replace a warning light.
Since a @Tesla based classic car conversion wants to look unmodified, we’re replacing a warning light with a @adafruit screen running on @PaulStoffregen Teensy 3.6 with CAN interfaces on a @oshpark PCB.
