DIY Raspberry Pi HUD

Get inspired

With Raspberry Pi, you can create your own heads-up display (HUD) in your car, and can give you real-time information of your trip.

Disclaimer: this feature is not present on our out-of-the box devices. You can implement these features yourself or with our help.

Heads-up-display (HUD)

With Raspberry Pi, we can make your car Tesla-like and integrate it into a real carputer. With a Raspberry Pi car touch screen, your ordinary car is opened up with vast possibilities and opportunities.

In Tesla, everything is controlled from the large touch screen in the center console. From climate control, maps overview, cabin overheat protection and many more features. With this feature, the functionality is now able for all cars.

Increase driving experience

Connecting an external heads up display or touch screen will make your car experience much more convenient. It will give you plenty of useful information of your trip and it will feel like you are driving a brand new car, with advanced configurations. You can also give your heads up display voice commands to make it even easier to work with.

We definitely recommend you to connect a Raspberry Pi heads-up-display to your vehicle as it brings additional values and increases the driving experience.

No more annoying repairs caused by bumps and scrapes

Integrated car computers (or carputers) are not only for expensive cars like Tesla cars, nor it is only for complex car DIY projects that require you to have a degree in engineering. Not many people know how easy it is; by combining a few components, it is possible to achieve a Raspberry Pi car computer or carputer.

In addition, the Raspberry Pi HUD can work with an external parking sensor (parking assitance), enabling you to see your surroundings of your vehicle in real-time on your HUD.

How you can achieve this


You will need to connect an external heads up display or touch screen to your AutoPi TMU device. Then you can use it as an advanced cloud management platform and it will give you lots of useful information for your trip. Check out our article on how to build a Raspberry Pi car computer.
