Let me tell you how this whole project started. To do this - I'll have to go back to 2013 when my son was born. As a newborn kid - he often didn't want to go to sleep, so I've figured out that driving a car with him is working like a sleeping pill. But hey! Who will be driving around the neighborhood every time the child needs to sleep...?
That got me thinking: what's in car driving that makes my kid sleep? Is it the movement? No - otherwise, he'd be sleeping in stroller. So maybe it's the sound? Bingo! After short while - I've obtained not-so-legal copy of Euro Truck Simulator 2 and started playing with Matthew with me. After two minutes - he was sleeping like a baby! :) So I've headed to the nearest shop and bought the genuine game.
After few months - I've been playing the game for myself, rather than to put my son to sleep ;)
Because I've always loved cars, computer and electronics - this took me where I am now - I've connected all three of them and this project came up. So here I am: i have a computer with ETS2, a Logitech Driving Force GT 900 degrees wheel with pedals and my new Logitech Driving Force Shifter that I've got from my (supposedly) better half on Christmas. Of course - the shifter is incompatible with the wheel so I needed to Arduino to make it working.
Because Arduino is veeeeery flexible - the whole project will be built on it.
