Controlling Things

I have some experience with AVR microcontrollers, having built an autonomous robot from scratch in my university years, but I've come to a point where I got lazy enough to search for ready-made things rather than building them myself, if it wasn't essential to the "fun factor".

So I got this development board, the "AVR-MT-128" from OLIMEX, built around the ATMega128 chip. It has a LCD display and serial port, which I am going to use to acquire data from the computer. It also appears to have just enough pins to connect it to the dashboard (of course, I'm going to build an interface board).
