Greeting sound in car

Thu Nov 12, 2020 5:46 pm

I am a complete beginner, just researching how to go about this project. So I want my car to play a sound when the ignition is switched on (like the Japanese toll ETC reader voice). I’ve been told a pi is an option to go about this but I’ve never used one before. I found an amplified speaker that connects to the gpio pins and I wanted everything to be powered by the cigarette lighter port. Has anyone done something like this and is this possible?

Hi.

If you just want to this one thing then a pi is not the device you want, you would be better with an Arduino.

Reasoning.

The pi will take time to boot before it can play the sound,

It will also need to be shutdown before removing the lower.

The Arduino will not suffer either of these problems.

an arduino may not even be needed for such a project

a creatively and properly hard-wired DFP Mini MP3 Player might do the job for you.
