Public Transportation Display - LCARS style

Last week I read this post about a Public Transportation Display and recognized this is only a few streets away from my home. And more important, I remembered I started a similar project a month ago as I discovered the web app from our local transportation office ( If you do a proper GET request the server sends you a json file with the traffic information.
My plan was to use one of my Ethernet boards I developed last year for my LED panels (I will post more about this project in a few weeks). But here is a sneak preview of the board:
  • Powered by an Atmega 644p@20Mhz 
  • ENC28J60 Ethernet controller
  • Micro SD-Card Socket
  • FTDI FT232 USB to serial converter
  • Pinheader for an HD44780 LCD Display
