Well the tesla uses a linux tablet, and you can get one for like $50 with bluetooth/gps/wifi/sd slot/google maps/4g/usb (ssd?)/phone integration/stereo sound/ attach rearview camera/etc. etc. etc.

and this is the "cheap" 3 phase controller thread. A $700 proprietary display and hundreds in can adapters isn't terribly in line with that goal. A sd adapter, or a bluetooth adapter for realtime information/graphs, certainly would be.

Either way the controller needs to emit the data, but otherwise you would want the controller to be fairly stand-alone. I wouldn't add obd as a requirement certainly, and can for cans sake doesn't make a lot of sense. It has a "coupling" effect which will bind up progress, where you probably need a de-coupling.
