I posed on here a while back about making a integrated turn signal/brake light and im finally able to start working on it again. I changed a few things to hopefully make it brighter and easier.
I will be using these led's since they have a better beam angle and are much brighter that my previous ones.http://lighthouseleds.com/5mm-piranha-led-red-ultra-bright-10-000-mcd.html
Can my arduino Uno r3 handle this or will i need shift registers and led drivers? Would esentially make a 7x2 matrix? What wiring would be best for this and help with fluid animations?
It will be basic operation for the most part.
Motorcycle on (no brakes) = X% brightness
Brake applied = 100% brightness
L/R signals = 100% brightness fading from bottom to top similar to this video http://youtu.be/5ubGnuJhvsY?t=37s
How would i use the arduino to read the left/r signals activated and then trigger the animation?
I tried looking for a while to find a similar code that i can use but didnt find much. I would appreciate any help
