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?
Using a LED driver is always
a good idea. Messing about with resistors, etc. will always lead to sub-optimal brightness control.
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
14 LEDs with variable brightness says "TLC5940" to me.
How would i use the arduino to read the left/r signals activated and then trigger the animation?
I dunno, I can't see your bike from here...
Are the original lights LEDs or light bulbs? Where do the wires from the switches go? Is there a control box full of electronics anywhere?
