Hi there,I plan to use an Arduino board for a personal project : building dynamic direction indicators lights for my car (a 2004 Rover 25/Streetwise).They currently use usual bulbs, controlled by a flasher unit. I want to implement a few LEDs, controlled by a small board (e.g a nano), to loop on each diode and turning them on dynamically. The board would be powered by the original wires but I'm wondering if it is appropriate to power on and off the board and so on, just like a bulb do, each time I activate an indicator. I don't want to damage the board, by powering the board on and off too frequently.Thank you !
Thank you for your answer.I live in France, so both French and EU law apply. That's right, there is probably some legal ou insurance-related issues that I shoud consider. I was wondering if changing turn signals would be a problem, even if they are still compliants. Maybe I shoud take care of that.Otherwise, do you think it is bad to power an arduino board on and off very often ?
I personally would not be turning the arduino board on and off like a turn signal.
