Hello, I've seen various conversations about doing some of what I want, but nothing that really touches the bulk of it.
Rather than spending a bunch of money on a emergency light for my truck (i'm a volunteer fire fighter) And having some what of a technical background, I thought it might be a good and interesting solution to make a custom setup.
Basically I am wanting to build a bar, that contains 8 sets of 3 1 watt led lights, and each set of 3 can be controlled into a flash pattern like what you would see on a police car or fire truck.
A example of how they would be setup, including a video of the flash patterns is here: prestigeemergencylights.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=7&products_id=6
Now I understand that Using Arduino, It may not be possible to user select multiple patterns, and I'm ok with only using one pattern.
Any ideas on where to start on this project would be greatly appreciated. Or do you think it would be better just to scrap the idea, and buy it pre-made.
Thank you for taking the time.
