Started to do some small Arduino projects 2 weeks ago. Still learning to code...
Found this forum straight away but a shame that topic that interested me are very old and I not allowed to comment or ask a question any more in those treads.
Here are the links to the treads that have very nice info as well as good comments from users.
good comment here was from "groundFungus"
He/she said: The Nano can easily take care of blinking the turn signals. No need for relays anywhere as you can drive the lights with MOSFETs controlled by Nano digital outputs. Pick your LEDs. Once you know how many LEDs and their current requirements you can specify the transistors and power supply(s)."
Here is a very good tread too but without schematics not really helpful.
I think, under the video on YouTube there were schematics but because the links are broken as the video posted many years ago...
I got my rear light working on my eBike with flasher relay. Light got from YAMAHA motorcycle, slightly changed plastic casing, then design a plastic bracket, so I can fit that on my bike under the saddle.
Idea is to get rid of flasher relay and replace my Arduino Nano or Pro mini (not sure what is more capable for the required task)
So what I need at the moment is help to make schematics with components and code for the rear light only:
rear main light (not sure how to do this as I prefer front light and rear light have the same switch...but I not sure if Arduino is capable with my front light which is 60w, one is 40w and another 20w)
User "groundFungus" was ready to help in that tread :
But needed amps of hoe much all lighting system will use the energy…
So these are the main calculation (Excel) and measurement with a multimeter.
Any suggestion or mission information, please ask. Hopefully, we are succeeded and I will make the video with schematics and code inside the video, so it stays on YouTube forever for somebody need to use in the future...
