Hi all, I'm new to this forum, and to be honest new to the Arduino entirely. But I'm not new to building things:
That's my bike, it's an 87 Ninja 750. I bought it as a basket case, and have spent the last few years, slowly piecing it back together. Ignore my buddy walking towards my camera, unless you like PBR. Which I do!
Here's the rough sketch of my idea.
This is what I'm working with.
This is my fairing, you can see the LED strips already in place, but they're not quite bright enough for my liking during the day and they don't have enough LEDs for the effect I'm going for. So I bought something similar to these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/24cm-Amber-LED-Flexible-Neon-Strip-Light-for-Car-or-Van-/320857713859?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4ab49c2cc3&vxp=mtr
I'm going to have 2 strips side by side on each turn signal, and I want them to pulse similar to Knight Rider.
The strips can be broken up into sections of 3, which I'll be doing.
Here's where I need help:
Can a single Arduino run both turn signals independently? And handle the hazard light function? I do want to stay moderately legal. Since it's in the bike, what else could I use it for?
Which Arduino would I need to purchase?
I've found the blikenlight code for the Knight Rider effect, and it seems like that would be a good choice to use. I'm not a computer programmer so what else would need done to make my project happen.
Is this even doable? Or should I use something different?
