Hello all, I just wanted to see if there were a couple people out there that could help me out on a project and lead me in the right direction with parts and programming if needed. Basically I want to make a LED tailgate bar from a strip of 5050 SMD LEDs , not the addressable version tho. I was planning on running 2 strips, one for each half of the truck and tied to hat corresponding tail light. I was wanting to run an arduino un r3, but I was pointed towards the ruggeduino board. I have no experience with arduino, but I really want to learn. I would like the lights to be dimish red for parking light input, bright red for brake light input, amber for turn signals, and white for reverse lights if there are enough circuits. So I was thinking of taking the signal from the truck to the analog input side of arduino and output the digital side. I am not really sure where to start with this, so any and all help is appreciated.
