Can I use arduino to control my high-powered bicycle headlight? Answered
I'm in the midst of building a new high-power led headlight for my bicycle (i.e. Ive ordered a new battery and a bunch of hardware, led's and a driver). My question for the community is whether or not an arduino unit could be used to control functions or modes of the light. I have built alot of lights and know a decent amount about electronics but I have zero experience with arduino and programing. I am using this buck driver (http://www.ledsupply.com/0a009-d-v-1400.php) with a triple cree xp-g led and a 14.4v lithium battery. Ideally I would like a single button to cycle through 5 modes: off, low, high, F-U idiot driver, and strobe. If anyone knows what kind of stuff I would need to buy(i.e. controller, switch,etc...), if the stuff would interface with this driver, and how I would go about programming the thing I would much appreciate it.
