Have been messing around with the idea of building some arduino based braking lights that don’t require a manual input to be activated.
How cool would it be when you put an all-in-one unit (like those little lights you can buy) on your bike that automatically detect a strong enough deceleration to activate a braking light. Would it be possible to differentiate between a braking deceleration or a deceleration due to e.g. the start of a hillclimb (which also isn’t a bad idea to activate braking lights for)
Or am I looking for a too complex solution and is it maybe possible to tap the signal from the vesc and see when the controller is in the minus range (that way you have a 100% accurate braking signal)
If so then this might be a new project.
Thoughts, inputs,… I’m curious to know!
