Hello class! I’m excited to share with you my in-progress bicycle brake light. As of now, the housing has been laser-cut and the LEDs are working with a pushbutton. This is illustrated below.
This project is inspired by the recent bicycle/driver related accidents and violence in my hometown. Here is an article describing one of the events. Its always precarious to slow down or stop suddenly while riding in heavy traffic since there is no indication of this with standard lights.
I think I will use the Adafruit tutorial for the FSR sensor which is going to be mounted on the brake lever.
