I'm sourcing the parts now for an LED persistence of vision setup on a bicycle. Two wheels with anywhere between 16-32 LED's per wheel, as well as 24 LED's mounted on the frame of the bike itself
Since the Arduinos have to be mounted into the wheels to drive the POV displays - do I need a total of 3 arduinos?
Driven by 2x [Nano 3.0 Atmel Atmega328P Mini-USB Board] + an Arduino Uno from the frame? So far I think I'll pick up 2 x [433Mhz RF Transmitter Module + Receiver Module Link Kit] for wireless control, [Reed Switch Magnetic Detection Sensor Module] for calculating velocity from a small magnet mounted somewhere on one of the forks. 4 x [WS2811 RGB 8-LED Light Strip Module] as the POV LED's, or maybe some of the [DotStar Digital LED] and miscellaneously perhaps are some of these required/ useful? maybe instead of the 4x8 I could go 4x [SSC Seoul P4], or from [SparkFun], following pieces of [this guide]
- DIY AT89S52 Microcontroller Development Board Set
- [KT0026 Electronic Parts Pack]
- [Square Prototyping Plate]
- [ZnDiy-BRY Z-069 MB102 Breadboard + Power Supply Module]
My main concern is refresh rates....getting everything controlled...and making sure I have enough I/O. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (URL's available on request :P)
