The moving light project

Project definition

The moving light is Knight Rider Kit like device that has a bar of LEDs that produce the effect of the moving light along the bar. The moving light is microcontroller based, there may be an option to reconfigure the device to produce different effects other than the moving light.

  • Q: How many LEDs should we use? The number will determine the number of the pins of the microcontrioller, and the type of the circuit that we need to use. We can assume that the LEDs will be spaced 5mm apart.

*A: The original KITT have had 6 segments. But one segment was bigger than 5mm. I belive the size was about 10cm.
