    I’ve got a RGB LED lighting project I’m doing for a friend.

    This project involves the interior illumination of a show car (68 Tempest) with specific colors to compliment the interior color scheme.

    Requirements:

    • Lowest cost and/or easiest to implement solution
    • Cascade two previously selected colors around a loop consisting of daisy-chained digital RGB LED strips (probably two).
    • Must be powered from vehicle 12v supply

    I demonstrated to him how I had used an Arduino Uno R3 to program a BlinkM which in turn was used in stand-alone mode to drive an analog RGB LED strip with pre-programmed color changes, but he wants to cascade his color changes down the strips, hence the requirement for individually addressable LEDs.

    I don’t know if a BlinkM can be used to send cascading color changes down a digital RGB LED strip or whether an Arduino is necessary.

    I’m also not sure whether an Arduino can be programmed to start color cycling the LED strips immediately on power up. He wants it to start cycling as soon as he turns it on without having to do any preliminary settings.

    I’ve got a RGB LED lighting project I’m doing for a friend and need some advice from the experts. I’m fairly new to microcontrollers but have done a couple projects.

No public wish lists :(
