PHOTONICS WORKSHOP: Traffic Indicator Lights for cyclists

vrijdag, 30 maart, 2018 - 10:00
Campus: Brussels Technology Campus
Fab Lab Brussel
VUB, B-PHOT & Fab Lab Brussel

2 LED-strips attached to a backpack or a high-visibility jacket. With a buttonbox, that magnetically attaches to a bike’s handlebars, you can control the blinking of the LED-strips.

You will be instructed in the use of an Arduino, a breadboard & basic programming. The circuit will be built and tested on a breadboard. During the second half of the workshop, you will convert the breadboarded circuit into a rugged, water-repellent, battery-powered controller. You will learn to solder, use shrink-tubes, use basic electronics tools and be instructed in the safe use of modern batteries.

At the end of the workshop, you can take home your traffic indicator lights for cyclists.
