Bicycleledpov: A bicycle Visual LED Artwork

Posted January 13, 2014 by Chris

"Bicycle LED POV hardware V1.0. The microcontroller unit (MCU) is the Atmel AT90USB162, 8 bits microcontroller with USB functionality. MCU will be able to determine the velocity of the bicycle wheel by reading impulses of the hall effect sensor. Knowing the velocity, MCU will read the images from the DataFlash memory using SPI bus, and in the correct timing will send them to the LED drivers using SPI bus, turning on and off the LEDs."
