About this project

This is not a finished project, and could use a lot of improvement if it was ever used on the streets. Also, there is no special story behind why I decided to make this. I just thought it would be cool to have a helmet that is connected to a smartphone.

You can check out the video here (the demonstration is at the end of the video).

Code

helmet_indicator.inoC/C++
int value = 1;

void setup() {
  
  pinMode(3, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(11, OUTPUT);
  Serial.begin(9600);
}


void loop() {


  // Apk sends 0 if right button is pressed, 2 if left and 1 if stop
  if(Serial.available()){
    value = Serial.read();
  }
    
    if(value == 0){
       digitalWrite(11, HIGH);   
       delay(700);              
       digitalWrite(11, LOW);   
       delay(700); 
    }
    if(value == 2){
       digitalWrite(3, HIGH);   
       delay(700);              
       digitalWrite(3, LOW);    
       delay(700); 
    }
    if(value == 1){
      digitalWrite(3, LOW);
      digitalWrite(11, LOW);   
    }
  }
