WheelLED is a bike wheel lighting device designed by KitSprout. It consists of a full circle of LEDs which give a circular light projection. When riding the bike, a particular angle of LEDs will light up towards the road. There are more and more possible functions or usage in the future development.
Now we have designed Version 1 and 2. Both for 700C bike rim. We are looking forward to find a way designing mounting solutions for other sizes of bike rims.
There are 7 segments in one circle, and a controller is in the middle of the wheel, which addresses individual device segments for every LED's on/off command. As well as other RPM, temperature..etc sensor calculations.
This project is still in development.
