I just finished the first prototype of the front turn indicators. I took two Tamburini blinkers because they can be opened easy, but I'm not really happy with the design yet.

Fantastic work Gecko. I applaud your ingenuity and creativity. I would love the rear light set up on my bike. However I am pretty sure the legislation in the UK defines a minimum spacing between turn indicators which might preclude this being legal. (Would probably run that risk saying that!) The strobes would DEFO get you a ticket in the UK though. All said and done it looks very very slick and well executed. If you can find a vendor in China who can produce the light unit in a good quality plastic that accurately emulates the factory OEM version, then you are on to a sure fire winner. Well done.
Thanks from Gecko

Thank you topolino. I am aware of european legal issues. ACLs are switchable, also the logic has a"police"-input line that immediately disables all fancy functions. I already realized a "bridge" and an "OEM" mode that makes behaving the rear light without any non-legal signalling. double0's blue mode is also integrated.

Yesterday I finished hardware and software of the integrated accelerometer (same chip as found in smart phones). Tried to bring it up to work in the car first. It looked good, so I put it on the Panigale. Results were terrible, this bike is a vibrating mess

After adding a low pass filter (to reduce measuring noise) and a high pass filter (to eliminate earth's gravity influencing the sensor readings when the bike's pitch changes) "heavy" brake detections works now.

I hope I get news from a friend next week about the tail light housings.
