Using Arduino to Auto-dim LED EBY701?
I have an arduino board and ... well, I want to put it to use.
Does anyone know if it is possible to power the LED Backlight system in the EBY701 with your own power source? So.. instead of the EBY701 circuit board controlling/powering the backlight, I'd like to use my Arduino board to power/control the LED backlight and install an ambient light sensor in my vehicle somewhere so that at night the backlight automatically goes LOW and in the day, it automatically goes HIGH.. maybe have a feathering code on the arduino so it slowly fades between brightnesses when going through tunnels, etc...
Being that the Arduino board is interfaceable to the computer through USB, even bluetooth and WIFI, a small front end touch-friendly GUI could be coded to be able to add a menu to centrafuse/roadrunner to allow manual control of the screen brightness settings through software.
Anyone interested and want to help a buddy out with this idea?
