Peripheral Navigation Aid Prototype Design

8x8 LED Matrix Design Idea courtesy of http://www.thingiverse.com/oomlout

Our goal is to design an 8×7 LED matrix on an acrylic layout that can be easily attached and removed at the driver’s convenience.  Once the 15cm x 24cm transparent layout is complete, the LED’s will be soldered in place, and wired into their respective rows and columns.  The goal will be displaying “strips” of LED’s indicating directional information.  Once completed, an Arduino keypad will be implemented to assist in giving directional information to the driver in a more efficient and timely manner.
