20+ years coding for large firms, it was time to code for fun. I love miniatures, model railroading, RC vehicles, and dollhouses to name a few. Current lighting on model railroads is expensive and difficult. I wanted to build something modular, inexpensive, and fun.
A powerful and low-cost solution for model railroad lighting and signaling control. We use a microcontroller that is user configured via the desktop application that then drives a "bus" of addressable RGB pixels or LEDs. The RGB pixels can each be individually configured for behavior & effects. Our solution supports a number of predefined lighting templates - beacons, crossing signals, traffic signals, floods, emergency services flashers, railroad 2 aspect dwarf signals etc.
