Car blinker

  • August 11, 2017 11:58 PM CEST

    Hi all,

    for my current project I was looking for this feature. I would like implement blinker triggered by button or steering. In addition to this I want to support hazard flasher by button.

    I solved all requirement with the current SBrick software. 

    First you need to define the following controls in GUI:

    1. Slider for Steering
    2. Sequence Control "blinker left" with 
      • one Channel "blinker left" with Time frame 0,7 sec and three marks
        1. Time: 0 ; Value: 0
        2. Time: 0,3 ; Value: 0,6 (defines density value)
        3. Time: 0,7 ; Value: 0
    3. Sequence Control "blinker right" with sequence settings similar to "blinker left"
    4. Sequence Control "hazard flasher" with two channels "blinker left" and "blinker right" each channel similar to "blinker left"
    5. Slider as "Dummy" (This connector should be left empty, but is important for correct behaviour)
      It is recommended to set width and height to 0 so it is not visble.

    Now you need three circuits to to run your blinkers triggered by steering:

    1. Circuit "Dummy Circuit" (Without this circuit my left blinker will not be activated by steering)
      • Input: Steering
      • Logic: linear
        • a: -1
        • b: 0
      • Target: Dummy
    2. Circuit "Blinker Left"
      • Input: Dummy
      • Logic: event
        • upper limit: 1
        • lower limit: 0,1
      • Target
        • in: Blinker Left
        • mode: on
        • out: Blinker Left
        • mode: off
    3. Circuit "Blinker Right"
      • Input: Steering
      • Logic: event
        • upper limit: 1
        • lower limit: 0,1
      • Target
        • in: Blinker Right
        • mode: on
        • out: Blinker Right
        • mode: off

    Sorry for not having a link for you but currently I am not allowed to change my profile to public, so I cannot share it with you.

    Feel free to comment my solution or contact me for questions.

    I do not like the Dummy, but I think there is a bug in firmware of SBrick so it is a workaround but you will be able to enhance your MOCs with this solution.

    Best Regards

    Dear Nikolaus, 

    Yes, you can set the lights for blinking. :) 

    You will need the sequence function for this. :) 

    Please check it here,

    If something is not clear we will help you, just contact us at

    Best regards,

    Any updates on this feature? And if blinking is an option, maybe make 2 types of blinking. one for regular turn signals (on, offf, on, off..etc.etc.) and one for use in emergency lights (as in orange for construction vehicles and red and blue for police,fire )  That would be something like pulse, pulse....pause....pulse pulse....pause...etc.etc..

    A similar...but as far as i can see not implemented or stopped project is this

    I think sbrick would have no problem with that!

    Unfortunately we still have to wait for the new features. Currently our developers are working on the applications.

    I join the group asking regarding the blinker functionality. Any news or estimate about when it will be available?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey guys,

    I want to build a very realistic car with a blinker (blinking lights on left and rigth side). But I dont know how to add this function to my profile in the profile designer... (like the S-Brick Version of the 42030 Volvo wheelloader has)

    Thank you for answer!
