I have an arduino project in mind but I have some questions before I can start to make it.
I need to plug an arduino Uno on my motorcycle, but I dont know if it will consume too much energy and lower the battery level over time. I know an Arduino Uno alone consumes too few energy, so probably it will not make any difference on the electrical system of the motorcycle. But I will probably plug some shields and the whole project will have other electrical components, consuming more energy.
To be more specific about the project: I want to put an RGB LED system on my motorcycle, with its colors controlled by bluetooth (or maybe wifi). So the final question is...
How can I measure if the motorcycle battery and power generator is enough to keep the whole project turned on without discharging the battery, damaging any part of the electrical system or putting my whole motorcycle on fire?
