We need a switch box (electronic circuit projet) for Motorcycle to allow riders to talk to different motorcycles using an external VHF/UHF radio. You connect a group of riders in the same channel to allow multiple conversation, when in idle (no one talking) it switch to iPod/iPhone player. When someone talks, it fade the music and bring on the radio conversation. When radio conversation finish, it brings back the music from ipod/iphone.
The box should have 4 connectors:
1 for power 12 V
1 for iPod/iPhone - standard iPhone connector - to charge, control iPod/iPhone and have the sound input
1 for in/out VHF/UHF radio - standard
1 for PTT
It should have 5 buttons on the handlebar :
1. A PTT (push to talk) button to start conversation
2. An iPod increase volume
3. An iPod decrease volume
4. Start/Stop song
5. next song
The connection from the Box to the helmet might be a wired connection, though a bluetooth wireless connection is preferable. (using a bluetooth device or a iPhone as MP3 player and a helmet bluetooth mic/stereo speakers.)
This is a project to be used by 6 motorcycles in a long trip crossing south america, today we use Chatterbox (that has the radio itself) but the range for communication is very short. With external VHF/UHF radios, we can even carry a long range model.
