Breaking Light

Has anyone tried to implement an simple "breaking" light on VESC firmware? 

I'm working on a onewheel now, and was thinking about having ws2812b on te front and on the back, illuminating them accordingly, and changing intensity to have a "breaking" light.

Hello everyone, 

I did some more research, and I actually found a video and a firmware that Benjamin made using ws2811 for breaking lights and turn signals, the firmware name is VESC_ws2811.bin.

But, i noticed looking the source code that you can't use Hall sensors if the leds are enabled. 

I'm gonna keep studing the source code and see if I can figure it out.... I "need" to have both hall sensors and leds enabled, but no idea if it is possible.
