Arduino Traffic Light Timing Lesson #ArduinoMonday


Via Allaboutcircuits

The Traffic Light Controller enables you to gain control of your road rage with a sense of understanding!

We all have it to some degree and we all know somebody who has it worse than us—road rage! The Traffic Light Controller teaches you street smarts, giving you the knowledge to keep your road rage at bay. If you understand what’s going on with the red light, maybe you’ll be able to wait more patiently for the green light!

Why?

You see, my wife, Debra, and I love taking our Sunday drives but we’re sick of sitting at red lights. I figured I could build something to control the traffic lights so we always have green.

I eventually realized that the original project was merely for LEDs and couldn’t actually control a real traffic light, but I built the project anyway and thereby gained an understanding of why traffic lights can’t switch from red to green solely for our driving convenience. The Traffic Light Controller helps keep Debra and me levelheaded in road-rage situations—ultimately saving our marriage!

50-06Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
