Introduction: 8 Player Quizz Buzzer System Using Arduino

8 player quiz buzzer can be used in various competition organise in school and colleges to identify the team who has pressed the buzzer first.

Advantage of this quiz buzzer circuit is once a team has press the switch others team may press the switch but only number. displayed on display who press switch first. So with the help of this circuit we can easily identify the contestant who has press the switch first. Let build the circuit using a ARDUINO NANO which read the input from push buttons and displays the corresponding number on a display device. It is a simple circuit with minimum number of components and easily can build. The ARDUINO takes into account the time delay between two buttons and the accurate number is displayed. When one of the buttons is pressed, the buzzer starts ringing and the corresponding number is displayed on the 7 segment display.

Step 1: Components:

1. Arduino Nano or any

2. Push Buttons x8

3. Resistors x8 2.2Kohm

4. Resistor 220ohm 1watt

5. 7 Segment Display

6. Male Female headers

7. Buzzer

8. 2N2222 npn transistor x1

9. Resistor 1kohm

10. 9v Battery & connector

11. Dot matrix PCB

Step 2:

Step 3: Circuit Diagram:

Here in circuit we are not using A6 & A7 pins of nano because there is no digital circuit present internally in the chip.

Step 4: Coding:

int x=1;// take int value as 1

void setup()

{ pinMode(A0,INPUT); //analog pins as input

pinMode(A1,INPUT);

pinMode(A2,INPUT);

pinMode(A3,INPUT);

pinMode(A4,INPUT);

pinMode(A5,INPUT);

pinMode(0,INPUT); //digital pins as input

pinMode(1,INPUT);

pinMode(12,OUTPUT); //Digital pins as output for seven seg display

pinMode(11,OUTPUT);

pinMode(10,OUTPUT);

pinMode(9,OUTPUT);

pinMode(8,OUTPUT);

pinMode(7,OUTPUT);

pinMode(6,OUTPUT);

pinMode(3,OUTPUT); // output for buzzer

// set initially display to 0

digitalWrite(12,HIGH); // seg a

digitalWrite(9,HIGH); //seg d

digitalWrite(8,HIGH); //seg e

digitalWrite(7,HIGH); // seg f

    Instead of seven segment display, is it possible to use LEDs for each participant? What changes in the circuitry will be required for that?

    Yes it is possible and very simple to do. You need leds which will be connected to digital pins and make it high when button is pressed.

    I want to use common anode 7 segment display how to change this program
