Introduction: 8 Player Quizz Buzzer System Using Arduino

About: Master in Electronics Engineering

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

    The project is very nice. I constructed it. working very nicely.
    Some suggestions for those who want to construct this project:
    If the length of the wires for each switch is kept very large, as shown in my prototype (which I regularly use in my classroom for quizzes), there are some stray pickup and accidental triggering.
    For that I used 1uF styroflex capacitor in parallel witht the switch below the pullup resistor.
    Also I made little changes in the code, so that there is no need to reset the system.
    After every action the system will reset itself i.e. x=1 after about 5 sec.
    check more constructional details in an attractive case, on my website:

    Question 10 months ago

    HI Rishabh,
    In my project the display is not getting reset every time, it takes 2 to 4 clicks to reset, what can be done..

    Question 1 year ago

    Hi RishabhL,
    This project is really nice. I guess you did it on fritzing software. Can you share this project file to open in fritzing. Is to possible to perform simulation on fritzing?
    Thank you

    Thank you. I am glad you like it. Sorry I searched for that file but I did't get it. It is very simple to make it on fritzing you can build your own. For simulation I prefer you to use proteus. Fritzing do not have any provision for simulation.

    Yes there is 220ohm resistor in ckt . This resistor is connected to common ground of 7segment display.

    Question 2 years ago

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

    Answer 2 years ago

    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.

    Just write LOW on the place of HIGH for pint of 7seg display.

    Hello,

    I am a beginner. Could u please tell me why you have used a 9v battery here?

    Can we do this without using that. Also, in the diagram, the negative edge of the battery is not clear, where it is connected ?

    With Regards,

    9v battery is used for power supply, you can use 5v to 12 v power supply. Any power supply you can use. Negative terminal of battery is connected to common terminal of 7segment display, arduino nano gnd terminal, npn transistor's emitter terminal and to all push buttons.
