Slot Car Lap Counter using Hall Effect Sensor & Arduino Answered

Hi guys,

For a university project I am using a hall effect sensor to count laps of a slot car. I am hoping to count the laps and output the number to a 7 segment LED display.

However I am very new to coding and arduinos themselves. I was wondering if anyone had any similar projects or knows of any code I could use or any ideas people may have for a potential solution.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

LOL In my days we had mechanical counters, worked a treat and without any coding, microprocessor or other crap.
If one wants it fancy there is always the option of a dedicated counter with display, again no coding required, just a simple Ebay search...
