Step 1: Traffic Light Structure Framework
Traffic Light Structure
Take The Balsa Wood Pack And Cut Out Pieces As Shown In The Pictures. Use The Super Glue To Bond The Pieces Together. After You Glue Them Together, Use A Black Sharpie To Fill In A Square Area. Then Continue To The Next Step.
Step 2: Solder the LED's to the Framework
Soldering The LED's
The Next Step, Is Soldering The LED's. Use The Weller Soldering Iron To Bond The LED's To The Framework Of The Balsa Wood Structure. Once You Have Done This Move To The Next Step.
Step 3: Connect Your Wires to Arduino's PINS
Connect The PINS
Connect All Off The Hookup Wires To The Corresponding PINS On The Arduino Board As Shown In The Pictures And Continue To The Next Step.
Step 4: Program Your Arduino Board
Program Your Board
Now You Have To Program Your Arduino Board I Order For It To Operate Correctly. I Have Developed Some Code For You To Use On The Traffic Lights. I Plan To Upgrade It Soon To Include An AI For Motion Detecting. I Have Included The Code In The .INO File
