Intro: CO2 Dragster Timer With Arduino
This project is for a co2 dragster track.
Step 1: Gather Materials
- Arduino Uno
- 2 LCD Displays
- 2 IR Sensors
- 2 IR LEDs
- 1 momentary switch
- Pitsco CO2 Dragster Course
- 2 10k Ohm Resistors
Step 2: Designing the LCD Frame
We used Auto desk Inventor program to design the frame for the LCD screen. We first started by measuring the LCD screen it self to plug in the dimensions into Inventor.
This Frame Holds the Lcd Displays and the major electronics of the project
Step 3: Attach the Start Switch
This switch starts the timer once the release is let off.
This is accomplished by attching the switch so that it will actuate once the lever releases the hammer to hit the co2 cartridges in the 2 cars.
