Chaser Lights -quinn

Introduction: Chaser Lights -quinn

This will be making an application where strings of adjacent light bulbs cycle on and off frequently to give the illusion of lights moving along the string.

Step 1: Set Up Arduino Board

materials needed:

Arduino board

LED x6

Resistors x6

Breadboard

Connecting wires x9

Step 2: Add Pieces Into Breadboard

connect wires from Arduino to breadboard as done in the photo with resistors and LED lights in the correct place.

Step 3: Coding

In your Arduino app create a new project and add in this coding:

int pinsTotal=8;
int pins[] = {2,3,4,6}; int pins[] = {9,8,7,5}; // making a new line makes the computer see it as a new, different subject so it goes at the same time // arrangement/pattern of the direction the lights will go in

void setup() { for (int i=0; i

}

void loop() { for (int i=0; i0; i=i-1){ digitalWrite(pins[i], HIGH); delay(100); digitalWrite(pins[i], LOW); } }


------

Then hit the upload button to connect the coding to the hardware and the lights should work
