Traffic Light with Pinoo
Purpose of the Project: To make the traffic light system by using green, yellow and red led modules with the Pinoo control card.
Duration: 2 lessons
Age Group: 7 years old and above
Pinoo Set: Basic set, invention set, maker set and complete set.
Learns to code the Pinoo control board.
Learns to use a LED module.
Algorithm building skill develops.
Coding skill improves.
Materials to be used: Mblock 3 program, Pinoo control card, red, yellow and green led module, connection cables.
Materials Required for the Design: Black cardboard, white electrical tape, tongue stick, black cardboard, scissors, silicone gun and silicone.
For our project, we first start our black cardboard with a road view.
We make the road and pedestrian path with the help of white band.
We cut and straighten the bottom of our tongue stick. Then we make the small piece we cut into a rectangular shape. After fixing our tongue stick, we fix the small part to support it as in the picture.
We fix our LEDs in the form of red, yellow and green with the help of a silicon gun and we finish our design part. Let's pay attention to which doors we install our leds on the Pinoo control card. (1.Door: Red Led, 2.Door: Yellow Led, 3.Door: Green Led)
Adding Pinoo extension:
In order to control our LED module, we flash it with the code "Change LED status" under the "button is pressed" code.
Under the "Green Flag" code, we will repeat our code continuously, first turning on our red LED for 5 seconds and at the same time turning off our yellow and green LEDs. In the same way, we have turned on our yellow led for 1 second and turned on our green led for 5 seconds, and then turned on our yellow led for 1 second to repeat it continuously.
We right click on the "Pinoo Program" command. In the window that opens, we select the "Upload to Arduino" option.
On the page that opens, we click the "Upload to Arduino" button selected in red.
Our codes are uploaded to our Pinoo control card.
We click on the "Close" button after the "Download Finished" text appears. After the installation is finished, the battery compartment is inserted and the project is run.
