Analog input & output


Analog input and output is a fundamental concept in electronics and microcontrollers, such as the Arduino. In this project, we will be using analog input and output to control a pair of LEDs, one red and one blue, which will mimic the flashing lights of a police car. This will be achieved by using a sensor, such as a motion sensor, to detect when a hand is waved in front of the LEDs. The reason for choosing this particular project is to gain a better understanding of analog input and output, as well as to create a fun and interactive project using the Arduino. By using a sensor to control the flashing of the LEDs, we can create a sense of realism and add an extra layer of interactivity to the project.

Reflections and improvements:

As someone who enjoys tinkering with gadgets and technology, working on an analog input and output project was a lot of fun for me. I was excited to see how the switch would work and how the output would be displayed on the screen. Unfortunately, the video of my project got corrupted and I was unable to show the switch in action (when pressed while the motion sensor was used the LED would flash).

Despite this setback, I was still happy with how the project turned out. The analog input and output functioned exactly as I had expected, and I was able to learn a lot about how these types of systems work. I enjoyed the process of building and testing the project, and it was satisfying to see it all come together in the end.

Looking back, there are a few things I would do differently if I had the chance to work on this project again. For one, I would make sure to back up the video of the project before showing it to others. This way, if something goes wrong with the video, I would still have a copy of it to refer to.
