Now the Open LED Race project has evolved and we have created an assembly KIT for those who want all the components in one shop, if you already have some components you can check what you are missing by looking at the original list below
Seeed Studio WS2813 or WS2812 strip 60 Led/m 5m
BI pin first of WS2813 LED to GND.
WS2812 can also be used.
In the basic game mode, the only one implemented for the moment, is that the speed of the car is proportional to the pulsations of the control button, in the ascent ramps must be pressed more quickly to compensate for the effect of simulated gravity, but we have thought of options for other "arcade" mode in which on the track will happen things that will make you have to make decisions, fuel consumption, expenditure of tires, and must enter to boxes by a way of service and solve certain challenges to be able to continue the race. At the beginning each car is represented by two leds, and in each complete turn is increased by one led.
This project was done in a few days for the Arduino Day 2019 event, so it can be considered a work in progress, but here is shared the current status of the project, each should look for the materials available. The code is made dirty and fast, so it can also be improved.
Attitude maker and good luck!
We want to see what hacks you do with our project !!
