Soiree Pratique: Robot Competition: How to start

Nov
19

During the competition, your robot may only start 5 seconds after we give the sign to start the round. To accomplish this, you can press a button or remove a wire. The easiest way to implement this is through a digital pin. You can configure an internal pull-up resistor on the digital pins (except for pin 13), in the following way:

pinMode(pin, INPUT); // set pin to input

digitalWrite(pin, HIGH); // turn on pullup resistors
