Abstract

In this project, I created a stopwatch using a servo motor and implemented a clicker game that counts how many times the player is able to click a push button in 30 seconds. The servo motor stopwatch uses a for loop that positions the servo motor at 180 degrees (30-second mark), and ticks down every second until the position is 0 degrees (0 seconds) There was a conversion code used to maintain the accuracy of each tick. Within this for loop, there is a while loop that counts how many times the pushbutton is pressed each second and at the end, the amount for each second was summed up and displayed to show the user their final score. Prior to each game, there is a “3, 2, 1, Go!” sound effect that is created by a buzzer to indicate the start of the Clicker Game. There is also an alarm sound that indicates the end of the game.
