I am a science teacher and am interested in building a timer utilizing photoelectric sensors to start the timer and record 4 times as the the remaining four sensors are tripped. The 4 recorded times could either be displayed on a screen or written to a downloadable file to an application like Excel.
First, is this something doable with the Arduino board? Second, would someone with little programming experience but a lot of motivation (me) be able to figure it out? :smiley-mr-green:
Thanks for any responses!
Simply yes, and without even the hint of a shadow of a doubt, yes. And there's heaps of advice on these forums for when you get stuck of course.
What events will trigger your sensors?
Its not exactly what you want, but its close -
