I'm brand new in the world of Arduino, programming...actually, brand new in the world of electronics. I bought a Arduino starter kit a few weeks ago, because I would like to learn how to program micro controllers.
But, it's not that easy when your'e new in the field, so I need some help from you pro's! ;)
I'm in need of a device, that tells me how many rounds my wheel has turned - but(!), it has to convert it so 3 rounds = 1 on my display. 6 rounds = 2 on my display. 9 rounds = 3 on my display. and so on, and so on... I was thinking about placing a magnet on the wheel and a Reed switch below.
I have tried to make a program in the Arduino-program, but I can't make it work... There must be someone that have made the same (or something similar), because in my head the code shouldn't be that difficult to make.
I really hope there is someone on this forum that can help me out. I would appreciate it a lot!
Thanks in advance.
