    I need help with this.
    Hi, I need help with this!
    I have a color sensor and Auduino Uno rev 3 with programs that can detect 3 colors Red Green and Blue that work just fine. I would like to add in the program 3 pieces relays of 5 volts.

    For example, when the color red is detected by the color sensor, the red LED lights up as long as the color sensor detects red.

    I need to add one relie get each of the colors.

    When the color sensor detects red color, the first relay should also have power, but only 1000 milliseconds and then cut the current to the relay, even if the color sensor is still reading red color.

    When the color sensor detects green color, the green color release should also be power but only 1000 milliseconds and then cut the power to the relay, even if the color sensor is still reading green color.

    When the color sensor detects blue color, the blue color output should be power but only 1000 milliseconds and then cut the power to the relay, even if the color sensor is still reading blue color.
    Can any of you help me to code the Audino Uno rev3
    That’s how it works.
    Hope for a posetive reply from Pål Thanks

    I am a mechanical engineer resident in South Africa whose
    I would like to commend you on the educational model that you have chosen. It so happens that I have aspirations to do something similar myself, with respect to seemingly promoting technology as a life career to learners rather than just a collection of courses and tasks.
    My question is: do you have any limitations or objections with regard to the use of your tutorials, videos, etc. by other parties for educational purposes. This includes presentation of content in its original form, such as YouTube videos?
    i ask this out of both respect and courtesy to to the amount of personal effort you have expended in producing commendable volumes of quality, applicable learning material.

    1. It is fine to show the videos from youtube, or material from this site, but they should not be dowlnoaded, copied, or republished.

  3. I am open to private communication on my intentions and any comments or suggestions you might have.
