The Police Siren Lights

by J.B. Wylzan
Project 5:  Police Siren Lights:

This project turns on the 9 Leds where each breaks away from the center repeatedly 
just like the dividing lights seen on police cars.




Hardware:
9 LEDs
9 resistors 
connecting wires
breadboard
Arduino R3 UNO board

Code # 5:
/*
  iHackLab Police Siren Lights
  powered by Arduino
  sketched by J.B. Wylzan
  modified by Lawsinium

  Leds break away on both sides from the center continuously.
  This example code is public domain.

 // Setup pins 4 to 12
void setup() 
 {
  pinMode(4, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(5, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(6, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(7, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(8, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(9, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(11, OUTPUT);
  pinMode(12, OUTPUT);

// Turns LEDs On and Off from left to right repeatedly,
void loop() 
{
  
  digitalWrite(8, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  delay(100);
  digitalWrite(8, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  delay(100); 
  
  digitalWrite(7, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(9, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
   delay(100); 
  digitalWrite(7, LOW);    // turn the LED off 
  digitalWrite(9, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  
  digitalWrite(6, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(10, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  delay(100);
  digitalWrite(6, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  digitalWrite(10, LOW);    // turn the LED off
  
  digitalWrite(5, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  digitalWrite(11, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
   delay(100);
  digitalWrite(5, LOW);    // turn the LED off
 digitalWrite(11, LOW);    // turn the LED off  

  digitalWrite(4, HIGH);   // turn the LED on 
  digitalWrite(12, HIGH);   // turn the LED on
  delay(100);
  digitalWrite(4, LOW);    // turn the LED off 
  digitalWrite(12, LOW);    // turn the LED off
}


Actual Layout:


Procedure:
1. Use the same prototype as shown above
2. Run the Arduino Interface
3. Select File > New
4. Copy Code #5 above
5. Paste Code #5
6. Click File > Save
7. Click Verify
8. Click Upload
9. Leds break away on both sides from the center continuously.

Be Creative:
Once you master the nuts and bolts in the Piezo Speaker project, go back to this page and add a police siren sound effect. Below is a partial sketch: 

int speakerPin = 3;
int numNotes = 8;
int notes[] = {1109, 523, 1109, 523, 1109, 523, 1109, 523};
