Similarly, when the output is a zero (or off ), then it is important that the voltage is as close to zero volts as possible. If you do not ensure that the states are close to the required voltages, then that part of the circuit may be considered to be “floating,” that is, it is neither in a high or low state. This is where pull-up or pull-down resistors can be used to ensure the state is high or low. If you let that node in the circuit “float,” then it may be interpreted as either a zero or a one, which is not desirable.

We have simply added a potentiometer to our hardware, and the code has additions to enable us to read the values from the potentiometer and use them to adjust the speed of the LED chase effect. We first declare a variable for the potentiometer pin number int potPin = 2; as our potentiometer is connected to analog pin 2. To read the value from an analog pin, we use the analogRead command. The Arduino has 6 analog input/outputs with a 10-bit analog-to-digital convertor (we will discuss bits later on).

However, we have added an extra two LEDs and their respective current-limiting resistors to represent the pedestrian crossing lights. We have also included a switch so that you can control the lights and learn about reading an input pin. 36 Chapter 2 ■ Light ‘Em Up Table 2-4. Parts Required for Project 4 2 x Red Diffused LEDs Yellow Diffused LED 2 x Green Diffused LEDs 10KW Resistor 5 x Current-Limiting Resistors Pushbutton The five resistors for the LEDs are there to limit the current (and are thus called current limiting) going to the LED to prevent damage.
