    88For our project we will use the Arduino Uno board as our platform.  The Arduino sketch provided will detect any time one of the digital pins changes it state. If it goes from High to Low or Low to High it will transmit that pin number back to the computer so the Flip Side Racing software can detect laps.  The pins are tied to an internal 20K ohm pull-up resistor so to detect changes your sensor or switch will need to be tied to the ground pin of the Arduino.  The Arduino sketch looks for changes on digital pins 2 through 10.

     18Using these examples I constructed a lap counter for a slot car track with switches in the track to detect the cars.  Similar approaches could be used for RC vehicles by replacing the switches with sensors to detect a break in a laser beam or infrared light.

     20After you have built your hardware you will need to upload the [http://www.flipsideracing.org/downloads/fsdio.zip Flip Side Dio sketch] and write it to the Arduino Uno.  If you are unfamiliar with how to do this the [http://www.arduino.cc Arduino web site] has detailed tutorials you can use such as the ones located in the [http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/HomePage Getting Started section].
