To make the PlayRobotics Smart Race Track even more exciting and advanced, we have developed a special Upgrade Kit.
In this series of lessons you will learn about the new electronic components included in this kit, how to program them, and how to add them to the racing game.
If you bought the Smart Race Track kit and the Upgrade Kit at the same time, we have already installed the upgrades for you. You don’t need to perform these next steps and can skip to the next lesson.
Connect the cable like so:
Re-attach the transparent cover as seen below:
Now, attach the MP3 player to the control unit using screws:
Important: We are not going to attach the MP3 player cable to the main board at this stage.
If you do, you will get an error while programming Arduino (more about this later).
For now we will just “hide” it so it won’t get in the way:
Well done! the new components are now installed and we are ready to start using them in our racing game!
In the next lessons, we will learn to program our LED strips.
