When I was a kid, there was a time when I believed I could control traffic lights. In truth, it was just dumb luck, but I would sit in the passenger seat while my parents or grandmother drove, and I would pretend that I was switching the light from red to green for them at each intersection.
With these ANAVI Traffic Lights for Raspberry Pi, I could finally have that power at my fingertips, and so can you. Even if you don’t want to control traffic lights on your Raspberry Pi, it’s still a unique addition to any project.
This open-source hardware add-on features red, yellow, and green LEDs and mounts vertically on the Raspberry Pi. It only uses four pins, so the remainder of the GPIO pins will still be open for the rest of your project.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can have up to 6 ANAVI Traffic Lights on a single Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin header. While they make a cool decoration, these traffic lights are a great project for those learning basic programming and soldering skills.
While they were originally designed for Raspberry Pi, you can also wire them to Arduino or other types of single-board microcontrollers. You can choose between a soldering kit, or a fully assembled add-on board, depending on your needs.
