    i cant really describe the project we're supposed to do..
    but we had to make a small car (an object with wheels-2 at the back and 1 in the front) with a pilot lamp
    everytime the wheel travels 1/2 of its circumference (circumference of the wheel) the pilot lamp turns on..if it goes full cycle, then it turns off..then if it goes 3/2 it goes on again..
    but when the mini car stops, the light doesnt turn on too..
    can someone explain how to do that.?? i dont know how to relate the turning of the wheel to the lamp..we also need at least 2 thyristors to do that..i guess it has something to do with the firing delay angle and conduction angle but i really dont know where to start..it is to be submitted 1 week from now..please..help :(

    Hall effect sensors; 555 timers - just to get you started. I don't have much time to devote to this right now however!
