I need a simple Arduino script written. I know nothing about Arduinos. This would be very similar to existing game show lockout programs where there are two players, and they both hit their buttons. Whoever hits theirs first locks the other person out and a light and buzzer goes off for that player.
This program is to determine the winner of a race. Whoever breaks a laser beam first locks out the other turning on a relay that stays on for about 5 seconds. That relay would turn on the buzzer and light for the winner.
Setup. This is for a pumpkin rolling contest. There are two lanes. Each lane has it's own laser and receiver. whichever beam is broken first, locks out the other lane and activates the relay for that lane showing everyone which pumpkin was the fastest. This is for a Halloween Party.
What I have:
I have ordered an Arduino (This one: Arduino Uno R3 Development Board) I have the lasers and the relay boards that activate when the beam is broken. I also have the pumpkins and the racing ramp with the 2 lanes.
What I need:
A program to be written for the Arduino that listens for one of the relays to be activated. When that happens, it locks out and ignores the other relay. If the winner was lane one, the Arduino would lock out lane two and would activate another relay that would power up the buzzer and light for lane one. I plan to use a two channel 5V relay Module made for the R3 that will trigger the buzzers and lights for either lane.
When I need it:
As soon as possible. The event is on the 24th of this month. I need this in a few days. I imagine this is something that is already available in some Arduino library someplace, but I have neither the time nor experience to find it and set it up. I need whoever does this job to talk me through setting up the script on the Arduino and wiring it correctly. I do have experience with wiring and electronics in general, but not specifically with Arduinos.

Hello Sir I am a Mechatronics engineer and I have a lot of experience dealing with these things. I will definitely deliver your work on time and I will be pleased to do your project in a reasonable budget. Thank you
hi there, I'm a Mechatronics engineer with a great experience in embedded systems, I've been working with arduino for about 5 years, this task is straightforward for me, also I've the hardware component, I can do it.
Hey, I have read your project details with arduino, laser, and the relays. I could program arduino for you at a reasonable cost. As your logic is fairly simple it can be completed within a 24 hours max.
I am an electrical engineer and I have good experience in arduino and electronics. I have already made a project similar to this. I hope to make this project for you.
