How to implement a software reset?


I’m building a laser turret. I’ve managed to get it working pretty well, but there’s one thing I’m not sure how to implement.

I’ve programmed an old remote control using the IR library to operate the device, but I’d like to shut the whole thing off using a software reset. I need to connect the output of a digital output (say D5) to the reset pin on my nano.

Could someone suggest how to go about doing that? Is there a mechanism in place to do that already?

Hi, you could implement watchdog in such a way that if a signal is received a reset occurs. This way it would not require external components.

Thank you for the suggestion, Cesars. I will look into it and see what I can do!

Thanks again!
