An identifier (ID) is assigned to a software timer when the timer is created, and can be
changed at any time using the vTimerSetTimerID() API function.
If the same callback function is assigned to multiple timers, the timer identifier
can be inspected inside the callback function to determine which timer actually
The timer identifier can also be used to store data in the timer between calls
to the timer’s callback function.
The timer being updated.
The handle to which the timer’s identifier will be set.

and executed its callback function is stored in the
timer's ID. Retrieve the count, increment it, then save
it back into the timer's ID. */
