Introduction: Temp. Sensor Display on LCD W/ Arduino

Picture of Temp. Sensor Display on LCD W/ Arduino

What it basically does:

This arduino project detects the temperature from the temperature sensor. Obviously when it detects the temperature it displays it on the serial monitor, which I personally think is very inconvenient. Now to solve that I have added an LCD and now instead of displaying the temperature on the serial monitor as usual, it displays it on the LCD.

Step 1: Materials That You WILL Need:

Picture of Materials That You WILL Need:
  • Arduino Uno or SparkFun Redboard
  • Breadboard
  • Temperature Sensor
  • LCD
  • Potentiometer
  • 19 Jumper Wires

Step 2: Start Wiring!

Step 3: All You Have to Do Now Is Code!

BTW: If you don't live in America then you should probably change the code to calculate the temperature in Celcius

what does an potentiometer does?

well very nice instructable. You have taken 5.0 V as reference voltage for the temp sensor. How much accuracy are you getting with that?

Thanks! I think its a really good temp. sensor, and the results are pretty sccurate.

Seems like a very incomplete instructable, at least very barebones. What temperature sensor did you use? Was it a Dallas sensor or..?

Sorry about that, Im still very new to instructables. Anyways the temperature sensor that I used is called a a TMP36(Precision Temperature Sensor)
