Serial monitor to LCD

How do I get the LoRa send and receive examples to go to lcd. I have checked the LCD with hello world and it's OK but I can not get the LoRa hello on the example to go to LCD. It will go to the monitor but not the LCD and if I can solve this then I can finish my project that I will post for everyone to see, use what ever.Thank youSteve

RTC Alarm using serial monitor

Hi, I have an arduino UNO and RTC DS1307. I want to make an alarm that just displays on the serial monitor of arduino UNO. I can make the RTC show the right time on the serial monitor, however I want an alarm to go off on the serial monitor. Also, is there any way that I can change the alarm time on the serial monitor? Like I can type from my keyboard and the time changes? One more question, How can I make arduino do multitasks using RTC. Like when the alarm goes off, it can run a small DC motor and also a Pizep Buzzer.  Please help me with this, as I desperately need a help :((

How arduino shows output on Serial Monitor? Answered

Because inorder to display output of any microcontroller in Computer we have to Use MAX232 interface. Microcontroller uses TTL(Transistor Transistor Logic) and Computer Uses RS logic. Max 232 converts TTL into RS Logic so that the output of microcontroller will be displayed in computer. But there is no MAX232 used in arduino board. Then how Arduino is displaying output in serial monitor.

Serial communication on Arduino? Answered

I tested a QRD1114 reflective sensor using a voltage meter, and was working great. I was getting good responses from the sensor (one of the sensors I was using had a bad LED which was not working, but the sensor worked fine with an external IR LED that I had laying around.) But as soon as I hooked it up to an analog input pin of my arduino board, and used the serial communications to display the reading from the sensor on the serial monitor, every reading would be 1023 (which should be the highest possible reading) even when there wasn't anything near the sensor. I changed the pin, so I know it isn't a defective pin. I repeated the test with a photo cell and got similar results. what could be the problem, and what can I do about it?

How to input NUMBERS through Arduino serial.monitor ???

Hello ... I would like to ask, how can my Arduino read/store a number that I sent through the serial.monitor ??? For example ... if I want to say to Arduino, how fast it should flash a LED or how fast should a motor turn. So it reads, what number I write to the serial.monitor and then use it. I was trying to find the answer in arduino forum, but I could not find it. What I was able to find are these infos : 1. I have to check, if it is a number (from 0-9) or a character ... (I have no problem with that) 2. it has to stored and then convert to number Thank you in advance. Zholy

Question by lunchboxslayer27  


convert any CRT TV or monitor into a vector (XY) monitor?

NOTE: I since found a couple links that might shed some light on the question... From HackIt: New uses for old CRT monitors http://hackaday.com/2008/02/25/hackit-new-uses-for-old-crt-monitors/ It would be very hard to do, but it is possible a CRT could be converted to a vector monitor. Perfect for playing Asteroids, perhaps under MAME. You would have to replace all the control circuits, probably with an FPGA and three ADCs (x/y/intensity). Posted at 8:58 am on Feb 25th, 2008 by MoJo Television and PC monitor experiments http://www.educypedia.be/electronics/televisionexperiments.htm old cga/vga monitor to oscilloscope ? http://www.edaboard.com/ftopic57853.html The inquiry: Maybe I am over-simplifying but I was reading one of those examples of hacking into a CRT's horizontal & vertical yoke controls to sync to music:     http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/707/how-to-make-mac-se30-audio-visualizers and had the idea that it should be possible to create a DIY XY monitor (vector display like on an oscilloscope, Vectrex, Asteroids, etc.) for an Arduino or other uC, MAME or Vectrex emulator, from any TV or CRT, once you have hacked into the electron gun's yokes. My understanding being: Raster display: the horizontal yoke (an electromagnet) sweeps the electron gun from left to right turning on the beam wherever there's a "pixel" at that line (which lights up the phosphor at that point making it visible), then it starts over at the next line (vertical yoke moves down) and draws the next line, and so on, Vector display: instead of rendering a moving image frame-by-frame using top to bottom/left to right scanning, shapes are drawn directly to the screen by positioning the horizontal & vertical yokes at the starting point, the beam turns on, and the yokes repoint to the end point, thus "drawing" the line inbetween the 2 points (I would assume this is for straight lines, not sure if circles or arcs are possible?) then the beam turns off, and the yokes get re-positioned to the next line's starting point. I'm not sure what turns the beam on & off or what kind of timing might be involved, obviously that needs to be controlled somehow. Or for color, where instead of a single white (or green, amber, etc) phosphor exists per pixel, there are multiple (red, green, blue) per pixel, and the beam hits each one at varying strengths (or for a varying length of time?) to 'mix" the primaries to the desired color? I'm not sure how that gets handled in a color vector monitor, but I would assume it's something similar to raster? So if we can hack into a CRT's X/Y yokes and move them around with an audio signal, can we control the yokes more deliberately from a microcontroller to plot specific shapes or text, hence a vector display? For those audio/TV hacks, what is the audio signal doing to the yokes that causes them to move? Whatever it is - voltage, resistance, etc - this is what our device would have to control. Possible proof of concept version: make a device to control the yokes' position etch-a-sketch style with a couple of potentiometers, and turn on the beam with a switch or button. If you see a dot of light moving across the screen then it works. I am thinking the controller might need to be "calibrated" for the individual CRT? (Maybe build some kind of calibration mode into the device.) You might dedicate a microcontroller to driving the display - it could receive text or vector shape coordinates via serial, store the shapes to draw in its own memory, and persist or refresh the image independently, freeing up processing power for whatever device it's displaying for. Another idea would be maybe add some kind of way to read light pen's coordinates, thus making the CRT an input device that can be read from the microcontroller or PC (the Vectrex had a light pen right?)  [This would be a cool mod for the Arduino composite TVout as well.] So is this idea possible without a ridiculous amount of work & parts?  I may be dead wrong about how this stuff works (I'm sure that if this was possible, someone would have done it by now?) but figured it can't hurt** to put the idea out there. I have visions of 4-player vector Arduino pong, Asteroids, Tempest, PDP-1 Spacewar!, vector NES Duck Hunt, a vector etch-a-sketch or lightpen drawing or animation program, or vector Atari Video Music. Possibly an open source color vector games system. Or just a vector display system for any Arduino or microcontroller project, made from any TV. **WARNING: maybe it CAN hurt... Evidently hacking into any CRT can be deadly, you have to discharge the CRT and capacitors properly or you can get killed. So please be careful. This definitely is NOT for kids to try at home.

Arduino: How do I convert a decimal to ASCII? Answered

I'm following this Instructable which is about communicating between 2 Arduinos with RF modules. The received value is stored in buff[0]  and if this value is "1", a light switches on. However, I was going to experiment with sending values other that 1 or 0 from the other Arduino and first added Serial.println(but[0]) but in the serial monitor, it read 49, which if you treat as a decimal value and convert ASCII, you get "1". Equally, when "0" was sent from the sending Arduino, the monitor read 48, which is decimal of the ASCII value "1". I'm a bit confused as the if-statement below works fine. Basically, I want "1" and "0" to be printed to the serial monitor not 48 and 49. How do I do this? Thanks, theRedBryophyte Serial.println(buf[0]); if(buf[0]=='1'){   //some code here... }

Counting Heartbeat with Arduino: Help with Code?

I got a premade heartbeat sensor which uses an IR led and an IR receiver to sense heartbeat. It gives out an analog signal, which i have connected to my Arduino's A0 pin, and uploaded the analogRead sketch to it(sends values to serial port too). Then to visualize the heartbeat i used a processing graph program that took the values from the serial port. When i place my finger on the sensor,  i get this graph shown below:   Yes its very clear, but can anyone help me with the code? it just needs to measure the beats per minute, and store it in a variable.  ** The spike in the grph showing the pulse varies in height sometimes. So the code should calbrate and all. Also there is a 1-2 second delay before the clean pulse comes...

Adding custom peripherals to your computer via the serial port

Notifications from Android to Arduino via Bluetooth

Xbox 360 Mouse control via a PC. - Could it be done, and does anybody want to do it?

An idea and a question. Firstly. I have acquired an Xbox 360 ( oh yay.. ) but being a pc gamer, I never use it due to the control limitations. I can't kill anything with a paddle, whereas with a mouse I cannot be stopped. :] Now, I've searched and searched, and there are hardware modifications to allow the use of a mouse, but these are out of the question for myself and many others as I'd imagine. The idea: What I would like to do, or see done, is have a PC with software on it, and an adapter of some sort or another to run from the PC to an Xbox 360 USB port ( serial to USB data+ and data- ? ) The PC software would make the Xbox see the pc as a controller, from there the software on the pc could take inputted signals and output them to the xbox as though it was a regular controller.  I realize the software could be a fair challenge to make, but it would make some of us PC gamers fairly happy, being given the chance to whoop the buts of those on regular consoles.  The Question: Is anybody reading this capable of writing the software and making an adapter, and if someone is, would they be willing to do it? Thoughts: Perhaps an Xbox controller's signals could be monitored and mapped by watching the controller's output over USB. I am unsure if there is software to do this but I'd bet my house and left leg that it could be done via the Linux command line though.. ;) Would it be possible to connect two serial connections directly with the two USB data pins? A setup with minimal hardware would be ideal for most, if possible. ( referring to the things you need to build )  ^ - would it be fast enough? Any input would be appreciated.  -Jake

ESP8266 has red led but not active after flashing

Hi Guys.I've been tinkering with ESP8266 for a couple of weeks now. It worked before the weekend, and now with only some code changes it stopped (but it does not seem to crash).My project: Tabletop clock with weather. For now I'm trying to get weather from openweather API via ESP8266. I actually managed to do the request, and now was trying to parse JSON, and at this point it stopped working.My setup: USB CP2104 CP2102 - UART TTL flashing stick Arduino Uno - only provides power to ESP (see below), RX/TX not connected.ESP8266 CH_PD and VCC powered from Arduino Uno 3.3V pin GPIO2 is connected to GND. The rest of pins are connected to the flashing stick.Problem: 1. I run flashing from Arduino IDE. 2. Compilation is ok, uploading is ok on 115200 baud, serial monitor is also 115200. 3. Sketch uploading progress is visible in IDE terminal, blue LED on ESP is rapidly blinking while uploading. 4. After upload is finished, I see something like "tail 8, checksum ... " in the serial monitor.Then I do not see anything in serial monitor. The red LED on ESP is very weak after flashing - the last time I tried to flash it - it is not visible with the lights on. The ESP does not connect to router (according to router info).Also one strange sideeffect - after flashing, wi-fi drops on my laptop.What may be the issue? Thanks.

Messed up =( No problem here

I'm having a problem with my Arduino IDE where I can't upload my programs. I have tried multiple version: 1.6.9, 1.6.13, 1.8.4, 1.8.5 but the problem is always there. To test each version I used a test program that should have said "Hi" in the serial monitor, but every test resulted in the following errors:If someone could please help me fix this problem, it would be grately appreciated!Thanks, Matt

Problem with arduino PS2X livrary receiver

Hi! I' ve been using a ps2 wireless controller with arduino with the PS2X library for 3 days and it worked fine. After that i've tried to move the wiring to an arduino nano instead of the uno and it didn't work. Then I went back to the uno and realised that the receiver doesn't work anymore with the code. Cand someone help me? It says in the serial monitor" controller not found" . The receiver works fine on PC.

Arduino Clinometer for vehicle

I'm building a Clinometer for a vehicle, that will show roll & pitch, and log this data as well as yaw (skid). I'm using a 3 axis accelerometer with an Arduino, and am looking for ideas on improvements. I have the g forces for the 3 axis being displayed in the serial monitor, and am ready to display values on a LCD, but really thinking this should be graphics of a vehicle showing pitch and roll, like the old Jeep Clinometer I had as a teen. https://www.instructables.com/id/An-Arduino-Accelerometer/

Arduino morse code help?

There are two ideas that I would like to be put together on the arduino (since I'm a noob I don't have the programming skills); a morse code AM RADIO transmitter that you can use a keyer instead of the serial monitor to send your message.  Here is the website code for the transmitter part http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1170901754 Here is the website code for the keying part http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1291092651 How can this be done? Thanks for helping out.

Connect two computers through USB to use ports on other computer?

Can I connect my main computer, (Dell E310) to my work computer, (Dell GX1) to use the ports on teh GX1? My e310 doesnt have a serial or parallel port, and the GX1 has both. The GX1 is very slow, but has usb. My current setup prohibits me from simply transering my monitor and peripherals to the GX1. I have qemu, and VMware, if those are of any help... Help?... Tyeo

4 Potentiometers with Arduino? Answered

Hey, I'm not understanding something here.  If I hook up a pot (left 9v, middle A0, right GND), I get a varying voltage into pin A0 on Arduino. Then Arduino converts this into whatever. Well when I hooked up 4 potentiometers parallel to the same battery, and had them on pins A0-A3, none of the pots worked. Whenever I turned one pot, it would change the value for all the others (i was using serial monitor). How do I correctly hook up four pots to Arduino?

Need help making a door alarm that triggers actions on my computer.

What I'm trying to do is make a door alarm that would be connected to my computer and triggers a wav or mp3 and also sends a text message to my phone. I was thinking of maybe using an arduino that I have. I need a script or program that would monitor serial ports and call up a program. I'm am not sure how to go about doing this. If anyone has any experience with this sort of thing your help would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know the pinout of this chip?

Hello fellow Arduino-ists I've got an old laser mouse (DELL M-UVDEL1) and I want to get my arduino uno or mega (I've got both) to read the data it sends out and print it to the serial monitor. First, can anyone tell me the pinout of the chip on the following picture: http://imgur.com/oy4si, bakside: http://imgur.com/B4sQM, then I think I can work from there, unless anyone wants to help me even more by posting an example code, that would be great

How Can I Reduce Current Without Dropping The Voltage?

Hello friends,                       i am making home automation with IR sensor , The problem is that the IR sensor sends random garbage values to arduino's serial monitor when connected to external power supply. The external power supply has output of 5v DC voltage and 2000mA current. The whole system worked perfectly when I take power from computer's USB port . The problem is how to reduce the current to 0 -500 mA of external power supply. thank you !
