Intro: 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:

  • 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

    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?

    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)
