Reading a 16x2 LCD screen Answered
I have a rather technical question for you guys.
I have a big, company-suited coffee machine which I'd like to mod, to be internet connected.
My idea is to read the LCD screen of the machine, by intercepting the wires, and interpreting the signals with a microcontroller.
I'd need to read the data, and convert it into ASCII, so I can drop them on a website, and in fact have a (sort of live) view of the LCD.
The used LCD is a standard 16x2, 16-pin LCD. Does anyone have any experience with doing this? Or any tips? I couldn't find a project online which wanted to do the same thing as I did.
Thanks in Advance,
