Pages: . Hello, I have a problem with counting steps. It seems to work but sometimes it registers more counts then I do. For example, a single step counts as 2, more rarely it sends many register calls to my serial port with a single step still. It might be a hardware problem, but unfortunately, I don't own an oscilloscope to check it. Counting is triggered by the interruption. And its purpose is to change the screen on LCD. I've tried to avoid this overcounting by using Quote. Code: [Select]. PickyBiker Sr. It would be more useful to see all of the code. ISRs are not meant to be functions full of code and calls to other functions. You should NOT be doing an Serial. You should only be setting flags and then reacting to those flags in your main loop. Okay so I followed what blh64 said, and clear out isr function. The first approach was just simple steps counting and printing on LCD. The variables you use within the ISR need to be declared 'volatile' so the compiler does not optimize things and potentially break them. You should also turn off interrupts while accesing your volatile variable since accessing a long int is multiple bytes and is not atomic. Try this: Code: [Select]. Thanks for the reply, I get the idea. However, it doesn't help much. I still notice skipping. You turn interrupts off in your screenChangeListener function, which is good, but you leave them off until the end of the function. You should not have them off that long, especially during your menu. I'm guessing that function may take some time. You only need interrupts off during the copy You also declare a variable 'encoderTime' and then never set it but use it in your isr. This makes this line Code: [Select]. Yeah ur right, I forgot about updating encoderTime. However, it doesn't much. As I dived more into encoder topics, it seems like this kind of simple detection won't be effective anyway. For now, I will stick to the encoder external library. I already tested it and it seems to work just fine. Thanks for the help anyway, this knowledge will help me with future projects using interruptions. If the encoder library works, you could always take a look at the code and compare it to what you where doing to try and learn what is different and why it works Or just use it and move along Quote from: blh64 on Apr 08,pm.
Arduino LCD Set Up and Programming Guide
Let's Learn how to make an Arduino pushbutton counter. I used digispark attiny85 Arduino, but it will work with any Arduino. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Question 5 months ago on Step 2. Can you help me expand this idea a bit? I want to build a punch counter for my son's martial arts club. It will count the number of hits to a punching board bag in 45 seconds. Although it might be possible to trigger it with a switch, I think an accelerometer might be the way to go. I have all the parts to build, but I am a complete beginner on the programming side and I could use some help. I want to learn this stuff, but I need this project sooner than later. Introduction: Arduino Push Button Counter. By VolosR Follow. More by the author:. Add Teacher Note. We need : -Arduino board -TM -4 digits dispaly module -push button resistor -breadboard and wires You will also need library for the module, download and install library using the link bellow. Did you make this project? Share it with us! I Made It! Particle Sniffer by rabbitcreek in Arduino. Answer Upvote. DennisPropellerHead 2 years ago. Reply Upvote. Ideally, what I envision is a reset button, triggering a set of warning beeps Best Regards, Dennis.
Arduino Lcd Counter
Pushbuttons or switches connect two points in a circuit when you press them. This example turns on the built-in LED on pin 13 when you press the button. For more circuit examples, see the Fritzing project page. Connect three wires to the board. The first two, red and black, connect to the two long vertical rows on the side of the breadboard to provide access to the 5 volt supply and ground. The third wire goes from digital pin 2 to one leg of the pushbutton. That same leg of the button connects through a pull-down resistor here 10K ohm to ground. The other leg of the button connects to the 5 volt supply. When the pushbutton is open unpressed there is no connection between the two legs of the pushbutton, so the pin is connected to ground through the pull-down resistor and we read a LOW. When the button is closed pressedit makes a connection between its two legs, connecting the pin to 5 volts, so that we read a HIGH. You can also wire this circuit the opposite way, with a pullup resistor keeping the input HIGH, and going LOW when the button is pressed. If so, the behavior of the sketch will be reversed, with the LED normally on and turning off when you press the button. That's why you need a pull-up or pull-down resistor in the circuit.
