Perhaps take a look at this tutorial series as it covers a number of basic concepts that you will likely need in your project:
Also Michael Margolis' Arduino Cookbook:
is a very useful resource for code snippets and wiring diagrams for working with a wide range of devices including keypads, displays and motor control.
Hello and thank you for reading this and helping me out.
Im still new to the arduino and all it can do, but I have a project I'm working on. I am trying to learn how to code in the IDE and I'm slowly getting the hang of it.
My question for anyone, is I want to be able to push a button, or series of buttons on one of the keypads that you can buy for the arduino. After the desired buttons are pressed I want a small flow meter to turn on for a set amount of time. I already have a code worked out that calculates and displays the total amount of liquid passed through it on the serial monitor. What I'm trying to figure out is how to I implement code into my sketch that will turn the motor off after a set amount of liquid has been sensed passing through?
Ideally, I have my arduino as the brain, the keypad as the input and I need to be able to turn on the motors and track the flow for X amount of time. At another time Id like to be able to also hook up a small LCD screen as well that will display a set message after buttons have been pushed.
If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance for any help.
