By SCLim RH2T Magazine, Vol.6, Sep 2010 I guess many of us find working on the predefined characters of the LCD is kind of boring after some time. Here I’ll show you how to create your own custom characters. Revision
BBFuino is a clone of Arduino which is specially designed to fit onto breadboard for prototyping and learning purposes. Like Arduino, it can be used to develop interactive objects like taking inputs from switches or sensors, controlling a variety of light motors and other physical outputs. BBFuino is using Atmel microcontroller Atmega328 loaded with Optiboot bootloader. This feature makes it compatible to Arduino IDE and sample codes provided by Arduino.
Ultrasonic range finder MAXSONAR-EZ1 which can measure the range from 6-inch to 254-inch with also an incredibly small package with ultra low power consumption. It’s provided sonar range information with 1-inch each step. The interface format is include pulse-width, analog and digital output. For this project, we are going to interface this sensor with Arduino and display the output range in inch in LCD display.
