LCD RANGE FINDER
As I am not at the after school club today. I decided to do some more Arduino hacking from the Arduino project handbook I have.
This worked first time, I decided to modify the code slightly. The section I modified is below
// convert the time into a distance inches = microsecondsToInches(duration); cm = microsecondsToCentimeters(duration); lcd.clear(); lcd.setCursor(0,0); lcd.print("dist to object:"); lcd.setCursor(0, 1); lcd.print(inches); lcd.print("in, "); lcd.print(cm); lcd.print("cm");
All this really does is to move the result to line 2 of the LCD and display dist to object on the top line, where dist is clearly short for distance.
I think this looks nicer. It does highlight the flexibility of coding in that you can add you own touches to projects.
