Fun with Arduino 39 - OLED display SSD1306

#61

Post by RudyB » Mon Sep 09, 2019 11:32 am

We're going to add an OLED display to the ultrasonic distance measurement of the previous video. Together with a battery it now becomes a fully handheld portable device. This is just for fun, the actual purpose is to introduce the OLED display ... once we have that up and running there's a whole lot of fun and useful applications where they can be applied.

Fun with Arduino 40 - Station Platform Departure Display with Analog Clock

#62

Post by RudyB » Mon Sep 23, 2019 11:06 am

In the previous video we attached an OLED and we saw how to display a text and some lines. In this video we take this a step further, we'll make a station platform train departure sign with a working analog clock.

Via digital inputs a selection can be made of 6 different messages to display. This can be controlled via push buttons or via a DCC decoder.

The clock starts at a random time, this requires no other hardware than the Arduino and the OLED. In the next video we'll add a Real Time Clock module to make the clock run on actual time.

Fun with Arduino 41 Real Time Clock DS1307

The station platform clock of the previous video runs, but it shows a random time. We can add a Real Time Clock module to have it show the current time. Several versions of Real Time Clock modules are available. This video is about the DS1307 RTC, which can be had for under $1,-.

Hi Rudy, hope you are well; - good to find you on here - we chatted some months ago on your TC vids etc.
I now gotta relocate parts of an extensive loft layout (00/H0, non DCC) to the ground floor garage
'cos the old gent who built it is now virtually wheelchair bound.
Have got a Ard "UNO" on order & will soon be playing - so here's the scenario; -
I intend to fit a Hornby R070 TT with a stepper & hope to run this with TCG via Digikeijs hardware
I expect to be OK with the TT rework & sorting out the Arduino on pc...
but how to integrate this into the TC - your advice & suggestions would be much appreciated.

(Please understand I've not as yet observed any of your Arduino vids - so apology if the answer's already there).

Many thanks,
John
