GROVE Pressure Sensor BME280 on Normal LCD1602 I2C Display

In a previous tutorial WE have seen the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino from SEEEDSTUDIO https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/grove-beginner-kit-for-arduino-seeedstudio-first-steps-with-the-arduino-uno-r3-and-nano-maker-makered-maker-spaces-coding/, and THE BREAKOUT to use the different modules with OWN Code examples.

WE were ALSO using the OLED module as a BREAKOUT in this tutorial https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2020/10/21/grove-beginner-kit-for-arduino-seeedstudio-the-breakout-temperature-humidity-on-oled-display-first-steps-with-the-arduino-uno-r3-and-nano-maker-makered-maker-spaces-coding/

In this tutorial WE will use the BREAKOUT of the GROVE Pressure-Module BME280 together with a NORMAL I2C LCD1602 display, ONLY 4 wires to connect. At that moment I didn’t yet receive my ordered GROVE LCD1602 display, so the suspense was great to find out… I was curious to find out if that would ALSO work and it did with a few changes of code.

Check out the wiring below, please:

GROVE Pressure Sensor BME280 on GROVE LCD1602 Display

In a previous tutorial WE have seen the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino from SEEEDSTUDIO https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/grove-beginner-kit-for-arduino-seeedstudio-first-steps-with-the-arduino-uno-r3-and-nano-maker-makered-maker-spaces-coding/, and THE BREAKOUT to use the different modules with OWN Code examples.

WE were ALSO using the OLED module as a BREAKOUT in this tutorial https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2020/10/21/grove-beginner-kit-for-arduino-seeedstudio-the-breakout-temperature-humidity-on-oled-display-first-steps-with-the-arduino-uno-r3-and-nano-maker-makered-maker-spaces-coding/

In this tutorial WE will use the BREAKOUT of the GROVE Pressure-Module BME280 together with a GROVE LCD1602 display. As the GROVE LCD1602 display is not included in the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino, WE will need to buy it! Here below the address:

.

Well, as you can see in above photo there is NO cabling!! You just need to connect the connectors from the BME280 and the LCD1602 to the I2C BUS. Less than a minute work and you are ready to upload the code, which you will find in below link:

.

The GROVE LCD1602 display is a RGB display, meaning that you can change its color to RED, GREEN, BLUE! Play around with the code to experiment…

Thoughts about WHAT to choose as Xmas gift for kids in a Technology driven world

Thoughts about WHAT to choose as Xmas gift for kids in a Technology driven world

.

.


WHAT gifts to buy for the kids for Xmas and Holidays?

Every year the same question, isn’t it!? WHY not thinking about to buy gifts from where and with that the kids will learn? It might be good to have a look on WHAT are the skills required for the future from youth, students, learners and upon that making your choice! Actually (2020) the trends are in the maker scene and coding scene! Engineers, coding people and ICT specialists are needed, the workforce, industry is searching!!

WHAT is the Coding Scene?

Coding is THE 21st Century skill. Coding enhances creativity, teaches young people to cooperate, to work together across physical and geographical boundaries and to communicate in a universal languageTechnology is part of our life, and coding brings it closer to you!

.

I invite you to read my blog posts below, please:

MY selection of CODING Hardware for beginners

Well, I started myself years ago as a NEWBIE in Coding and so I tried out different stuff, whereby I became a fan of ARDUINO. Here below my gift selection for Christmas (Xmas) which I recommend:

.

ARDUINO-UNO-STARTERKIT-1

 

.

.

.

.

Elegoo Smart Robot Car Kit for Arduino

..

While reading my above tutorials, you will find ALSO more examples in my blog about “Coding with Arduino, etc.); stay tuned for next tutorials with LEARNingByDoing with FUN and PracTICE 😉

Temperature/Humidity on OLED Display | THE Breakout

In a previous tutorial WE have seen the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino from SEEEDSTUDIO https://gustmees.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/grove-beginner-kit-for-arduino-seeedstudio-first-steps-with-the-arduino-uno-r3-and-nano-maker-makered-maker-spaces-coding/, now WE make THE BREAKOUT to use the different modules with OWN Code examples.

You can also take the modules out and use Grove cables to connect the modules. To do so, you need a sharp cutter, see PIC, please.

.

.

My recommendation for sharp cutters, which I use as well:

.

 

.

Once cut out you have made the BREAKOUT and in this case the two modules “OLED Display 0.96 inch” and “Temperature/Humidity” modules are ready to get connected to the main module. NOW we have to connect them through the delivered connection cables. Here below a picture:

.

.

As you can see, the OLED-Module is connected to the I2C connector, while the “Temperature/Humidity-Module” is connected to the “D3” connector. See PIC below, please:

.

.

SO WHY the “D3” connector for the “Temperature/Humidity-Module”?! Well, let us have a look on the code:

.

.

As you can see in this shown part of the code, there is marked ===> “#define DHTPIN 3“, SO it should GET connected to the “D3-connector” on the main board! If you use “D4” or whatever connector, SO you should change the code from “3” to “4” and so on!!! Give it a try and play around with it for understanding 😉

.


Temperature/Humidity on OLED Display | THE Code

Well, the two connections with the provided cables with connectors took ONLY a few seconds, ISN’T it? 😉 Let’s GO now to upload the code. Open your “Arduino IDE“, click on “NEW“, erase the few lines marked in there, make a “Copy&Paste” from the mentioned Code below and paste it in the “Arduino IDE (NEW)” and upload it, here below the code:

.

.

As you can see there is a “special” indication on the display, THE “Heat Index“, WHAT is it?! I encourage you to read my following tutorial which explains:

 

Have fun learning with PracTICE and stay tuned for next adventures of learning 😉
