Servo and LCD 2x16

With this example you will display the angle of a servo into a LCD 2x16. It uses the Servo, servo.h, library to control the servo and the Liquidcrystal, liquidcrystal.h, library to display the angle on the LCD.

What do we need?

  • One standard servo.
  • One display lcd 2x16.
  • One potentiometer.



The code: Display the servo angle into a LCD

This example is already in biicode. You can create your project and open the block or copy the code into a .cpp file:

$ bii init my_arduino_project
$ cd my_arduino_project
$ bii open examples/servolcd

Check the code inside your block's folder:


.. literalinclude:: ../../_static/code/arduino/examples/lcd_and_servo/lcd_and_servo.cpp
   :language: cpp

Build and upload the code

First, we have to configure the settings and select the arduino toolchain:

$ bii arduino:settings
$ bii configure -toolchain=arduino

Secondly, build this c++ example for arduino:

$ bii build

And upload it to your board:

$ bii arduino:upload

You are done! You'll see your servo moving and the angle into the LCD.
