62  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: GPRS shield power and RTC on: June 10, 2014, 12:43:21 pm
And I've just had a quick play with the clock.

It is accessed using the AT+CCLK command, AT+CCLK? to read the time and AT+CCLK="yy/MM/dd,hh:mm:ss+zz" to set it, don't forget the time zone difference and it's two digits.

When power is disconnected the clock stops, and restarts when power reapplied. It doesn't reset.

I can't find a 1220 battery so I can check that it continues to run with one installed when the power is off, but that is my assumption.

As to the power requirements, the SIM900 data sheet says 2 amps for 577uS (every 4.615mS) when transmitting. Figure 5 on page 22.

However, it does need to transmit just to remain in contact with the network, not only to transmit a text / sms.

I've not had a play with the clock so can't help you on that score I'm afraid.

Why bother trying to do that? If a text costs 20p to send (and mine only cost 12p), sending one every quarter your initial top up will still last just over six years!

Replace the two lines of your code with the following:

Code:
SIM900.println("ATS0=3");
SIM900.println("ATH");   

You are using the wrong quotation marks.

Yes, and see if that makes a difference?

I don't see the word Volatile in your code  smiley-wink

Looks to me it's the red and black going out to the right, since the red is on digital pin 6 via the yellow.


That was my concern!

Where's the motor?

If by 9 volt battery you mean one of the small rectangular PP3 ones then you have no chance. Not only don't they have a lot of power you are immediately burning some of it off with the voltage regulator. And then you are running a motor off it?

Rechargeable single cell (AA, B, C, D)  batteries are 1.2 volts, so four of them will give you 4.8 volts. You could also consider one of the 'buck' converters to step the voltage up or down to 5 volts. I've not used one so can't offer any advice on that front.

Traffic lights? Have you tried the search box in the top right corner of the screen?

My project involved a T junction, and the lights would only trigger on a vehicle approaching on the minor road. But that was way back, when I was a student.

Not exactly the same, but it always amazes me the number of topics where the OP wants to take an inexpensive (or cheap clone) microcontroller, add a few peripherals and then, by the magic of software (which they cannot write otherwise it wouldn't be on the forum), they can replicate a device which costs hundreds or thousands of pounds / dollars.

Video editing is my favourite, followed by facial recognition!

Some seasoned developers have done very clever things with the Arduino, but well beyond the reach for the novice developers!
73  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino (uno) only works after uploading sketch. After reconnecting stops! on: June 02, 2014, 09:45:27 am
I have an Uno R2 with a similar affliction. Upload sketch, works fine, disconnect, reconnect and it's the bootloader blink that starts running. I changed processors in an attempt to fix it. After posting on here one of our mods drew my attention to a post detailing a modification to the board necessary to correct this.

However, I don't know if the OP has an R2 or not!
74  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: How to correct "expected unqualified-id before 'if' and else on: May 30, 2014, 04:42:15 am
Please post all of your code. The culprit is probably several lines before that point.

Try sending your message to the international style telephone number of the receiving device.
