Topic: CUCKOO CLOCK: SPARKFUN MP3 SHIELD WITH MOTORS AND TEMP SENSOR (Read 2136 times) previous topic - next topic


I am making a cuckoo clock with arduino UNO which takes time from Time.h.  It consists of operation of a Motor which moves fwd and backwards using a H Driver. It also operates a Servo in between.  I tried to make it  work with Sparkfun MP3 Shield to play music tracks during various phases of movement.  For the motor I have used pins not being used by the Sparkfun Shield.  However, the project behaves un-predictably with while using MP3 Player.   I am using SFEMP3Shield.h by bill porter to drive the Sparkfun MP3 Player. 

Does anyone have experience in such a project, are there any conflicts, should I use a different timer, or a RTC board. Is there any other method of playing music during various movements. I am attaching the sketch I have used.   I would be grateful for any assistance.
