I just purchased my first Arduino Uno board just today and I am doing my best to familiarize myself with the coding, software and hardware. If any of my questions are amateur, please forgive me.
My intended project:
I am looking to build device that contains a base Arduino Uno board, a Motor Shield and a KeyPad Shield. The function of the unit is to, once plugged into a power supply, allow the user to input the current time and date, then also input 2 other times of the day for the devices function to take place.
The function will be to spin a stepper motor backs and forth repeatedly for a total of one minute.
This motor will be attached to a device inside of a fish tank, a drum, that will agitate the media inside of this drum.
Here is a link to a video that shows a similar product that I am trying to duplicate:
Ideally I would like to have a battery backup to maintain memory.
I do have the Arduino code for the stepper motors rotations, but besides that, I would like to expand the functionality of the device.
If anyone could tell me if this project is feasible and if so, how complicated it may be and point me in the right direction to what more besides the keypad and motor shield, I may need.
Again, if any of my questions are naive or obviously green, please forgive me.
