I'm building an alarm clock on a motorized vehicle. Vehicle moves and buzzer sounds when alarm goes off.
I programmed the clock and it is displayed on an Arduino LCD. The display and buzzer work fine.
When I add the two DC motors into the mix, they spin when the alarm goes off, however, the LCD goes fuzzy simultaneously.
I'm using an Arduino Rev3 Motor Shield.
The whole project is powered by 4 AA batteries (6V). I though maybe it was not enough voltage so I tried a 9V and with that when the alarm sounds the LCD resets itself.
Any thoughts guys and gals?? This is a school project due in a week!
