Hello all, I am a teacher of primary earliers and I want to make something interesting for the children and I ended up in deciding to do a behaviour lights.
I will set-up a lights done of wood as my dad is a carpenter and also I want to attach a dot matrix display to it to write names on it and with every name an indicator light (red, orange or green) will light up indicating the behaviour of the child that day. After some time the name written on the display will change and the indicator lamp of the light will change as well regarding the behaviour of the second student. Hope you understand a bit my project! Thanks in advance for helping me and hope to hear from you soon. I decided to do this with an arduino uno r3 and I will be using 2 displays of these. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/RED-32x8-LED-Matrix-Display-Board-3mm-Dot-/251267595901?ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:CA:1123
I just made a diagram for you to understand me more. Please do you know how or know any tutorials online of how to display on a dot matrix display with arduino. Please find attached the diagram. When it says visual studio it isn’t obligatory for me to use visual studio, I can even use the arduino sketch to display the name and choose which indicator to light on.
