Internal mega EEPROM

I want to know how to get the previous state after reset arduino. Here I want to use arduino mega EEPROM.
I wrote the example code like below. Please consider this as an example.

//proximity sensors
#define s1 2
#define s2 3
#define s3 4
#define s4 5
#define s5 6

int array={s1, s2, s3, s4,s5};

#define L1 7 //led outpts
#define L2 8
#define L3 9
#define L4 10
#define L5 11
#define L6 12

void setup(){
Serial.begin(9600);
pinMode(s1, INUPUT);
pinMode(s2, INUPUT);
pinMode(s3, INUPUT);
pinMode(s4, INUPUT);
pinMode(s5, INPUT);
pinMode(L1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L4, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L5, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L6,OUTPUT);

digitalWrite(L1, HIGH);
array[j]=EEPROM.read(0);
EEPROM.update(0,0);
}

void loop(){
Serial.println(“Sensor values printing”);
for(int j=0; j<5; j++){
EEPROM.update(0, array[j];
Serial.print(array[j];
}

if (S1==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L2, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L2, LOW);
}

if (S2==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L3, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L3, LOW);
}

if (S3==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L4, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L4, LOW);
}

if (S4==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L5, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L5, LOW);
}

if (S5==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L6, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L6, LOW);
}
}

I want to read and write the array values to EEPROM and according to that on or off the leds.
Above is my method to approach that.
But I didnt get any result through that approach.
Kindly appreciate your help for this.
Thanks in advance.

Please follow the advice on posting code in Read this before posting a programming question

In particular note the advice to Auto format code in the IDE and using code tags when posting code here

int array[]={s1, s2, s3, s4,s5};

So, array is an int

An int takes 2 bytes of storage

array[j]=EEPROM.read(0);

The read function reads a single byte

Can you see a problem (apart from the fact that j is undefined, that is) ?

ok …i told already this is an example so thats why i posted like that. :slight_smile:

//proximity sensors
#define s1 2
#define s2 3
#define s3 4
#define s4 5
#define s5 6

int array[]={s1, s2, s3, s4,s5};

#define L1 7  //led outpts
#define L2 8
#define L3 9
#define L4 10
#define L5 11
#define L6 12

void setup(){
Serial.begin(9600);
pinMode(s1, INUPUT);
pinMode(s2, INUPUT);
pinMode(s3, INUPUT);
pinMode(s4, INUPUT);
pinMode(s5, INPUT);
pinMode(L1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L4, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L5, OUTPUT);
pinMode(L6,OUTPUT);

digitalWrite(L1, HIGH);
array[j]=EEPROM.read(0);
EEPROM.update(0,0);
}

void loop(){
Serial.println("Sensor values printing");
for(int j=0; j<5; j++){
EEPROM.update(0, array[j];
Serial.print(array[j];
}

if (S1==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L2, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L2, LOW);
}

if (S2==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L3, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L3, LOW);
}

if (S3==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L4, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L4, LOW);
}

if (S4==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L5, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L5, LOW);
}

if (S5==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L6, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L6, LOW);
}
}

see this example i followed this youtube video …he also used integer data type not a byte

I want to know the correct method to do this
:slight_smile:

The easiest way to write arbitrary types to EEPROM is EEPROM.put(); to retrieve them, use EEPROM.get().

for(int j=0; j<5; j++){

EEPROM.update(0, array[j];
Serial.print(array[j];
}

This does not make sense, EEPROM cell 0 will always contain array[4]. And if all array elements contain different values, you will wear out your cell 0 in no time. If you want to update EEPROM with an array, the below should do (not tested)

EEPROM.put(0, array);

This will write 5 array elements to EEPROM cells 0, 1, 2, … 4

There seems a lot more wrong with your code. I suggest that you compile your code and fix the errors before posting; this possibly will also make it easier for us to understand what you’re trying to achieve.

Take note of what is said at about 4:28 in that video. He says one thing and does another and does not follow his own advice regarding the size of an int and what the write() function does

Take a look at EEPROM.put() and EEPROM.get() These functions can save and retrieve variables of any type

pinMode(s3, INUPUT); oops

pinMode(s3, INUPUT); oops

why ?

Raweesha:
why ?

What did the compiler say?

:slight_smile: in void loop it should be simple but here i want the answer to my main question
anyway pointout the faults in program is good

if (S5==HIGH){
digitalWrite(L6, HIGH);
}else{
digitalWrite(L6, LOW);
}

aka
digitalWrite (L6, S5);etc :wink:
