I'm relatively new to Arduino and microcontrollers in general. Currently I'm studying Robotics and Embedded systems and the current course I am in is requiring a project that I've been working on for a bit. I would like to turn in a finished functional product, but I'm having issues sorting everything out. I have about 2 weeks from today to finish up and turn in the assignment. It doesn't necessarily have to work as this is an exercise in creative thinking/RSA. But, I would like to prove success if possible.
I'm attempting to create a single digit clock and using a secondary RGB LED with color indicating place of the digit in a HH:MM time format.
I've got both the 7-segment and LED working.
I'm using a datalogger/RTC shield from adafruit to attempt to get the RTC time. But, I'm having a problem getting the time from the RTC (PCF8523) and displaying that to the 7 -segment. The current sketch I have I am able to do a count up/down. But I guess I'm unclear as to how to code the correct function to get the time and display it to the seven segment. Any guidance would be appreciated.
