Welcome back to another LR tutorial! In this article, I will show you how to configure your Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield V5. Set aside 30-45 minutes, and you'll be well on your way to displaying data from your Arduino or Sensors. In my Youth Robotics classes, we use Arduino Mobile Robots. I wanted to include an LCD so that there was an easy way to display sensor data and information without having to be tethered to a computer. Whether you're using a robot or not, this tutorial will help you set up your Arduino LCD using a Sensor Shield. Start by gathering the wiring diagrams and pinout maps for each of your components. For this project, I used the Sensor Shield V5 model and a 16x2 LCD. Both of these diagrams can be seen below.
Step 1 - Connect the Arduino Sensor Shield and the LCD module.
We will use the LC…
