MIXING HELPER UPDATE!!!1!!!!111!@!


We worked on the code for the mixing helper, and used the Arduino to turn the mixer on!
We used not only an Arduino, but also a power switch tail to turn on the mixer using a Momentary lever switch.

Here is the code we used:
/*
Button

Turns on and off a light emitting diode(LED) connected to digital
pin 13, when pressing a pushbutton attached to pin 2.

The circuit:

  • LED attached from pin 13 to ground
  • pushbutton attached to pin 2 from +5V
  • 10K resistor attached to pin 2 from ground
  • Note: on most Arduinos there is already an LED on the board

attached to pin 13.

*/

// constants won’t change. They’re used here to
// set pin numbers:
const int buttonPin = 2; // the number of the pushbutton pin
const int ledPin = 13; // the number of the LED pin

// variables will change:
int buttonState = 0; // variable for reading the pushbutton status
int mixer=0;
//
void setup() {
// initialize the LED pin as an output:
pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
// initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:
pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);
}

void loop(){
// read the state of the pushbutton value:
buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);

// check if the pushbutton is pressed.
// if it is, the buttonState is HIGH:
if (buttonState == HIGH) {
// turn LED on:

digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);
}
else {
// turn LED off:
digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
}
}

//END OF CODE

We used the button example as the backbone of our code.

Our next steps include working on the speed of the mixer, and working more on the code!
