Seeeduino Stalker RTC Code ("hello, world")

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Here's some simple code for the Seeeduino Stalker that can optionally reset the RTC and then prints the current time. It's not well-speced but the Stalker uses the standard DS-1307 real-time clock (RTC) so all the routines that use that library should just work plug-n-play:


#include <Wire.h>

#include "Time.h"
#include "DS1307RTC.h"

void setup() {

// the next two lines can be removed if the RTC has been set
// setTime(6,51,0,6,8,10);
// set time to 17:05:00 1 Mar 2010 (see below)
// RTC.set(now()); // set the RTC to the current time (set in the previous line)

// format for setting time - setTime(hr,min,sec,day,month,yr);

setSyncProvider(RTC.get); // the function to get the time from the RTC


void loop() {
Serial.print( "The time is ");
Serial.print( year() );
Serial.print( month() );

Serial.print( day() );
Serial.write(' ');
Serial.print( hour() );

Serial.print( minute() );

Serial.println( second() );
