Learning Arduino – Arduino and the 16 x 2 LCD Display

This project aims to display text using a 16 x 2 LCD Display. Having the ability to use an LCD display will surely come in handy for future projects where I will need to provide visuals.

Below are pictures showing you how to connect the LCD Display to the Arduino.

Below is the sketch to upload to your Arduino.

#include <Wire.h>
#include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>

// set the LCD address to 0x27 for a 16 chars and 2 line display
LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27,16,2);  

void setup()
  lcd.init();                      // initialize the lcd 

void loop()
  lcd.print("Welcome to ");

Check the short video below on this work.
