    Water level sensor

    Hi, I am doing water level sensor. I want to display 3 different values in my 7 segment. For example when the water level reaches 10cm which is the alert(A) the 7 segment also need to show 10,when the water level reaches 20cm which is the warning(W) the 7 segment also need to show 20 and when the water level reaches 30cm which is the emergency(E)the 7 segment also need to show 30. But right now with the below code it can only shows the emergency level(E) where the water level reaches 30cm the 7 segment also show 30 but cannot display for other 2 levels. The code uses C progremming. What are the changes need to be made in the code. Please respond to me as soon as possible. Thank You.

    While I have limited micro controller experience and my C is rusty (just getting back into the swing) - I think you'll find you need to analyse the code within the following block to find the answer:

    Code:
    else if(packet.frame[9]=='E')
    {
            //Your answer is in here.
    }
    I can already pick where the number is calculated and the logic used to apply it to the 7-seg. It's been way to long since I've bit-banged so I'm not going to try to work it out, but I also feel that I would be doing your homework for you if I did. That said, I can see that this could do with some significant refactoring once you're done.


    [EDIT]

    After looking at this for a few more minutes, I could write the code to do this - it is elementary. Copy/Paste and change 2 lines of code each time and you're done. I assume this example will increase in complexity in future, but if you can't work out this first step - you need to do a lot more studying/practice.

    Are you sure you don't need brackets in your #defines?

    I wonder what any of this has to do with "water level sensing".
    In fact, the whole code reads like it's controlling some kind of simple radio, and is nothing at all to do with the problem.

    Mostly, it just looks like another dumb "here's my assignment, and here's some random code I found along the way".

    > Appendix C—Water Level Sensor Alarming
    So I'm guessing you just copy/pasted it from the "book", along with it's description of what it apparently "does already", without bothering to even read it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Salem, you really should be more formal until you know what people are posting. Hahahahaha, sorry I couldn't resist.

    Anyway, what book is this? Seems interesting.

    Nah, looks to me like it's just initialising a receiver then reading off whatever it gets sent:

    Code:
    void MRFI_RxCompleteISR()
    {
      mrfiPacket_t packet;
      MRFI_Receive(&packet);
      if(packet.frame[9]=='A')
      ...
    }

    This, this I agree with.

    If you wrote the code that is in your original post, then you shouldn't have any trouble making the two 7-segs display 20 for W and 10 for A.

    I have tried out but the 10 and 20 only shows when the water level reaches 30cm, but i want it to show for every level individually. Pls bivhitscar help me.

    Could you paste the code where you try to make 10 and 20 work?

    You have some very odd things going on here:
    Code:
        num_1=(20/10);
        r_1=20%10;
        num_2=r_1/1;
    Why don't you just do:
    Code:
    num_1 = 2;
    r_1 = num_2 = 0;
    I don't know why you have 10 case statements, because the only two values num will ever have are 0 and 2. Actually...
    Code:
        num_1=(30/10);
        r_1=30%10;
        num_2=r_1/1;
    ...
        num_1=(10/10);
        r_1=10%10;
        num_2=r_1/1;
    I should say will only ever be 0, 1, 2, or 3, depending on what your packet.frame[x] equals. In any case, you don't need 10 cases three times, you only need 2 cases three times.

    Code:
     
    num_1=(20/10);
    r_1=20%10;
    num_2=r_1/1;
    This part is assigning a maths expression to a variable. Those are just arithmetic operation of way to display in 7 segment.

    No it's not.

    edit - Or I am missing something in your translation here. 20/10 is always 2, and 20%10 is always 0, and 0/1 is also always 0.

    I agree with everything quzah is saying - though this is what I was referring to earlier. I was assuming that 20%10 would become 20%var. I was also assuming that you might think to create a function to manage your 7-seg that accepts an integer and sets the correct pins.

    That said, if the code above works for packet.frame[9]=='E', then I cant see why it wouldn't work for the other two. However, if your original description of 10 = Alarm, 20 = Warning is correct, you actually have them around the wrong way.

    Assuming the code works, then there might be something wrong with whatever you are using as a transmitter. Though that would be pretty hard for us to troubleshoot. You would need to confirm that a water level of 10 is actually setting packet.frame[9]=='A' and a level of 20 is setting packet.frame[9]=='W'
    it's ironic considerate rarity patron of love higher knowledge engulfs me...
