Arduino Touch Screen Music Player and Alarm Clock Project
In this project I will show you how you can make an Arduino Touch Screen MP3 Music Player and Alarm Clock. You can watch the following video or read the written tutorial below.
If we enter the Music Player we can start playing the music by pressing the big “Play” button in the middle of the screen. Right beside it, there are two more buttons, for playing the previous or the next song.
Above these buttons there is the song progress bar, and at the bottom of the screen we have a volume bar and two buttons for decreasing and increasing the volume. In the upper right corner there is a clock and on the left side is the “Menu” button which brings us back to the home screen.
On the other hand, if we enter the Alarm Clock we can set an alarm by using the two buttons for setting the hours and the minutes.
When the alarm will be activated, a song will start playing at a higher volume, and it will keep playing until we press the “Dismiss” button.
How It Works
Now let’s take a look how this device works. It uses an Arduino Mega board and a 3.2” TFT touch screen with a suitable shield for connecting the screen with the Arduino Board. For playing the music, it uses the BY8001 MP3 Player module and for the alarm clock it uses the DS3231 Real Time Clock module.
