Flash Memory of Arduino Uno

 

Sketch uses 13,308 bytes (41%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32,256 bytes.

Global variables use 2,082 bytes (101%) of dynamic memory, leaving -34 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2,048 bytes.

processing.app.debug.RunnerException: Not enough memory; see http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#size for tips on reducing your footprint.
