we will all laugh at you

I think Arduino can save him from that if he uses it judiciously or utilises a similar board like OLIMEXINO-STM32 or Maple based on the same Arduino framework and support his project with hardcore processors while retaining the feel and programming environment of Arduino.

If that is the case then using the 'code' button probably would have avoided the problem.

Yes you are correct.

you have listed the code but what hardships are you facing ? or simply want somebody to check the code?

Water would not have been a problem, as you have probably guess the job was around lots of it.

Mr. Rob, I would hold the opposition smiley-roll-blue at that, the water available at those type of resources is so much polluted that it can easily ROT your kidney's + there are some species of frog who's venom is like comparable to king cobra smiley-eek-blue, surely Boiling works but then knowing that all that DUNG and other animal waste is in that resource makes you die thirsty. smiley smiley-grin

EDIT: What about predator's? aren't they nearby, Do you have Grizzly Bear's smiley-twist there? if all of this or similar stuff is there smiley-sweat then i would not like to be featured on Discovery Channel smiley-eek with my left over Documentary  smiley-grin

Able to live and work unsupported for periods of up to two weeks in the wilderness.

Mannn............NO in anycase my Muscles would deplete  smiley-eek

These guys are expecting a very high level of all round ability which is very hard to find They want a hardcore chip programmer who is also a hardcore internet programmer but the fact is both the technologies (embedded programming & web development) require mastering different abilities and the trend in IT firms is like they want a guy who is fluent in one thing like if one started with .net he is expected to have 4-5 years of experience in the same and would be hired to work on the same , atleast in the Indian market things go this way.

Even in web Development firms the guys who are into designing a website front part(The design and looks) are different from the ones who programme the back-end, so simply in this way only they have to get a fluent embedded developer and another web tech. developer to work on  for the technologies like TCP/UDP Protocols, HTTP, DHCP, DNS, 802.15.4, and 6LoWPAN Protocols.

I think that I can use it to replace a control module from a machine. I'm talking about producing this machines with the control made with this board.

You want to do PLC stuff here? yes could be done with the Arduino ,already there are some hobby CNC's moving with it.

"its an Investment" that you are going to bless your self in future for doing so,so get anyone, It's not necessary that you start with a uno/or deumilanove (deu is obsolete, but i love them) you can also start up with a mega , the learning goes in the same way no special ways you have to work.

Advantages of a Smaller UNO/duemilanove like board:

1) its small not many pin's but enough for a beginner.
2) cost is too less so if you fry it its fine not that much cost to incur to have a new chip.

Advantages of a Mega as starter:

1) The biggest one available.more than 50 GPIO's.
2) cost is high but then you get a whole lot of power like EEPROM etc

The disadvantage of Mega is that it has a SMD uC on it so once you fry it most probably you have to get a new Mega.

The small boards have no dis advantage leaving their limitations.

Best of Arduino!  smiley smiley-cool smiley-mr-green

1149  Using Arduino / Sensors / Re: Arduido Uno and Distance Sensors on: March 17, 2012, 12:23:21 am
I wasn't sure if it was 14 since the Arduino uno has 14 digital outputs.

ya plus the analog pins configured as outputs.

I am wondering what the min and max measuring range of the sensor is and how long it takes for it to be able to provide an accurate reading.

some centimetres, check out the datasheet, i tried to check the datasheet but my connection is slow so wasn't able to load it.

Will I be able to power the device and all distance sensors via USB connected to my PC?

USB port on your laptop or pc regardless of which OS you are using provides 5v @ 500 mA and the many sensors you propose to use bill put a power surge issue on your computers USB port, just connect the grounds of arduino + sensor + external battery source and power them from external power.
1150  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: How to make a digital multimeter? on: March 16, 2012, 11:35:17 pm
Hi Sir, i think you have to start with a rotary switch like the fan regulators have, as the structure and functionality of a multimeter generally works with varying resistances at a particular point when a the regulator is moved, I attached the picture of example like the ones i manufacture the concept is the same i think you just need to tweak the place where the 250vac cap's are placed.

In a nutshell this has to be the starting point and then you have to think about the LCD also i read the post yesterday by "liudr" he mentioned many lcd usage trials out of those multimeter lcd working with arduino he mentioned as "very hard" so better use a HD44870 driver lcd only or if you can work that alphanumeric lcd.

How to make a digital multimeter more useful

I think this is a very innovative point to develop here as once things are being measured by Arduino the computer is already having a gateway of information then it can just input the information from the arduino within it self for all sorts of developments like integration with simulation programmes and xocillo oscillation software, so a lot of possibilities exist if development on this is taken up many of the people will forgo using the traditional multimeter's. smiley-wink

Most students break things, don't know why and don't care.

That happens but when people are there for learning then they know they have to ask someone with experience but its a fact also that numerous places are there where a beginner can be lost and burns their system and not always those numerous places can be pointed by a expert.

Hi Sir Robert i think he's talking about Alphanumeric LCD's which also works like below as he showed in his very first post :

1154  Using Arduino / LEDs and Multiplexing / Re: LEDs for a robot costume on: March 16, 2012, 11:57:57 am
I would also suggest that you implement BLINK M led's  , these are LED's with virtually every existent color on earth in them and Plus the animations they provide are just outrageously staggering, i love these however a bit costly but you will love them(They have uC in them!  smiley-twist)
Have a look on them by searching simply BLINK M on google they are provided by the company THINK-M
1155  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Which arduino to use? Need help! on: March 16, 2012, 08:32:06 am
I need to programme 4 vibration motors, with a programming chip.

to run in a counter sequence like a 24 hour clock.

Each motor representing a Hr Hr Mins Mins..

I was wondering which arduino kit would be suitable.

Arduino Uno?

you mean you need to control 4 vib.. motors with a programming chip.
go for UNO will be more than enough you just need four pin's.
