Hi to all,

I am thinking of building I adjustments seat.
I what the seat to have a number of memories and by chasing a memory the seat will go to its position.
So I was thinking of  using a  touch screen.
With the touch screen.
I have a number of option what do you think is the best way?
1. Use R-pi and a python to program it.
2. Use 4d system for the screen shilled and program.
3.    Use Arduino and a touch screen.
I do not know how to right in Pyton the only language I knew is c
So I need to find a platform that it is easy to learn and with a nice HMI/GUI
So, what is the best+easy way to go?
Or if you have any other ida?



I can only write about Arduino and touch screens.

Recently i added touch screen support for M2tklib. I also created a small tutorial, which discusses some design principles: https://code.google.com/p/m2tklib/wiki/t10.
Currently M2tklib only supports monochrome character (LiquidCrystal Lib) and graphics displays (GLCDv3 and U8glib).

If you decide for a monochrome graphics display, a list of controller types, which are supported by U8glib is listed here:  https://code.google.com/p/u8glib/wiki/device

A good display vendor usually offers both, the display and the corresponding touch panel, see for example here http://www.newhavendisplay.com/accessories-touch-panels-c-91_120.html or the displays here http://www.lcd-module.com/products/dog.html.

Note: On ebay most (all?) monochrome displays are offered without touch panel.
