I new here. I from course Computer Engineering Technology. I hope someone can guide me through my Final Year Project based on my course.

I currently got a project for my final year college project. The objective of the project is to control light using touchscreen. I don't decide yet what kind of touch interface I use, build a touch interface or using android. The project also need to have motion sensor, light control system and using timer to set time to control light. Firstly, we decide to control light using touch screen and we have the idea, but after my lecture want us to add the motion sensor, light control and timer.

I hope someone can give us some idea, because myself and my group don't have any idea.

Final year of college?
or Final year of Middle School?

Are you really serious you have no idea even where to start?

Like start with the block diagram, and figure out how to do each little piece/module, and then the software glue to hold them all together.  You're getting bogged down by this touchscreen.... if you can control your light using a little pot, you can later replace that pot with a push button control, or a touchscreen.

Excellent choice of project, then.

Time to talk with your tutor, then. He's there to help you succeed. Hopefully he will either help you understand how to tackle the project, or agree with you that it's not a suitable project for you. It sounds like the sort of project that you should be able to tackle as a final year Computer Engineering student, but if not then the sooner you work that out and move onto a more suitable project the better.
I only provide help via the forum - please do not contact me for private consultancy.

Sorry for late reply, thanks for your reply and comment, yeah, I think the project is not suitable for us because we not from the electronic course.

Anyways, I have decide to continue with it, and have done some research for what hardware I need for the project.

I have found these;
-Touch Shield for Arduino http://www.adafruit.com/products/376
-Arduino Uno http://www.adafruit.com/products/50
-PIR Motion Sensor http://www.adafruit.com/products/189

My concern is, does this two hardware can be combine with the PIR Motion sensor because from what I see, that the Arduino Uno output pin are just enough for the Touch Shield connection.

If you plan on getting that touch screen, then DONT get an Uno, get a Mega. Better yet, get a Mega and a touch screen made for a Mega, that way you can use your PWM and analog pins.
