Hi Renato and Everyone,
I am from rural Vermont, USA and this is 'Home', but My wife Mary Alice and I have been working/living overseas last 7 years in Africa, China, Middle East and next year: Genoa, Italy. Couple more years and we will stay home in Vermont. She builds Libraries. I work online from anywhere.
Renato, I feel strongly that your ideas and software are key to doing more interesting and complex things with Arduino. I would like to help with that and support your work in any way I can.
Interesting and important applications need the kind of organized "multi-tasking" and Event-Driven actions you are talking about:
- Home/Building Automation/Energy Management
- Application-specific Automation, from Machines to Fish Farming, etc., etc.
- Robotics, especially Autonomous Vehicles.
All of these need to handle and coordinate a variety of Sensors, Timers and Counters, Communications, and a variety of actuators.
Many Arduino projects get difficult and bogged down trying to make multiple things work together. An organized way of building this kind of Arduino application is needed. I hope to write some examples soon...
Arduino, especially the 2560 variants, is perfectly capable of doing these applications. I built significant automated machinery 20 years ago with big rack-mounted IBM Series/1 etc. But guess what? They had no more processor power or memory and less I/O capability than Arduino!
Let's figure out how to effectively collaborate and get this working.
Regards, Terry King
