I'm a complete newbie in the field of microcontrollers but I want to start a small personnal project for the challenge and the pleasure of learning new things.
I'd like to buid a automated machine aimed at mixing 2 liquids together. A simple cocktail machine if you will. I'll put my hand on pumps, solenoid valve and so on . My main concern is what should I choose as electronic controller that fits my needs in the cheapest way, and that would be ok to program for a begginner like me.
I would like to have an analog input for total volume and another for the proportion between liquid 1 and liquid 2. Plus a start button. And then control 2 valves and 2 pumps and another motor for a mixer.
If you have any advice on which genuino card would be best or any other microcontroller that would do the trick it would be really appreciated.
Thanks a lot for your help,
