Hy to all,
I would like to connect 10 sensors to an arduino mega board; I think they will be PIR (motion) sensor or IR distance sensors (for example by Sharp).
First of all, according to your experience, is it possible to manage these 10 sensors with arduino mega?There are at least 10 analog input that I can use, right?
If it is possible, I can simply share the power +5V with all of these sensors and connect them to the same ground (for example via several connected breaboards)?.
The sensors will be placed in a room, and I would like to connect them, for the moment, by direct wires (perhaps using some breadboard for support). Because I had not refreshed my electronic knowledge recently, there could be some problem for the electronic signal?for example, I have a maximum distance for a single wire?
Finally, could you suggest me some weblinks to buy online the wires which I could need?there is some useful thing which I could need?for example wires with "pliers" could make easy the deployment?
PS after set up arduino mega and sensors I would like to manage them via Pure Data, using the firmata firmware and pduino.
Thank you very much
