I want to creat a program that controls components of a machine, as well as is autonomous . For ex: To monitor pH, the program will record pH over time and if he pH goes below 7.4 than the program will cause X part of the machine to open. A program that can record data from multiple sites (pH sensor, Oxygen sensor...), and act on its own based on the data coming in over time. I would also like to be able to make 2D and 3D graphs out of the data collection. This project is connecting programming with hardware stuff.
Thanks, sorry about the poor description, but its the best. As you may tell, this is the first time I try this.
What specific programming language for Arduino is best? Where can I get these sensors? Any books to help me learn?
