I am very new to the arduino world but very interested in its possibilities. Im a sculpture student and I'm currently attempting to use arduino brains in my work. My newest project is simple but i need help on where to start. I plan on triggering a 12 volt motor with a motion sensor. The motor powers a kinetic sculpture that craws on the ground. The sensor will be mounted to the sculpture so i need to program the arduino to turn off the motor after 30 sec and stay still for 5 sec so the motion sensor won't continue to trigger.
The basic effect i am going for is a 12 volt powered sculpture that crawls after the viewer when they pass in front of it. It will then turn off after 30 sec and remain still while it waits for another person to trigger it.
Thank you for any help or advice.... :)
