I am new to micro controllers, i don't want to be rude asking questions so simple to answer for you, or the ones that actually are simple but the time actually is not on my side and i can't take all the information i find to cooperate with me.
I am thinking of a simple project.
The aim is to control multiple stepper motors, small water pumps, vacuum pump only one and several web cams and a lot of temperature and humidity sensors.
The movements of stepper are very simple, just to move a box to a certain point along X axis. Water pump need to be turned just for few times a day and it could be manually firstly, until i get a grip on the programming. Web cam is for watching how everything works. And the sensors....well, for feedback on temps and humidity.
The aim of my post here is that i read read read about micro controllers and i can't decide, does arduino is capable of these functions, or is it too expensive for a project like this? (i already know it's based on Atmel)
I have started to learn about it's programming, and that idea came to me. On the other hand, I'm a beginner on micro controllers, and i doubt i could handle something that isn't even on a board and prototype the board myself.
And apologies if i wrote into a wrong topic, but it kinda touches Internet, motors and sensors, so.. :)
Thank you in advance.
