I am learning the Arduino as I develop a beer brewing system. The system will have 2 components, the Arduino which will control the machine and the operator interface. I need to start looking at the operator interface part of the project. My question is what should I be looking at to accomplish this?
I’ve done a lot of searching but the problem is that I’m such a newbie that I’m not even certain what to search for or what I’m looking at when I search.
I’m a PLC programmer by trade and I mostly do machine programming. With PLC’s we often use an HMI which refers to a touch screen that the operator uses to interact with the system. I’ve attached some screen shots of an HMI program. This is what I want to develop to control the system. I want to run the interface on a PC
Is there a programming language that’s more suited to this? I’m seeing Python a lot.
Is there a program I can download that has been designed for this? I found processing and Instrumentino. Processing seems more for graphical art and I don’t think I can design screens like the attached ones in Instrumentino.
What would you guys use for this?
Thanks for your time.
