I have a lot of experience with microprocessor and microcontroller systems and programming, but I have not yet had the opportunity to work with the Arduino. What I want to do is to use the Arduino board, with NO computer attached, as a smart controller for a pair of sump pumps.
Basically, my question is: If I program the basic “Blinky” program into an Arduino board, and then disconnect the board from power and from the computer … carry the board to a different place and hook up power but no computer, will it automatically run the Blinky program as the default, or is there some special programming function (vector?) that must be used to cause the Blinky (or any other canned application) to run as the power up default.
Thank you for any and all comments, suggestions, and assistance with this question.
Blessings in abundance, all the best, & ENJOY!
