Hello, I am working on a school project, and I kind of went into a wall with some Arduino coding.
Overview and understanding of my project: I want to build an dispenser with servo controlling, and a rotating block (rotated by a motor and posistion determinated by a Rotary Encoder). But this is all good, and i fully understand how to set this up, both build and code with the Arduino Uno. But a key function of this project would be to determine how many of each object should be dropped down from the dispenser. (We are building a dispenser holding and dropping light weighted metal balls).
My problem and question is: Is it possible to somehow code something within the Arduino (without comming into coding an interface), to determine how to tell the arduino how many of each material there should be dropped down. Let's say i want to drop 4 balls of the first dispenser that comes in the rotation path, and after that i want 5 of the next material. Would I be able to somehow tell the Arduino (maybe through the serial monitor?) this without having to recode and upload a new program each time?
Thank you in advance! And sorry for the bad English.
