I am very new to this field but do come from a PLC Ladder Programing / Relay Logic background.
I have written a PLC Ladder Program for a project which I have not built because it required a lot of sensors (some of which are not practical to mount) for a relatively simple task.
I had a hunch that with the right hardware this project could be greatly simplified.
My hunch was half right when I discovered Ping))) Laser sensors in that the hardware aspect is much simpler but Stamp Basic and Blockly are a bit daunting at this stage.
This project involves 4x LaserPing sensors, Microcontroller and 4x Relays for interfacing to another control.
My question is two-fold...
1) Is someone interested in doing this project for me terms negotiable?
Bearing in mind it has commercial potential especially if a corded or wireless remote is added replacing the dumb controller that is being sold today.
2) Failing the above what is the best Microcontroller and what do I need to get this project off the ground.
Note: I am a Mac OS Yosemite user.
I am having an attempt to learn BrocklyProp so please take a look at my Test by GMACD53 and comment...
Any advice greatly appreciated!
