Selecting microcontroller - What to look out for?
March 31, 2009
I'm working on a semi-autonomous robot, controlled via RF. I started off using the BS2, which I pick up from school.
however, i requrie something that can incorporate C or Flash as a control interface. So far, I'm only aware of PICAXE & Arduino, but I dun really understand what's the difference.
My component list are as follows for now:
1) IR sensors
2) ultrasonic sensor
3) DC motors w H-bridge
4) RF transceiver
what MCU are suitable for this application & what specs do I have to look out for?
