    Hello everyone,

    I am a high school student very enthusiastic electronics projects and also racing simulators. So as a project I decided to do my own racing motion simulator. I have decided to build a 3 degree-of-freedom motion simulator with actuators. However, I have very little knowledge about drivers of ac/dc/stepper/servo motors. Also, I don't know a lot about microcontrollers but want to learn a great amount.

    In addition to that project, my father is asking me to help him build a beer homebrewing device, so I am trying to learn how to use microcontrollers with components such as thermistors to measure temperature. The problem is that, I feel I don't know a great deal about the basics of the inner workings of these components and devices such as microcontrollers.

    Can you guys give me recommendations of books/videos and other mediums, so that I can learn about the basics as well as driving different kind of motors, using microcontrollers to measure temperature and do other stuff?

    I really appreciate any help. Thank you!
