Help; Choice of microcontroller for a project

Thread Starter


Joined May 24, 2011

I want to develop a small "pointing robot" with a micro-controller.

I'm a bit of a starter, but i learn fast, but in order to start, i'd like to have advice on which microcontroller i should start learning for my project.

for the inputs, i need to use 6 press-buttons (like a mini joypad), and for the output, 2 bipolar steppers, 2 relay, and one LCD (graphical would be nice, but a 4 lines alphanumerical could do instead).

I played around the PIC controller, so i might go with those, but still wonder what language (basic, C, pascal) would be easiest to work with.

anyone have suggestion ? :)

Thanks for your time.
