    Hi guys, was wondering if you could help me out. I'm trying to design a system based of the regenerative braking concept using a proxomity sensor with the aid of a microcontroller. The basic idea is that the proximity sensor will detect an object and automatically kick start the motor and stop the wheel. I'm thinking of using a microcontroller, possibly a PIC18 to hel[p in the automation. Was wondering if any of you have ideas on how my circuit could look like. Are there any other PIC's or microcontrollers other than PIC18?

    Hope that you guys could help me out here. I'm pretty stuck at this point.
