What microcontroller to get started?
« on: January 14, 2009, 01:24:11 PM »
I want to make a small robot that is controlled from a computer.  So the brains would be on the computer and would interface with a microcontroller that would control it.  I plan to use a XBee-Pro to provide wireless.  My question is, what microcontroller should I use?  I need it to be able to read sensor information and output to speed controllers or servos.  I am learning to program in C and I would like to do the programming.
