We are working on a real-time four-sensor application (two fast digital and two
slow temperature). Digital events will occur at a maximum of 60 times per
second. Eventually, the platform will control single-cylindar engine spark and
fuel injection using the sensor input.
I am an experienced C programmer (no microcontroller programming experience) ,
and as such I feel can go either way with the programming environment: BASIC or
The BASIC coding seems very straight forward. Part of this project is for a
technical high school, so teaching and student-programming would be great.
The young people collaborating might have an easier time with BASIC, but a well
written C program can be very readable also (pointers to pointers aside). In
addition, there is a robotics club at the school that likely uses C.
1. Does the sampling and control requirements indicate a C vs BASIC solution?
2. Does anyone have experience with high-school level students and C?
Thanks for your input.
