If you like programming, electronics, making controls; in general automation, then take a look at the "Arduino Finite State Machine". The site describes part of terms and techniques used in the automation of (industrial) controls based on Arduino/Visual Studio and can also be used for understanding some basic PLC and HMI techniques. 
The AFSM is a software environment for the development of embedded systems. Applications are made by VisualMicro (sketches), Python3 and Visual Basic (all freeware). Controls are made based on the principles of a finite state machine. This site descibes some theory and offers the software for making controls based on the MEGA 2560 and MEGA DUE boards. Both application and development software are freeware. 

 

  • No additional programming needed, to control and debug! 

 

Highlights of the Arduino Finite State Machine


I made it as a hobby for rainy days. Some knowledge of programming C++ for Arduino, Visual Basic/Visual Studio and unix/python3 is needed. Enjoy this site and feel free to contact me.

Years ago a colleague of me told me about Arduino. He made an application for Ambilight based on Arduino. For the making of little controls for the annual village festivals, I was looking for some sort of simple PLC for building it and an Arduino board seems a good alternative. So I bought a MEGA 2560 and made my first sketch in 2012; It was an application for a game that counted the most possible turns a person can make around a rod during 30 seconds. The results were presented via a laptop; rounds, high scores, time to go... Making rounds -around a rod- can do funny things for a men’s brain... Making the sketch was also fun to do, everything worked fine and most imported it was stable. Arduino seems to be a platform ideal for hobby. First years of my working period, about 15 years, I had a job in IT and after that I became project manager at a system integrator. I kept my interest for programming and specially controls. So, during rainy days, I started building software for a finite state machine on the Arduino platform and made this site as a hobby. The site describes part of terms and techniques used in the automation of (industrial) controls and can be used for hobby (specially Arduino/Visual Studio) but also for understanding some basic PLC and HMI techniques. Enjoy this site and feel free to contact me.
