Please forgive me if this place is not the right place to post this question. Kindly point me to the right place. Thanks.
At the moment i want to build a machine that counts money (money counter machine). When the user puts in the money bills (and if possible coins as well), it will scan them and count them and send the results to a program running on a PC.
I really don't know the kind of hardware i need to build this machine. I have been googling for a while but can't seem to find any place that will give me a good answer.
I will also create a software that will receive the counting from the machine. Creating the software is not a problem. What i need now is how to build this machine and where to get the hardwares. Infact i would like to know if the NXT brick will also help me in this project.
My main concern now is which hardware do i need to create this machine and probably where to get them.
Please all your suggestions are welcome and if you know any site that will help me, kindly point me to the site.
Thanks a lot guys.
