I'm planning to design a simple lifting system which is driven by an electric motor. I want to lift up to 100 kg. I also want to obtain an auto-control(feed back) using some sensors for the height of the lifted object. For example: when the temperature is around 20 C the height of the lift will be 50 cm and when the temperature is around 30 C it will be 70 cm.
Which kind of electric motors are used in these kind of applications? Do I need a micro controller such as Arduino to code the sensor feedback conditions?
