Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
- Pick a microcontroller
- Google embedded systems and the microcontroller of choice. (There are many that have special book designated for that, but also many that don't)
- Look into an evaluation board that'll make your life easier and less time consuming to start the project
Maybe Try sparkfun
There are many good microcontrollers to start with
PIC (microchip) PIC Embedded system book
Arduino Arduino Embedded system book
MBed (highly recommend it for easy start, easy drag in file programming, and online compiler prepared for you) Mbed cookbook
- Propller Propller Embedded system book
and much else
