I am doing a Neural Network project as my final year undergraduate project. The idea of the project : A very simple robot with 2 motors, and two ir and bump sensors will traverse a environment with the use of a Neural Network which is in a computer. The main requirement is to observe possibly with a suitable GUI the learning process and the evolution process of the Neural Network. (The main objective is to observe the neural Network, and its changes not to drive the robot). The robot will communicate with the computer using Serial communication in the earlier stages of the project and then will using WLAN..
My question is which is the best language that can be used to implement the components in the Computer (Neural Network). The things that has to be considered are : Ease of implementation of neural network, Performance (Although the robot task seems simple, observing the neural network's evolution might involve bit of maths also changing the GUI), Ease of interfacing to the hardware (Serial and WLAN)
I have so far considered JAVA and C#.. I request your opinion too... Please give your feedback on the project and on the aspects of my considerations when choosing a language.(In other words.. what more should I look in to before taking a decision)
