Hello guys
I just ordered my arduino uno r3 and wiznet 5100 shield. as I am new to arduino I am totally confused how should I accomplish my goals.

My goal
1. Filling water in tank with help of motor pump and ultra sonic sensor which is place in water tank to measure the level of water and used to disabled motor when water tank is filled

2. Installing a temperature sensor which will log it to my server

3.logging of level of tank to my server

4. To know flow of water in pipes

Thanks in advance

Take the time to learn how to write Arduino sketches, then work with one sensor at a time so you understand their operation. From that point you will be well placed to work with your ideas.

A good starting point is a book we have for sale "Arduino Workshop" which covers everything for the absolute beginner from initial installation right through to more complex tasks:

along with the Arduino forum and also Instructables for some examples.
