    Before I ask the question I realize that selection of a programming language depends on the context of a problem at hand.

    Related to this I would like to know (if anyone) how many of you use which language for programming microcontrollers, embedded systems and even generally on PC.

    Here is an example:

    • Webcam interface for face recognition. (USB or inbuilt)
    • Visualizing the data in real-time plus GUI.
    Example languages which could be used for the above:

    • C
    • C++
    • Python
    • Java
    • C#
    What do you recommend and why?

    (I am asking this question because a lab I worked in were using Java to control a robot on wheels for object detection/avoidance etc. This seemed a bit wrong considering that for time critical apps. C or C++ seem to be good choices).
