Look up "arduino" as the programmable microcontroller. Stop lights or LED controls are common projects. Good luck.

Thanks! I'm kind of new to the site and to these type of projects in general. I've seen arduino around the site so I will definitely do some digging!

Welcome to Instructables. What is great is that once you start poking around for something to help you build whatever you had in mind, you stumble on something else that gives you more ideas to build something different. We do appreciate those who can run with something if we push them in the right direction.
