Ada and Arduino

Rick Duley-2
I currently have a school project involving autonomous machines controlled by Arduino hardware.  The Arduino system reminds me of Ada Mindstorms - a standalone computer system with its program downloaded from a PC.  Arduino programming language is based on C++ but I noted somewhere that programming can be done in 'other languages'.  I was wondering if there is an Ada Arduino movement.

Don't know about a "movement" per se, but this is how I program my
Arduino.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/avr-ada/

Projects exist likewise for ARM-Cortex and MSP430 compilers.

(this is a bit off-topic for GTKAda however)
