medical kit on intel atom having fc 11


I am building a portable medical kit on intel atom N240 series, I am adding sensors(spirometer oximeter) through GPIO,(using RS 232 , spi,usb is also an option). I have loaded the module needed to bring GPIO to userspace and I can now set each pin as input/output , the logical values at these pins. all this i am able to do from both kernel space and user space(writing to /sys/class/gpio folders).
Now i need to add these sensors to the board,where should I start of to understand the way these sensors work( their mode of tramission)how do I code to access these sensors.
Initially i would like to start of by adding an LCD or LED display, Where shall i start from. There quite a few tutorials on this topics for ARM but none for intel atom, if 1 exist can you please suggest me where it is

Thanks in advance.

The word sensor is somewhat of broad term and since you have not provided much detail on the your project it is difficult to find a place to start. It would be easiest to find an existing piece of equipment that outputs data via RS-232 or USB.

Here is one suggestion for a display.
