I’d choose the microcontroller that best suited the project (in my
opinion). That is normally arrived at by setting some design criterion and
then working things out.
The criterion usually is made up of the following:
Time - How much time will this take if I use a microcontroller I’m familiar
with over one I’d have to learn…
Cost - What is the overall budget and can I justify spending more money on
a known microcontroller over something cheaper
Functionality - Does the microcontroller have the functionality required or
will I need to add extra circuitry to achieve the required result.
Ease of use and assistance - How hard is it to develop with the
microcontroller and is there a large community associated with it that can
provide assistance when needed.
To be frank, there is no single correct microcontroller for every project
and like there is no single tool that’s perfect for every job. Pic and
arduino microcontrollers have their strengths and weaknesses just like
everything else. Choosing which micro to use comes down to the skill of the
engineer when assessing the requirements of the project.

If you were doing a project that required a microcontroller would you
consider using a PIC or Arduino/AVR? Perhaps something else? If you
wouldn’t use a PIC normally then what situation would make you use a PIC?
