Are you looking for a graphical programming language? ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_programming_language ).  Flowcode is one, but there are others.

I have never used any of them.  When something is complex, I may do a flowchart, then convert that to Assembly.  Over the years, one accumulates their own libraries to make the conversion easier.

- place a webcam to watch the water-meter under the sink
- at every minute take a snapshot of the water-meter
- use image recognition to identify the numbers captured in each photo
- turn the OCR digits into a number
- attach the timestamp to the reading and log that in a file

If you show this to an engineer he'll immediately tell you that you'd be better off installing your own computer-readable meter in series and use it for monitoring. This is because the engineer can think. The compiler cannot.

Not really, I consider graphical programming to be at the same level as text compilers (same for libraries, or dedicated software).  Preferably would be to exist something of a much higher abstraction level, so to get rid of managing all the details a programming language is requiring now.
