I am working on a project that will require me to program a cnc like system that can adjust its code based on readings that it receives from sensors as it is running its program.

Could anyone give me some pointers on where to start looking for this kind of software?
I'm finding my weakness to be the terminology to ask for the exact thing I am trying to do.

You need to be more specific. What system are you planning to program? There are several systems that run programs made up of G (or M) codes. One that comes to mind is Fanuc, and I'm sure there are quite a few others.

If you know the system you will be programming, you'll be closer to finding the software that is able to generate the G codes.

We are designing a 3 axis mill like machine that will operate on a table top running Linuxcnc.
We need the feed rate and tool speed and z force to be dynamically responsive to the force/temperature changes encountered as the tool moves through the material. Traditional cnc code appears to simply follow the instructions given and relies on the user to select parameters appropriate for the material. Unfortunately we will require something a little more sophisticated.

We are still trying to make a pairing between the correct system and software combination that would best allow us to do this. We could in theory do this with LabView, but would rather use something more common to industry applications.
