I got a hexapod robot from ebay, but the seller is not providing me the program/drivers to connect to the servo board. It came with
With a group of students we are building an exoskeleton for paraplegics. I am part of the Software & Control department
I have the rpi3 running the HROS1-Framework with the rpi 2016-02-26 image from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ Use raspi-config to
I'm looking to replace the motors in a pan/tilt system with motors that have an encoder (preferably an absolute one, but incremental
I figured since this community seems to be growing at a good pace, we could start a thread to introduce ourselves. Feel free to
I have an amateur project of an automatic cat-feeding machine.
It does not require real-time performance of course
Yeah, that is the main trade-off ...
Regarding heat sinking, I think that a bonded pad on the bottom is qualitatively different from standard
That MOSFET you linked is one of those SOIC-8 derivatives I mentioned earlier (also called SOT-669, LFPAK, etc). Overlay a SOIC-8 (JEDEC 4mm width) and
RPI3 Support added with latest image, all dependencies included. https://sourceforge.net/projects/hro...aspberry%20Pi/
It's better to not generate the heat in the first place, rather than having to draw it out. Thus, I expect they're using whatever lowest-Rdson MOSFETs
EtherCAT proper tends to be quite expensive and sort of bulky since every device requires a pair of ethernet ports with magnetics as well as the large-ish
My understanding is that series elastic actuation is not a common use case in industrial motion control (yet?) and thus you can't buy off-the-shelf controllers
Hi, my name is Nathan.
Last year I finished my Bachelor Mechanical Engineering and this year I am working full time with a group of students
