    Build a robot gripper with force feedback

    Difficulty
    Moderate
    Estimated Time
    2-5 hours
    Skills Required
    Computer Programming
    Parts Required
    Phidget single servo controller
    Phidget 8/8/8
    Phidget Voltage Divider
    FSR
    Computer
    Robot Gripper
    Using a Phidget single servo controller to operate a gripper with an FSR we can create a system with force feedback.

    alex nice video,i getting ready to design a fsr gripper on 5 finger hand,would like to buy the phidgets boards and maybe the gripper you have or one of the 2 i have that not using for my hand to play with and learn how to code it,where can i get your demo code,i also think i only bought 10 fsr,s ,so might need to buy another one,since these are very good

    Thanks Alex for sharing this with us, interesting.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    Sorry for being such a flake guys. I've been busy as all hell lately and didn't want to just upload the sloppy code I had for this app, so I needed to clean it up a bit. Anyways, here ya go:

    It's not the best code in the world, but it gives everyone a decent understanding on how I went about doing it.

    NOTE: There are much better ways of solving this problem and I wrote this code well over a year ago, so please be gentle with your comments

    thanks ALEX ,your design will be a big start for my project,i will be using a different controller and a-d converter,but something good to play with,since i have phidgets 4 servo controller and many fsr's only need to buy a phidgets 8/8/8 board

    I know it isn't much, but I hope it'll help get you started at the very least
