I am a student in an engineering school and I am currently working on a 3D printable 8-legged robot (a "spider"), controlled by a raspberry pi 3B+.
I would like to integrate on this robot :
- 24 digital servos (3 per leg)
- A camera
- 8 FSR (Force Sensing Resistor)
- An inertial sensor unit (Accel + Gyro + Mag)
- A Xbox 360 controler
After this, I would like this robot to be upgraded (Lidar, Machine Learning...)
All those components will work with ROS (Robot Operating System).
But I have to choose a servo controler for my Raspberry Pi as it can't control 24 servos at the same time.
I have chosen this controler for my servos : https://www.gotronic.fr/art-controleur- ... -21723.htm but the datasheet tells :
"On ARM-based Linux machines such as the Raspberry Pi, the Maestro’s graphical configuration program (the Maestro Control Center) does not work. This is caused by problems with Mono’s implementations of WinForms on those systems."
My english isn't very good, and it's the first time I am using a Raspberry so I would like to ask you if I can write a script on it even if I am using a Raspberry pi ?
If you are interested by my project, I can show you my progress of course
Thanks in advance,
