Never mind. You don't do house wiring do you?morphy_richards wrote:
They look like really capable motors... How 'powerful' are they? One day I want to make a kind of Johnny5 human sized robot using a Kinect that could have some serious uses for people with profound multiple learning difficulties... I was thinking electronic wheelchair or mobility scooter motors would be the way to go. Are these in any way equivalent?Ravenous wrote:
Also this is effectively giving me just an on/off signal for pulses, though of course they're probably different sensors. (Google "devantech emg30" for the motors I used.)

This was where we came in - I do like this approach but I have no arduino, I'd hope there'd be a solution using only the raspi and its gpio capabilitiesRavenous wrote:You know something, I still these alternate solutions to encoders are a bit dodgy. I'm sure you could have installed encoders by now...
On this page, which is an article we looked at before...

...the guy claims he got 1024 pulses in 180 degrees turn of the shaft. You need an arduino or something to count the pulses, but that has to be simpler than all these hall sensors/optos on gray tracks/nuclear reactors/flux capacitor things you've been trying over the last few weeks! Is it really that hard to get an encoder inside the waist joint?
