Techniques for Measuring Robotic Movement
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
Abstract:Everyone has seen robots like Canadarm move, but how do robots know when and where to stop? This project investigates how computer hardware and software can be used to measure, and control, robotic movement. It uses the Lego Mindstorms NXT Robotics Development kit to conduct rotational measurement tests on the following home-made rotational sensors: 1. Optical encoder 2. Magnetic Pulse Counter 3. Precision Potentiometer
