Re: Servo Systems(drives, encoders, etc)

One other thing... I've read up on different microcontrollers and such but I think, for this kind of project, something more advanced is necessary.

Re: Servo Systems(drives, encoders, etc)

Well here, I suppose I was a little ambiguous so let me elaborate. I have many ideas involving bipedal motion and constructing and manipulating inverted legs. Well for certain joints I would like to use a motor of some sort but I'm not sure whether a stepper is ideal for this or some sort of powerfu...

Re: Servo Systems(drives, encoders, etc)

I know what a stepper and servo motor is and the differences. What I am asking is how to integrate them into projects b/c I see motor drives out there and other devices but I don't understand how to integrate them into robotics. Keep in mind I am speaking also about devices suplemental to the motors...

Re: motherboard questions

A great site is driverguide.com but you have to register with them. It free and definitly worth it. A very extensive database.<p>Good Luck!

Servo Systems(drives, encoders, etc)

I have very many ideas on forms of locomotion in robotics but for the life of me I can't figure out what to use for "motion drives" so to speak. Many people speak of the use of servo and stepper motors. My questions are: (I need these motors to be fairly powerful or at least not hobby servos)<p>1: W...
