Is it possible to control a linear actuator or servo with force sensitive resistors?
March 19, 2010
Hey, everyone, brand new to LMR and as of yet still unsure as to whether i'm in the right place or not.
BASICALLY, my overall goal is to build a powered exoskeleton. I'm not joking, I'm absolutely serious. I want to build a powered exo. The first hurdle I'm coming across is how I would control the thing, and what I've got in my head is a system using a pair of force-sensitive resistors to control a variable-speed smart linear actuator or servo.
Before I get much deeper into this, first off, I want to know if this is possible, second, what other hardware would I need.
I'm new to robotics, but not new to electronics and programming. Should I press on with this, or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?
