What sensors make sense on a simple gripper arm?
April 3, 2014
I just purchased a dagu MkII gripper, and am making a 5dof arm for it. I do not have any experience whatsoever with operating a robotic arm/gripper. What sensors make sense on this? I know servo feedback for grip force, but does a gyro or accellerometer make sense? I can visually see the full range of motion with the Raspberry Pi cam, but would feel better if there was some way to gaurantee "level"....
I've searched this site, and cant find much other than pressure sensors or cameras on the grpper.
All I need is just one more toy...
