Now that the MusiCubes tray is assembled and the RFID-sensor and LEDs are working as expected, It’s time to add the last feature of the original concept: invisible capacitive touch sensors to control the volume of the music.
To improve my robot arm’s accuracy, I wanted to add an absolute position feedback mechanism. Aside from it’s accuracy, it would also prevent the need for end stops. But most importantly, it would give me a reason to play with a AS5600 12-bit on-axis magnetic rotary position sensor.
So, last week I worked on connecting my automatic curtain system motor unit to the control panel. Unfortunately, this wasn’t as easy as I had hoped. So after banging my head into the wall for a week, it is time do take a step back.
After I finally finished the first test motor unit I ordered all the necessary parts on eBay to built the 4 final units. Since most of the parts will take a while to arrive, I decided to work on the control unit testcase. Since eBay isn’t world’s fasted way to acquire parts, I have a lot of time to work on this … So let’s get going!
