I'm trying to build a robotic teeter totter. I need an industrial
servo capable of lifting 500 -1000 lbs (for a good safety margin).
Then I need a feedback mechanism to determine angle (short of painting
Then I need a way to control it and program it. I've been working with
hobbiest toys (handy board, cricket, stamp, ect.), and I'm scared of
what the industrial league holds for me. It's like being called up to
the majors, I've no idea what I'm getting myself into.
Anyone out there got advice for a hobbiest, trying to "go pro" in
robotics? What resources are good?
