Ok so i need to make a small robot
that has a little arm that goes down for a specified amount of time
waits another specified amount of time
goes back down for a specified amount of time
go up and end
how would I go about this?
Start by rereading your post.
Now if you are an MD (as your nick could point to), perhaps you could inject me with a small daily amount of cortisone for a specified number of days and as well tell me if that would be recommendable? And safe?
I'm not trying to knock you down, I'm trying to teach you something and I'm sure you know what by now and that your next post will indeed specify what it claims, together with all the other relevant data:
How "little" should the arm be?
How much force is needed in the downwards movement?
How long must it travel?
How fast does it need to travel that far?
For how long should it be kept down?
How fast should it get back up?
How long must it pause before the second go?
Does the second action need the same parameters?
Should any of the above parameters be adjustable beyond initial tuning?
Anything else that you may think relevant?
What is it for?
What are your skill level in electronics? (Able to follow a schematic/Able to program a microcontroller/What is electronics?).
Please answer all of it, or it will be impossible to help you - we're darned good, but that's not how you spell oracles
