Title: Mission Unmanned
Post by: hansi on March 05, 2011, 03:48:40 AM
Hi guys!!!!!!!!!!

i m working on unmanned vehcile project.
i m able to run the vehcile through pc commands bt due to manipulations in actuators the controller gets into infine loop and i have to reset the whole system.
i have four actuators, one for steering,brake,clutch,accelerator.
can any body help me in monitoring these actuators and i can build a seperate fail safe unit for this and wheneever i recongnise the failure i can inform this to mcu. and stop the vehcile.
My objective is to  monitor actuator through software.

So, to clarify:

1) You want to control a robot with PC-based commands

2) When you move actuators the robot locks you out and goes into an infinite loop

3) ???

It seems to me that you need to fix your programming (for the controller) not monitor the actuators... You shouldn't be using blocking methods to control actuators regardless.
