Nice. Our team was contemplating the effects on performance if we used an arm control system such as this one. I was just wondering but what kind of pots did you use?

thanks, vivek

We just used a standard 100k copper wound pot on it.

we played with the idea of something like this. Have you found any real draw backs to this?

The vast improvements in intuitiveness far outweigh any possible drawbacks. i can't even think of any draw backs besides you have to walk forward and plug it in after autonomous.

That looks awesome. I know on 548 we experimented with somthing like that a few years ago http://www.chiefdelphi.com/media/photos/21259. We were thinking about doing somthing like that again only with these analog sensors that change the resistance based uppon how much they are streched so that we could use the wrist and fingers to control certain elements of the robot.

Now, mount some large servohydraulic actuators on the joints... :ahh:
