I'm using 8 linear actuators for my project and am currently able to control the position and velocity of each actuator. I would like to be able to control the acceleration of each actuator and have it be proportional to pressure sensors which I will add to my device in a few weeks. Is this possible?
Is this possible?
Yes, considering acceleration = d/dt velocity, and you have control over the velocity. Therefore, you have control over it's acceleration.
Is this possible and could anyone help me think of a way of doing it?
To accelerate, simply increase the velocity.
Hint, the definition of acceleration is (change in velocity)/(time to change).
