Hello, I am kinda new to microcontrollers and their related components. I am doing a project where I have a pick and place function. However, I want to it be really simple with only 2 degrees of freedom. Extending/retracting and gripping. What kind of parts can I use for this (say to pick a book for example).
Moreover, what kind of configuration or feedback do I need in order to tell the gripper that it did pick something successfully (i.e exerted enough force on the object) or that it failed.
Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank you.
