Thinking of working on a project and I'm wondering if its feasible and if the arduino would be the correct tool for the job.
I would like to control a motor that moves a plate along a distance of X meters. What i would like it 2 options.
Manual Control > Swivel Knob adjusting speed, forward/reverse. Soft stopping instead of jolting and smashing the end plate.
Automatic control > Making sure the plate is in the start position. Set a time you want for the plate to move the entire length of the rail. Hit start and away it goes. Eg Plate move across the 1m plane, in 60mins. It would then move 1.6cm, every Minute, until the end was reached.
Thanks in advance!
