I’ve been searching for around an hour for an answer to this question (or guidance). Couldn’t get much help as it’s quite specific. Would greatly appreciate any wisdom.
I’m attempting to track the movement of an object as in my diagram.
A - Ball socket
B - Handle manipulating the position of the arrow
I’d like to be able to accurate calculate the movement distance of the point B / arrow head.
I assume I can do this by replacing the ball and socket joint with two rotary sensors. One mounted on the other, perpendicular to each other. However, I don’t really have the manufacturing skill to produce this - so I’m hoping someone can suggest a solution that doesn’t require me to weld something (which I have never done before!).
