I've bin workin on an adaptive control system of an aircraft using neural networks... so i need to control the angle of the ailerons using steppers... i've created and trained the neural network in matlab but i dunno how to make a closed loop control by interfacing it with a stepper motor... can any1 help me out with this???

I have 16 solenoids that need controlling to open air valves in sequence that create bubbles in a fountain that simulate moon phases. Would like something that is stand alone hardware over a program that would require a computer to be on 24/7.

I would like to build something to keep my wood fired smoker at a constant temp by a forced air fan and dont want to spend 300 for a guru1
I am new to process control software. We are working on a solar steam project that will require some form of automated control. We need suggestions for software (preferably open source and will run on a windows pc) that will handle temp and pressure data aquisition. The software should also be able to affect small electric motors based on the data parameters. Also any recommendations for temp and pressure (psi) sensors would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any suggestions

I have these controls http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXLDP9**&P=MLOn the receiver end each channel has 2 negatives and one positive so you can switch polarity. My transmitter is not doing anything on any channel and I get constant current flow in one direction even when the transmitters off. I donâ€™t know much about these types of controls and I looked through the manual and canâ€™t find anything to help. Is there something wrong with the controls or is something else going on? Can anyone help?

Hi I have a remote controlled bait boat tht I use for fishing but the remote control ain't great and was wondering if I could maybe change it for an old one off of a RC car (cheap child's one) as the one I have ony has 3 buttons, 1 for forward and 2 for left n right, oh and 1 for activating the hopper to let the bait out, if this is possible and someone could give me some advise I would be very grateful, also obviuosly my boat hasn't got a reverse could tht be incorporated into it or is tht gonna be a whole new motor??

Ok so first off i just cant wrap my head around this for some reason...... what im looking to do (basically) is have a "pod" turn left and right i want it to be controlled via some type of joystick. i get the mechanics but i just dont understand the electronics. i think i need some kind of pwm motor control. well i just got all the stuff to follow some of the instructables on here but i get nothing.......well i got a smoking pot? no pun intended anyway please someone help

The letters have worn off my tv remote control over time and i am looking for ways to reprint those letters onto the casing....at the same time I was thinking of customizing the remote control casing ie. taking the electronic internals out and building a cool looking casing out of plexiglass or something but i would still need to print the numbers/labels onto the case

I am making a control box for 8 electric hoists. I want to use 8 DPDT toggle switches for directionality (up or down) and use a push button for movement. Example: I want to be able to move hoists 1 and 2 up and 3 down at the same time. The hoists I'm using currently have individual pickles with rocker DPDT switches but want to combine them all into a single box. If someone could help that would be great.

Asked by saberwing 8 years ago
My goal is to press a button on my transmitter side and have the receiver flip a relay - that's all. It's probably the simplest possible use of RF technology... and it's almost impossible to work out on google. I am trying to transmit and receive just a simple control signal about a range of 300m, so dismantling 27Mhz toy cars is not an option. Has anyone successfully made a simple RF circuit before? I can buy a 433Mhz transmitter with this range, but they take FSK or ASK modulated signals. From what i can tell, there is nothing simpler than the 'OOK' version of ASK modulation for transmitting signals. If I'm wrong, please correct me. Otherwise, if I'm stuck with FSK or ASK. I found one site (bottom of PDF: http://www.edn.com/contents/images/101101di.pdf) providing a simple circuit to produce FSK. I was hoping for something simpler, but if you think this is the easiest way, i'll give it a shot. Can someone guide me towards the correct ICs and circuits to create this project? Thanks in advance for your help

Wife approved Home Theater I plan to build raised panel cabinets that also hide home theater speakers and 60" screen. Open display/bookshelves sit between the speaker garage and the 60" screen. The raised panel (I'll make with my 5hp shaper) covering the speaker will roll over the display cabinet allowing the speakers to move out into the room on motorized platforms. Then, the speakers will rotate on a motorized turntable to the desired position. Next, the two panels covering the screen will move under the speaker panels and also cover the display cabinet plus a little of the garage space. I want this to all be initiated with the push of a button. The motors will all be sequential in the above order. First, the speaker panel can roll until it hits a button, next, the speaker platform movement could be controlled by motor revolutions as in a stepmotor and would stop the platform at the right spot. When this action is complete, the speaker rotation could also use a step motor count. Next, the two screen panels will roll under the speaker panels until they hit a final stop button. I will need a central controller to manage the sequence order. I am familiar with Fishertechnik robotics controllers but I'm hoping that someone here can give me some suggestions to make this work. Thanks for reading. Chuck

This is a question about an onboard generator for a robot. Obviously id like to achieve homeostasis at around 12.5-13v. When my car battery reaches full capacity (13.8v) the servo releases the throttle. When it falls below 12v it increases idle to full. Im new to the game go easy on me im waiting on my pic programmer to get here let me know if theres an easy way to do it. -Brian

Hi, im wanting to build somthing simple to control the heater control valve on my fiesta. its a simple solenoid valve at 0v its open(hot) at 12v(14.4v) its closed(cold) the propper control board uses pulses to control the valve, the board has since given up and im left with a very hot car, now i thought a simple way to sort the problem might be to use the 10k pot on the control board with a MOSFET and just vary the voltage going to the valve. will this have the same effect on the valve?
