In another thread, DJ said that to prevent the "jump" on power-up of servos, we could use digital servos, and that in the new year EZ-Robots would be offering a line of digital servos with full motion range (apparently a limit on those available today).
I have a couple of questions about these.
I know digital servos can provide position feedback. Can they also provide feedback on resistance to movement? What I am looking to do is have the claws on my Roli close until they "feel" something is gripped tightly, but not too tight. Currently, I have to close based on the size and resistance to being squeezed of the object I am picking up, and if I size it wrong, the servo buzzes to complain that it is under stress. Since I am picking up cat toys, this isn't a huge deal as they can all be squished without breaking, but I would like more flexibility.
If I am right, that feedback will be available, does EZ-Robot plan on selling micro, or just full size?
