We have something new! From now on every Tuesday one of our technical departments will give a brief explanation about the parts of the exoskeleton they are working on and with that they will explain the technology behind it in more detail! Today we start with Software & Control.
The Software & Control Department of MARCH has worked with the test setup that is shown in the video below for the last few months. This setup contains the exact same electronics as the final joint of the MARCH II. In this way we can test our software already far before the production of the joint is ready!
To this setup commandos can be sent like "turn the motor to angle a" or "turn the motor with speed b". Later on the gait of the exoskeleton will be brought to life in this way. We can also let the motor sing by running it on frequencies that fit the notes of a particular song as can be seen in the following video!
