Essentially I have a robotic arm with two linear actuators. Lets say, for example, I wanted the endpoint on the arm (where you see the stepper motors) to move purely in the x direction (extending outwards). Both linear actuators would have to move in tandem with each other at the correct velocities to ensure that they cancel out each others y movements and sum up their x movements.
I have equations that relate the required angular velocity of each segment (and therefore velocities of each linear actuator) to get from point A to point B. I am just confused how to implement this now.
My electronics consist of an arduino and H-bridge. Feedback are potentiometers at the joints.
I'm just looking for general guidance on the procedure, as I am just not sure what steps I need to take here. I have taken a number of classes in control systems, but don't quite understand how to relate all the theory to practice.
