At a high level, you would need to do something like this: Create a kinematic chain the helps you map from the 2D configuration space (the position of the linear actuators) to the 3D task space (the position of the end of the robotic arm). Use inverse kinematics (IK) to figure out how the actuators needs to be positioned for a desired task space position. ...

And more often than not you learn it by using it together with others that know more than you. Then, I would assess three things: Are there C++ projects in my domain of expertise to which I’d like to contribute? This could be open-source ones, or ...

My ideia is to take the advantage of the libraries written in c++. What i do (doesn't work for anyone) is just erase code inside some functions and implement my own function and test within the ...

First, you need to find out how the encoder is used in your system. There are two sketches of plugs, I assume your encoder is connected as shown in the upper sketch. Since the company who produced this is still producing and selling encoders, website here, I would start by giving them a call. First of all ask, if they can provide a drop in replacement. It ...
