CHAPTER 3

Some Example Sensor, Actuator and Control Applications and Circuits (Hard Tasks)

3.1 Introduction

In this chapter, I will present a few useful “cookbook” applications for real-time control circuits designed to perform some specific low-level task and interface with a master controller for instructions and overmonitoring. For the moment, we will deal principally with the design and firmware of the peripherals themselves. In the next chapter, you will find more detailed detailed explanations of how to develop Linux code to access these peripherals from an embedded PC-compatible SBC or desktop PC. The purpose of this chapter is to provide introductory-level information on how to interface with some common robotics-type sensors and actuators, ...
