    orso2020 got a reaction from Fred in Automatic Scoring for Foosball   
    Planning to beef up a really old, rickity, foosball table with some led's and photoresistors in order to automate my scoring. It is such an old table, having these sensors will be like placing a laser scope on a musket. But, I just can't resist. Maybe future projects could include cameras set up with instant replay, and including some audio into the game scheme, Or how about a scoring system to keep track of players records for a type of league play. Go Foosball!!! Pictures to come....

    I'm having some trouble with the points being counted automatically. Using an LED with the photoresistor. I think I need a light with a more direct light. I wonder if a laser pointer would work with a photoresistor? Or, I guess I could direct the light of the LED with some kind of 3D print. more posts to follow.  ;-)

    some pics of the table at hand, and my first upgrade of many. The foosball table is a 1 goalie style, with the sloped corners. very fast play. The circuit I have set is a simple LED scoring system, wired to photoresistors that record a point as the ball passes over the goal, blocking the light of the photoresistor is shaded by the scoring ball. Check it out, looking forward to hearing any comments. thanks for reading this.

    orso2020 reacted to spirilis in MSP430g2553 1mhz or 16mhz? how to set it?   
    G2xx2 and G2xx3 do have constants for 1MHz, 8MHz, 12MHz and 16MHz.  G2xx1's don't.

    orso2020 reacted to Fred in stepper position feedback options?   
    Is using feedback with a stepper a great idea? I always felt you generally had a two options for positioning - either using a motor with feedback (i.e. a servo, whether off the shelf or rolling your own) or using a stepper.
     
    If a stepper is correctly chosen and powerful enough, driven properly, etc. then it should predictably go to the position you set. I can imagine if it's underpowered and a step out then sending another move pulse might even encourage it to skip backwards further.
     
    Feel free to enlighten me if my knowledge of steppers and servos is a little basic.

    orso2020 reacted to JWoodrell in Tower Pro Mg995 only turns 120 deg   
    Their onboard circuits are built for +- 60 degrees from center on a 1ms - 2ms pulse scale. You can drive them further than that with a slightly wider pulse band (0.7 - 2.3) but you are still limited in rotation, to get "full" control ypull have to gut the electronics package in the servo and drive the motor drivers yourself with the msp430, as well as reading the potentiometer for feedback. You may have to cut out a mechanical stop lug on the output gear but its easy to do
