Hi I'm really new to Arduino projects and don't really know how to start. I'have to do a project for university. The programming part should be no problem but I don't have any experiance with electronics.
What I try to achieve is to record a spezific motor movement. For expample I move a modelcar, record the movement and let arduino repeat that motion. How can I do something like that?
I've read that servo movement can be recorded but non-industrial servos are not for multiple rotations and are not very strong. It should be able to move up to 6.6 pounds record a varying movement over a distane of 10 feet. Is it possible to record the motion with something else and do the movement with a stepper-motor?
Edit: I want the motor to repeat the acelleration. So I move the car that the gearing mechanism makes a particular movement. I want to detect how long the motor has to run and how fast it has to be at every moment in that timeframe. I'm only interested in forth and back.
