Comments: Building a Safe Cracking Robot


Comments 4 comments

  • The part of me that spends hours playing with Delta Tau motion controllers at work is slightly pained by the tuning on that servo. Still pretty cool though!

  • What caused the robot to fail the second/third/forth retry?

    • Great question - I haven’t been able to dig into it. I think it had to do with the initialization code from a given set of combinations. We did a lot of testing from starting 0/97/0, but not nearly as much from the user menu start (xx/yy/zz). If I had to guess I messed up the code and the robot was not correctly going to 24 (disc A) after reset.

  • Excellent! You have inspired me to replace the mechanical lock on my safe with an electronic one – of my design, of course.
