Project Supervisors

Okay.  I’ve just explained to you my concepts, and my design strategy.  Now I know the design strategy doesn’t match up with the way mechanical engineers do things, but it is the way we do things in electronics.  The limits we are going to hit here are mechanical.  I can make my electronics do almost any maths that I can describe, and unless you start breaking the laws of physics or operating another controller against me, your stuff won’t be so unpredictable that it is impossible to control, even if I can’t move it fast.  Please stop trying to impose limits on my design that don’t exist.

Oh, and I’m asking you a question about whether my circuit diagrams will be suitable to illustrate my concepts.  So why are you instead telling me what (pointless) things I can sketch to illustrate how my circuit works.  None of your examples match up to what I’ve got, and you still haven’t answered my question.  I can’t draw a diagram explaining how different parts of the circuit activate at different times in a motion, because it doesn’t work like that.  It’s a microcontroller, not a mechanical controller with weights and balances!

I hate working as the only electronics engineer in a group of mechanical engineers.

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
