Mysterious Moving Issue Solved (I think)

GroG's picture

Gael described a problematic issue where omoplates and other parts failed to reset themselves after a "rest" command.  It was difficult because it did not seem consistent.  Problems which always fail 100% are usually easy to solve. This one wasn't.  But I think I've got it....

torso.midStom.setMinMax(0, 180);
torso.lowStom.setMinMax(0, 180);
i01.moveTorso(50, 90, 73)

I have thought many times in the past, that most of the walking bots are way too stiff.. Besides boston dynamics I saw a cockroach video where metal leaf springs were incorporated - what a big difference in gate !
