I am building a pick and place using O drive and I need to implement at the very least end stops on the ends of travel to avoid the obvious driving into end stops at speed.
Is the branch at https://github.com/Wetmelon/ODrive/tree/Endstops the way other people have gone ?
I am considering two types of home.
I) One for home … Opto switches
ii) One for emergency endstop … Cut the power and introduce a brake resistor across the windings separate to the odrive board.
I have seen a video somewhere but can’t find it for the clearpath servos using a bump stop to home against.
Driving into it at a low power and using one of its readbacks (current / speed maybe).
I know there are a couple of threads on here about this but they are pretty old .
I would appreciate other users ideas / experience ?
