I am pretty proud that I was able to construct a ‘Rita Shaker’ that was really to close to what i desired. As this is a prototype there are many improvements that can be made to the design. They are as follows:
Servo motors with greater torque would be of great use. The ‘Rita Shaker’ struggled when too much was added to the blue shaker.
I would like to incorporate more switches to control the number of shakes a performed.
The addition of casing to conceal the electronic components.
Possible shortening of the arms.
Reinforcement of the attachment between the servo motors and the base.
Overall aesthetic improvement.
Add code to let different speed setting be enabled.
Add code to set a specific amount of shakes.
Add code to return arms to vertical position when complete.
