Tripod Floater v2.2: For this latest installment of "Active Magnetic Bearing"-setup experiments we made two major improvements (see the other movies for more detailed explanation of the setup): 1/ we removed the 12 V power cable, and replaced it with an on board 11.1 V LiPo battery, allowing for several hours of undisturbed experimenting. 2/ Also, in order to enable communication with the floater, we added a Zigbee network. Using the Matlab serial interface, we obtain real time sensor information from the floater at about 30 samples per second, and feed that into an animation, showing real-time floater movements. Enjoy the movie.
