(continued from log "Gearbox Mk1")
Since I was going to face major problems with the Mk1 gearbox, I anticipated the construction of Mk2, featuring :
-Full metal shifting forks
-Additional shaft, allowing to dismount the gearbox more easily.
It features 4 reversible gears.
There are no synchronizers, jus basic dog clutches. The dog clutches are motioned by 9kg RC servos, from an arduino.
It is a semi-automated gearbox : when pushing "shift up" or "shift down", the algorithm does all the necessary steps to change gear.
It is a semi-intelligent gearbox that detects when errors occure (e.g. blocked mechanism) and acts accordingly.
The first trial turned to be pretty succesful and quite promissing :
