That is exactly what i meant, it could be done by recording the movements on the actual robots encoders, or have a scaled down version of the robot with just encoders and use that to record the movements and translate them to the big robot, do it in real time, and you could move the big robot with the small one.
I wouldnt trust a machine like this to perform remote surgery, but helping disabled people could be a good idea.
I actually thought of this for industrial purposes.

Fernando,

Fernando, 
Here we are waiting of the World cup. The sixth star. 
I should finish this night a joystick plugin for Mach3 for version 1.90.042 that emulates functions of fire button JoyStick for codes oems buttons of the mach. 
Already of the for you to begin to play with his ROBOT 
Thanks 
Junior

Fernando,     
I have a news, very good for you.   Grin   
It can be done Immediately, this night was inspired, I already made the train to work.     
Do you understand of Electronic Circuits?

Regards
Junior

I can certainly try, I am a mechanical and electrical engineer, but my knowledge of electronics is limited.

I will make a diagram of blocks for you to understand better, you will need to develop a PCI, to read the signs of the encoder and to transform in serial rs232 or rs485 of the to do funcinar for VB Script or for Plugin (this is much Better) 
I record + - like this: 
Start|Encoder-1 Pos|Encoder-1 Vel|Encocer-2 pos|Encoder-2 Vel | Encoder-X Pos | Encoder-X Vel|CRC16|End 
Mach Restore: Well Received 
OR: I didn't understand 
He sends the protocol again 
The time of delay will be the time of sending of the communication, more time of the mach interplet the protocol: (Almost ANYTHING)

Later I make a diagram for you

Best Regards

HI Fernando   
I Already developed the Hardware reading of his ROBOT'S Encoder, I ordered to do PCI today.   
   
Thanks,   
Junior

Junior,
That is good to hear... hope it works as expected.
I was thinking the other day... wouldnt it be possible to use a 1:1 mpg on each step and direction input?

That way, if you have a robotic arm suited with only encoders providing pulses as an mpg would, then those pulses could be used as inputs on drivers. I dont know even if the grex can already do this. I think even automation direct servo drives have secondary encoder inputs that might do the trick.

I just reviewed the drawing you posted earlier,
I think its exactly the same thing i was saying on my previous post.

I also reviewed the specs on the grex and automation direct servo drives, they dont seem like they could do what we were talking about.

Remember the Matrix movie with the Mech robots with machineguns for arms? (brian you think you could come up with a script for pressing a buton and activating the triger on some 50cal  machineguns? no need to worry about buffered inputs  Grin)

Hope this works junior
keep me posted.
regards
Fernando
