Hi all, today I discovered the mean value filter math plugin. it was a great discovery for me but I have a little doubt about.
Ok, I am using my LEFT axis for this example and in this axis there was only the 26 vertical effect:
Not using this math plugin:
My profile vertical force order to my motor to go from pos-40 to pos100 and immediately after from pos100 to pos -10.
Ok, all work good but I notice that in this movement path I got a lot of positive and negative movement peaks. So the movement path was not linear but was full of peaks making the motor movement really disorderly.
Using this math plugin:
Using this mean value filter (with 30 as value requested from this math plugin):
Ok the ordered movement path was the same of previous case but this time I get a much more linear and "smooth" making the motor movement really orderly and above all, much more visible.
Ok, now my doubt:
So the example work great but now I have to test this plugin on my LEFT axis with ALL effects (lateral, longitudinal, vertical).
here the pic:
And finally my question! :
the mean value filter math plugin ask "choose a number of values to use".. ok I put 30.
Watching the pic, what mean this 30?
A) the "mean value filter" take the values of the last 30 cycles of the "26 effect" and it build an average value to use.
B) the "mean value filter" take the values of the last 30 cycles of ALL the effects (vertical, lateral,longitudinal) in the axis and it build an average value (I repeat, of all the effects!) to use.
So, can I get "mean value filter" working just on "26 effect" of my axis?
Or it will include all the effects of the axis (vertical, lateral, longitudinal) to make the average value?
Thank you so mutch and please.. use your best basic english possible!
