I was reading an article in the Medical Design magazine about vibration control and this company was featured. They use a purely mechanical device to control vibration and I and wondering if the technique could be used for AP. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pick the brains of their engineering staff?

The January/February 2008 issue is not up on the net yet but maybe it will be posted later. Article: “Negative-stiffness vibration holds experiments still” Page 18.

Interesting, but the oscillation rate of the demonstration is constant, where in a heli it can vary depending on load, wind, control inputs etc etc. Writing algorithms to be predictive and reactive would be even tougher. Not to mention the scale of the technology required. Then again, maybe it can be done! Imagine that table scaled down to a 2"x2" contact point that a camera could be mounted on with a miniaturized controller handling the duty. Cool either way.

That wine glass was still viberating,, Not that great of a product if you ask me,, No differant than looking at the edges when viewing video, for vibs.. Take another look,, the wine is moving, Not nearly as much as the first glass,, but still moving,,, XGM/VGM

In the article the device is purely mechanical suspending the object in three dimensional space (no controller, no power). I have no idea how it works even after reading the article but I sure would like to know. There were blurbs on tuning the device for ½ Hz, 2Hz, 5Hz and 20Hz. I think that about covers anything that you would see in our helis.
