Job description

To evaluate the robustness of a capacitive touch implementation, an automated long-term test setup is needed to monitor the touch behavior. A capacitive touch finger is moved onto the touch key, while a monitoring device checks and logs the status of the button. This process will be repeated numerous times and that is why an automated setup is required.

Your task
o Use the G-Code to drive the XYZ-table
o Implement a monitoring and logging software
to evaluate the touch status of the keys
o Design the placeholders for the units on the
XYZ table (3D printing)
