Auto Tuning with Motion Studio

In systems with a PID controller the proportional, integral and derivative values must be set properly for the controller to operate well. Motion Studio features software to automatically tune these values for a motor and encoder combination. In this Application Note we’ll look at how to use it and fine tune the results.

Using Encoders with the Python Library

Encoders are useful as part of a feedback system to maintain speed, position and track distance. RoboClaw does these things automatically however encoder attached to a roboClaw can be controlled and used with custom code using the BasicMicro Python library. This Application Notes covers how to use the available encoder functionality of the library.
