Analog Joystick and RoboClaw

The RoboClaw has several useful control methods, one of them being analog control. With analog control you can use a variety of user interface options so long as they output an appropriate analog voltage. In this Application Note we’ll be using an analog joystick to control two motors with the RoboClaw in analog mode.

PID Control and Motor Controllers

Motor controller like the RoboClaw used feedback from sensors like encoders to maintain the speed and position of motors. Internally, a system called a PID controller is used to maintain these values at their given setpoints. In this App Note we’ll be looking at the what, why and how of a PID controller.

Pololu Encoder Wiring

Encoders allow the RoboClaw to provide accurate and consistent speed and position control of motors. In this Application Note we’ll be wiring a common motor and encoder combination to the RoboClaw.
