CENTER TURN Each wheel rotates in opposite directions, bot turns about it's axis. Theta is the angle to turn in degrees Ep is encoder pulses…

By phase I just meant the wheels were out of sync a sequence of encoder counts; (0,1) (1,1) (1,2) is not indicative of one wheel traveling…

Hey #812, Thanks for chiming in here! I had some fun tweaking the Twist firmware to get better resolution. I'm currently getting about 600…

I've done this with the Arduino, and the parallax boebot encoders with students. They have worse resolution than your encoders (64 per wheel…

I tried the code and it did not work for me. FOR ANYONE ELSE TRYING IT: If you want it to work, in the attachInterrupt, set the third…
