Profligate (but not wasteful) tinkerer and generalist.

  • I have a similar motor/encoder and I’m using two sensors per motor to get quadrature encoding that allows me to detect the direction of rotation. Make sure the encoders are rigidly mounted to preserve the spacing…

  • Don’t hold your breath on a low-cost version of Matlab, they’ve been promising that since 1998…

  • I’m trying to use this as a wearable gadget and with about 0.5 meter of cable the shift register is seeing glitches (clocking on rising edge of data etc.) In the next rev of the board could you add some caps to provide better PS filtering to the board? I’m trying 1.0 - 4.7 uF tants and hope to improve the wire length to 1 meter.

No public wish lists :(
