Introduction to Encoders

A quick introduction to what an Encoder is and what it does.

Types of Wheel Encoders

Designing/Using Encoders specifically targeted to wheels/motors.

Circuits for Sensors

Different means of sensing the encoder and "reading it"

Signal Processing

Processing Quadrature Encoders for position feedback.

Examples of Use

A PID loop designed to slow down motors that are two fast.
