I need to investigate quadrature decoding of multiple encoders. I was very interested in the magnetic encoder pair that is for sale here. I could just purchase a couple of motors and the encoders and go from there, but I figured why not make something that I might be able to use in the future. So a few questions come to mind.
First, is there some set of parts that someone would suggest I buy assuming a don’t have an infinite budget?
Looking at the robotic offerings I think a Zumo Chassis Kit and a couple of motors and the encoders might get me started.
Next question: If I go that way will the motors that work with the encoders fit the Zumo?
I see a plethora of things that might be motor controllers but no way to figure out which might go with what motor.
Last question, if I follow this thread, which motor should I use? I have no way to evaluate the choices. I don’t have a specific purpose, so I just want something that will move around at a reasonable speed.
Very last question, what am I missing? I have a Teensy 3.1 I’ll be using to work with the encoders.
And please don’t answer with something like “You can use any motor you want”
