There are two approaches to generating good PID parameters. A theoretical approach involves either extensive physical characterization and mathematical modeling of your system (although computer programs like Matlab can do a lot of this numerically, but it’s still a lot of work to set up).
I prefer a more empirical approach (i.e. try and see), and there is a short description of a good (I think) technique in this thread.
So, what’s your plan for these motors; are they still controlling your windshield wipers?
thank you Adam. I will take a shot at these recommendations.
My project is codenamed, “Home Motion Deck”. Goal is to provide a DIY route of building a home motion simulation and “rider” platform soln at low costs. We will see where that goes :). I will provide more details on my projects site : nagiprojects.crosscity.com/
Also, many thanks for Jan (and Pololu) for patiently answering several of my questions earlier this am - w/ recommendation that SMC04 would be a better MC for my project
