Tech Tip of the Week 

This week’s Tech Tip highlights proper encoder use within the FIRST Tech Challenge SDK. Encoders are the devices that track how much a motor shaft has rotated, which the vast majority of motors used in FIRST Tech Challenge have built-in. The encoders on the motors can help track a motor, but they can also be used to help synchronize and control motors via “Motor Modes” built into the Control and Expansion Hub firmware.  

Did you know that most programmers use these motor modes incorrectly? More on these “Motor Modes” and the correct way to use them can be found on the REV Robotics Encoder documentation.
