HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
I have a robot that uses 2 encoders, one on the left and on on the right side. I'm using the Wheel Watcher encoders on a GM8 from solarbotics, i uploaded a vid to youtube to help you guys better visualize my problem:
I've done many software tweeks and changes to confirm its not a software problem, but my robot isnt accurate, i dont know if it the encoders or something else, but sometimes the robot stops waaay too early (b4 the tennis ball) or it even goes so far as to knock/push the tennis ball away, so if you watch the video does that seem like a reasonable 5% of the enocoders or is there something like idk maybe noise from the motors affecting it? Coming here is my last resort, i will greatly appreciate any help i can get.
Now that i tihnk about it, when i run it, it goes the right distance for ALL twists and travels, but when it ramdomly messes up, i think every thing is off :O like all the parts of it travel
