Navigation Basics

This section shows you how to make your ActivityBot move.  It covers:

  • Testing your servo/encoder system
  • Testing and tuning the system for optimal performance
  • How to drive a specific speed.
  • How to drive a specific distance

Get Oriented

From here forward, we will be talking about the robot's right and left sides, and its front and back.  These terms are from the perspective of a tiny person sitting on the white breadboard, with a hand on each post and feet dangling past the edge of the board.


Readying your Robot

Directions for testing your electrical connections are different for Feedback 360° servos and for external encoders.
