When do I need to care about quadrature?
January 15, 2012
Could someone give me examples of where they are using information from quadrature encoders on a motor?
I am setting up a Rover 5 and am not sure why I would connect the quadrature pins (at the moment at least). From my reading it seems that you use quadrature to determine: speed of rotation and direction of rotation (and possibly orientation of the shaft/distance travelled?) Is there more to it that I'm missing?
