Dagu 5rover arduino code

Hello i Got the dagu 5 rover and the 4wd motor controller, attached it to an arduino,  i wrote code to use it but it doesn't seem to be functional

 

volatile int rotaryCount = 0;

 

#define INTERRUPT0 0  // that is, pin 2

#define INTERRUPT1 1//pin 3

 

#define DIRECTIONA 4

#define MOTORA 5

 

#define DIRECTIONB 7

#define MOTORB 6

 

int QEM [16] = {0,-1,1,2,1,0,2,-1,-1,2,0,1,2,1,-1,0};               // Quadrature Encoder Matrix

Autonomous Navigation Requirements

Guy's I'm completely new to this and just ordered my first prototype kit with the following components as a starting point.

1. Arduino UNO Rev3

2. Dagu Rover 5 4wd

3. Parallax PING

4. Motor shield kit

Dagu Rover 5 2WD + 2Encoders + PCB + Arduino Mega + Pan & Tilt with IR

Hi All, As a complete novice at this I thought it would be a great idea to get a Dagu Rover 5 with the addons for the kids at school and start up a club to program it. How wrong I was! I am in need of some serious help guys... I've managed to plug everything in, the 2 motors and encoders on the underside of the PCB board and have chosen not to use the 6xAA battery pack (9V) in favour of a single 9V battery (fits better under the PCB with all the cables). Problem number 1 is this: I think I am plugging in the black and red cables into the PCB in the correct locations - on the top

Rover 5: how to measure distance with one encoder output

I recently bought a Rover 5, Arduino Uno and 2A Motor Shield and made my first sketches.
I would now like to use the encoders to control the motors and I have a question about that.

I would like to measure distance and am not interested in direction.
That must be possible with one encoder output but how?

Rover 5 2WD with Explorer PCB ... Which Arduino should I use?

Hi all,

Building my first robot here .

I have narrowed down my search in to these

1.Rover 5 2WD

2.Degu Explorer PCB

Not sure which Arduino board to go with , I have hopes of attaching a IR Compound Eye and a spycam later .

Can I do this with Arduino UNO? or should I go for Spider board?

Apart from that what else should I buy to get me going?

Thanks in advance

U7 got fried for some reason :(

I just got my Dagu 4 Channel Motor Controller, already a small part gave some smoke and one motor channel is not working anymore.

All four wheels were turning at the same time before the channel4 got fried.

Connections:

  VCC to Arduino 5V

4 PWM on the motor controller to 4 PWMs on the Arduino uno.

The is the Rover I build. The Rover is able to turn its body and to change the position of so that the underside becomes the upper side. Initially, I use 4 motors … Read more

different versions of dagu controller behave differently?

Hi,

I posted this yesterday in someone else's thread and was advised to start a new one.  My message from yesterday:

This is my first post, so forgive me if I break protocol.  I bought a rover 5 and then bought a dagu 4 channel controller from a british outfit (robosavvy) and was able to create my first robot.  Super cool!
