I've got another update on the project. This time I've made an instructional video showing how to super glue the magnet on to the end of the motor - a task necessary for operation of the encoder. The encoders on Rover (and other robots of mine like Skittles) give the motor controller precise control over motor torque, velocity, and position. This advanced control is critical to making safe, useful robots that can perform a wide variety of helpful tasks.
Without further ado, check out the encoder magnet installation tutorial below:
