Encoder Magnet Installation Instructional Video

A project log for Rover V2 four wheel drive robot

Rover is a big four wheel drive 3D printed robot you can make at home. It's CC0 open source, so anyone can use it.

Howdy Rover'ers!

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:
