Encoder Project Introduction

Our project involved adding an encoder component to the MAE 148 Autonomous Vehicle we previously built. The motivation for this project was to have access to data concerning the speed and distance travelled in order to improve speed control.

The original configuration controlled the speed of the car by controlling the voltage from the battery to the motor. This voltage was based on data from user inputs(explain in step 1). The encoder allowed the voltage to be based to data concerning the actual current speed.
