The throttle control works great at 1000 hz PWM. It makes the rover capable of much finer control. Right now I'm driving around with the mouse, and it's a bit clunky. At some point I might order a USB joystick now that the rover side is working well.
Now that basic control is working, I have the following goals:
- Make a decent video showing the thing driving around.
- Integrate the video streaming into the Android app that handles the IOIO, rather than using IP Webcam.
- Improve power management.
- Possibly write a client program for Android as well, so you can drive it from a phone.
