Using an Incremental Rotary Encoder

An rotary encoder is sitting on the shaft of a motor converting the motion of the shaft into digital information. This information then could be used to tell speed and direction of the motor. A very understandable introduction to this kind of encoders, and an example of how to use the encoders that come with the ROVER 5 gear motors could be found in this post from „OddBot“ on „Let’s Make Robots!„.
