Better motor controller support and documentation for rover
Proposal type: Hardware [ ] , Software [X] , Other [ ] : _________________
On rover, we support a bunch of type of controller. Some of them like roboclaw or sabertooth, are high feature controller supporting close loop control and speed input.
My proposal is to bring support for more mode on roboclaw serie, specially serial output and speed control and make an abstraction class for those kind of controller.
The second part of the proposal is to update the wiki information on how to use those mode.
I will also make a page on why to avoid too cheap controller like L298N with ardupilot
I don’t need hardware as I already own a roboclaw controler and a rover.
Planned amount $$ (USD): 450
Estimated time for completion:
2 weeks on best effort basis
