Interfacing multiple phidgets

Postby viccos » Thu Sep 06, 2012 7:35 pm


Well, I am building a mobile robot, and I am integrating multiple sensors, some of them are Phidgets, some are not. For instance, I am usind the 1061 - PhidgetAdvancedServo 8-Motor, which works verfy well with a Parallax HB-25 to control the four DC motors I have. I also have the 1056 - PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3, and the 1047 - PhidgetEncoder HighSpeed 4-Input. I need to read PhidgetSpatial and the PhidgetEncoder HighSpeed basically at the same time, or, to be more specific, at least I need to know the delay between the two readings (probably it is negligible for what I am doing).
Later on, I need to integrate some other sensors, but, if I get to solve the first part, I am pretty suce the rest will be similar.

Any suggestions? Is there a sample? I consulted the C# getting started manual, but it seems thet the information I am looking for is not there.

Best Regards and Thanks in advance...I like phidgets so much...

It's hard to guarantee any timing between two different Phidgets. Latency from the sensor measurement to the event should be on the order of 10-20 ms, so as long as you use events, you should be able to get close-together data.
