Detailed Description

Controls motor speed and direction on the A-Star 32U4 Robot Controller.

By default, positive speed arguments ("forward") correspond to current flowing from motor driver output A to B, while negative speed arguments ("reverse") correspond to current flowing from B to A. Calling flipM1() or flipM2() with an argument of true flips the correspondence for that motor (that is, it flips the meaning of "forward" and "reverse").

This library uses Timer 1, so it will conflict with any other libraries using that timer.

Member Function Documentation

 void AStar32U4Motors::flipM1 ( bool flip )
static

Flips the direction of motor 1.

You can call this function with an argument of true if you want to flip the effect that positive and negative speeds have on the direction of motor 1.

Parameters
 flip If true, then positive motor speeds will correspond to current flowing from B to A. If false, then positive motor speeds will correspond to current flowing from A to B.

 void AStar32U4Motors::flipM2 ( bool flip )
static

Flips the direction of motor 2.

You can call this function with an argument of true if you want to flip the effect that positive and negative speeds have on the direction of motor 2.

Parameters
 flip If true, then positive motor speeds will correspond to current flowing from B to A. If false, then positive motor speeds will correspond to current flowing from A to B.

 void AStar32U4Motors::setM1Speed ( int16_t speed )
static

Sets the speed for motor 1.

Parameters
 speed A number from -400 to 400 representing the speed and direction of motor 1. Values of -400 or less result in full speed reverse, and values of 400 or more result in full speed forward.

 void AStar32U4Motors::setM2Speed ( int16_t speed )
static

Sets the speed for motor 2.

Parameters
 speed A number from -400 to 400 representing the speed and direction of motor 2. Values of -400 or less result in full speed reverse, and values of 400 or more result in full speed forward.

 void AStar32U4Motors::setSpeeds ( int16_t m2Speed, int16_t m1Speed )
static

Sets the speed for both motors.

Parameters
 m1Speed A number from -400 to 400 representing the speed and direction of motor 1. Values of -400 or less result in full speed reverse, and values of 400 or more result in full speed forward. m2Speed A number from -400 to 400 representing the speed and direction of motor 2. Values of -400 or less result in full speed reverse, and values of 400 or more result in full speed forward.
