Owning Palette: Steering VIs
Requires: Robotics Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.
Use the Motor Communication VIs to connect robot vehicle wheels to motors that control wheel angle and velocity. When you initiate a communication session between a wheel and the motor that controls the wheel, you can read and write motor data according to the position of the wheel as it moves.
|Close Motor Communication||Terminates a communication session between a motor and the wheel the motor controls. Wire data to the motor communication in input to determine the polymorphic instance to use or manually select the instance.|
|Get Motor Setpoint||Returns the angles or angular velocity setpoints from the motor communication session. You must manually select the polymorphic instance to use.|
|Initialize Motor Communication||Begins a communication session for the motor that controls the wheel you specify.|
|Update Motor State||Writes angle or angular velocity values of the motor or motors to the motor communication session. You must manually select the polymorphic instance to use.|
