i want to use a optical encoder or magnetic encoder for measuring speed from a motor
can that be done ,looking at quadrature encoders or single encoders

Currently, not easily. But i do have an idea.... hmmmm!
#3  
yea,be cool latter to have a interface .but any ideas for now will try
#4  
DJ can you share the idea with me yet

Also would be a very good add-on for EZB to be able to count pulses
great for navigation and distance traveled,and backing up and more

The idea is my next ez bit:)

I have been busy with the pcb's for a bunch. There are a few.seems like it has taken for ever. Hard to do it all alone:(

But I can't complain! I have the best job on earth:) I'm sure of it! Robots robots robots robots robots

This would be cool some like the way the Bigtrak toy worked.

i made a special magnetic quadrature encoder so hopping DJ will have a interface soon
arduino has it ,as basic stamp and mostly all microcontrollers have to read pulses
