Basic 2-motor joystick control program

(Richard) #1

I had trouble finding a simple, and basic, 2-motor control program for x-y control of the T100 thrusters to use on my ROV project. I am new to C so I had to keep it very simple. I just wrote my own program which works very well with the BR ESC’s. It is attached for your use if your just getting started.

There is an error in the above attached program. Beginning of loop() should read:
xJoyVal = analogRead(xPin);
yJoyVal = analogRead(yPin);
//Map Arduino analog read to desired output to ESC’s
xJoyVal = map(xJoyVal, 0,1023,1100,1900);
yJoyVal = map(yJoyVal, 0,1023,1100,1900);
