Decimus data – 2

With new tyres and a tweak to the acceleration profilers it is time to grab some data from Decimus again. The tyre seem to give me reliable grip up to 4m/s/s. They will probably manage more but I seem to have other control issues then. In any case, a dusty maze will soon put paid to that. For this trial, the mouse was commanded to move forward 4 squares with no limit on its top speed…

Decimus performance graphs

Time to do some tuning of the motion control parameters in Decimus. First I wanted to get some idea of how it is behaving with the initial settings. I have added a simple flight recorder function. A 4 kB buffer can hold up to 2000 integers. These are placed in the buffer on every timer tick. Thus I can record one second of two integers. this isn’t much but it is all I have available on the processor. Any future mouse will have to have a bigger data buffer.
