Hadabot: Wheel velocity using encoders and an ESP32 running MicroPython

Hi All,

Odometry is materializing for the Hadabot kit - slowly but surely?!

Read the new Hadabot post showcasing the use of wheel encoders to compute rotational velocity using an ESP32 running MicroPython, communicating with a ROS2 system running as Docker containers.

For those unfamiliar with my Hadabot effort - Hadabot is a robot kit to learn ROS 2 and robotics. It’s meant for software engineers who never had formal robotics training yet want to learn robotics concepts through learning and building.

My goal is to make a robot kit that is economical, easy to build, easy to set up, and emphasizes a web-browser interface to ensure a consistent user experience.

The new Hadabot kit targeting ROS 2 is currently in development. I am posting my progress regularly through the Hadabot blog.

As usual, love to hear feedback, suggestions, encouragements (discouragements).

Thanks and happy building!
Jack “the Hadabot Maker”
