Using the ActivityBot Encoder kit with Arduino

I have been hoping to use the encoder kit with Arduino, but I'm not sure exactly where to start in terms of creating an Arduino library similar to the one for the ActivityBot. The ActivityBot library appears require the multicore abilities of the propeller, while the BOEBot example programs are extremely hard to follow. Has anyone else done this?

  • I don't have that encoder kit, but they look like they use a standard 3 pin servo connection. This means any Arduino encoder library should work with them. Generally the Arduino libraries use two of the interrupt pins to count pulses to replace the Propellers watchdog cogs.
