PASCO Live: Constant Velocity with the Smart Cart Motor
Thursday, March 11th, 2021 @ 3PM EST
The Smart Cart Motor is a motor-driven wheel that attaches to the Smart Cart to make it go at a constant velocity, forwards or backwards. In PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue, you can control the motor remotely through its wired connection to the Smart Cart by setting the power on a scale of -100 to +100%.
The Smart Cart Motor can be programmed in Blockly in PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue to execute movements based on sensor measurements. For instance, the Motor can be programmed to decrease in velocity as the position of the Smart Cart increases. You can program the Smart Cart to follow equations of motion and graph the real-time motion on a plot of the theoretical equation of motion.
