Motor position memory

When working in autonomous, does the motor know where it is at? If I use blocks to “Set motor position to 0 degrees”, can I run various commands that move it 1/4 turn, 15-degrees, a few more movements and then come back and ask the motor to move to a precise point based off my initial zero point? “Spin Motor to 100-degrees”?


Keep in mind if you are turning in a drivetrain you’d need odometry to make it back to your exact starting position

This is especially useful for an arm. If you want it to go back to the bottom at the end of the program, just tell the arm to go to 0 degrees.

Thanks, I realized last night the reason I was doubting myself was because I was on a small input gear and was watching results on a large output gear. I just brain farted on the fact that I was working within a gear ratio.
