Research Project Concerning Programmed Speed and Accurate Tasks

Hi, I’m doing a research project and experiment, and I’d like to know if anyone knew about any good websites I could use that relate to the programmed speed of a simple bot affecting how accurate a simple task is performed. I’m using simple vex robot I had last year for the experiment.

do you mean how accurate a robot’s movements can be?

I would look into PID. http://georgegillard.com/documents/2-introduction-to-pid-controllers
I would use that guide. It’s somewhat hard to understand though. Another PID resource is Matlab’s series explaning it: https://www.mathworks.com/videos/understanding-pid-control-part-1-what-is-pid-control--1527089264373.html

Also look into motion profiling. Trapezoid profiles should be easy to understand. You could try looking at s curve motion profiles, but they are very complicated.

You could also look at odometry.

Some of these things will be above your level

I would agree that a PID is very important to moving accurately and tuned right it is very helpful for your future.
