I would like some clarification on the status of the v5 rotation sensors’ update rate. Our team has a few rotation sensors, but we are weighing pros and cons of using the 3 wire optical shaft encoders instead (for the use of odometry). It has been established that the optical shaft encoders update every 10 milliseconds. However, I have seen that the rotation sensors only update every 20 milliseconds. For the use of odometry a higher update rate is desirable.
In other topics, such as this one, JP said that in vexos 1.0.13, they would be changing the update rate somehow. Is this an option that has to be changed in the user code? I cannot find anything related to the update rate in the vexcodePro API.
I guess what I’m trying to ask is what is the actual update rate of the v5 rotation sensor, and is there a way to change it?
Another question for more experienced teams would be: which sensor is better for odometry?
