Vex 393 Motor Current?

Hello everyone, I was wondering how I would go about finding the current that is going to a motor at any given time so I can output it as a variable. Thanks in advance.

I haven’t used it myself, but I know that it estimates current and based on that estimates PTC temperature to regulate motor speeds to prevent tripping of the PTC’s. If you dig in his code you should see how he did it.

Thanks, I’ll be sure to check it out.

Maybe you might find this material interesting, also. It, too, is courtesy of jpearman.
