I would argue that the rotation is very distinct from the potentiometer and encoder. The potentiometer and encoder are able to detect degree changes on an axel while the rotation sensor can only sense the orientation of the robot as a whole.
This post actually needs 20 char
I think you are confusing the Rotation sensor with the Inertial sensor.
I don’t know why a sensor meant for detecting the robot’s orientation needs to have a driveshaft running through it.
I think he’s talking about how it can be used as a better version of the quad encoder.
i.e. for odom
This makes it sound like he thinks it’s a gyro
Ah I see my error. I completely misinterpreted the purpose of the sensor. I was thinking of it as something similar to the gyroscope. Thank you for pointing that out
