Collaboration diagram for roboteq:

Provides position2d interface to the Roboteq AX2550 motor controller This driver ignores all configuration requests and produces no data although the hardware device supports a number of configurations and data over the serial link. It simply accepts 2 types of commmands translation and rotation, then converts these to the syntax used by the Roboteq. This driver uses the configuration file options max_rot_spd and max_trans_spd to scale commands sent to the controller. These values can be determined by testing with RC -- or closed loop could be implemented by integrating dead-reckoning devices.
