Magnetic strip length

I am just getting into designing my first AGV system as an innovation project, all is good so far.


However I am wondering when you define markers for the mag strip reader to command the agv's movements do you have to specify a set length when you cut the magnetic strips for markers? so for example a left turn in the binary is set to 0b11010100 how will the system differentiate between the 1's and 0's for the command? do the marker strips have to be a defined length set in the configuration or is it just a timed sequence over a certain distance. I haven't found anything that tells you how to define the magnetic strip markers.


thank you

Our magsensor detects markers on a presence/absence basis. You can query if the magsensor sees a marker using the MGM command, using the MGS command. Both these commands debug the markers' presence/absence.

If you can clarify which binary implementation you are talking about, that would be a big help. If you are referring to the output of MGS, second and third bits in that result correspond to the presence/absence of a left and right marker.
