I want to command the motor controller using the microbasic, otherwise I want to command it via a microcomputer,. So is it possible to use both methods as I want ?
And is it possible to wire the magsensor to the microcomputer and the motor controller simultaneously ?

** Will be ther a driver for Magsensor soon ?

Thank you in advance.

You can accomplish what you are describing through the use of RoboCAN. Please take a look at our application note for it .

Do you think you can clarify what you mean by driver? The Magsensor utility should automatically install a windows driver to connect to the sensor over serial or USB.

What I mean is, will be there a ROS driver for Magsensor soon, similar to ROS driver for motor controllers .

We actually don't maintain any of the ROS drivers available. We are currently still investigating what the best way to put out a ROS driver for our products will be, and putting out a driver, but that isn't something that I have a release estimate for.

We encourage you to take a look at our Linux API. It should make it fairly easy to interface one of our sensors form a C++ ROS node.

hi,
is it possible to use linux API and roboCAN in the same time .
I mean , the functions are able to read from sensor through CANbus ?

No, our linux API is designed to be used to set up a serial connection with the sensor.

so please is this feasible?
wire the magsensor with the controller using PWM and the communication will be done via microbasics scripts .
wire the magsensor with the PC using RS232 and the communication will be done using linux API
so the magsensor sends data for both simultaneously
