Common Wheel Encoders • Magnetic Pickup – used in most ABS • Hall Effect • Optical
Systematic Errors • Unequal wheel diameters. • Average of actual wheel diameters differs from nominal wheel diameter. • Actual wheelbase differs from nominal wheelbase. • Misalignment of wheels. • Finite encoder resolution. • Finite encoder sampling rate.
Non-Systematic Errors • Travel over uneven terrain • Travel over unexpected objects • Wheel-slippage • Change in tire shape over time
