Post Wheel circumference/diameter
What are the circumference and/or diameter of the large and small tetrix wheels?

What distance do each of the 1440 segments represent?

Post Re: Wheel circumference/diameter
This will change depending on your drivetrain, the amount of gearing you have, the amount of resistance, etc.

test it out and determine how far it drives your robot

I believe the wheels are 3" and 4" respectively in diameter, which means 3pi and 4pi in circumference...

if you need a more absolute distance, use the sonar sensor, I have found it to be much more reliable than encoders for distance measuring, but its up to you
