I started writing a library for controlling the Pololu motor controllers with a computer trough a serial port.
I’m writing this in Python so the code can be cross-platform but I would be very glad to have some feedback about running it on other OSs than Linux. Actually, any feedback would be very welcome.
As of now it can interface with the Pololu Micro Serial Servo Controller that I got form RobotShop. I am planning to use this code in my upcoming project RobotShop is sponsoring. I will supplement this library as I get newer hardware to work with.
I know there is already a python interface for it but I really wanted to have an object oriented way of managing motors (i.e. they can be instantiated and controlled more easily).
You can download the library here: lib_pololu.py (you will need to change the extension of the file to .py instead of txt).
In order to properly use this library you will require:
