RVR Motor Encoder Values

Is anyone aware of a way to get the motor encoder values from the RVR? I have a usecase that would greatly benefit from odometry and based on the information in the RVR youtube videos where they mention that the RVR can detect and compensate for slippage of a track to maintain its heading they much have encoders on the motors yet the SDK doesn’t list the encoders as a sensor value we can read.

I opened a GitHub issue against the SDK to see if I can get an answer but figured I’d post here too:

This has been asked and answered, previously. The encoders are not accessible. They may be available in a firmware upgrade during the 1st quarter.

Thanks. Have they committed to including it in the next firmware? I couldn’t find any previous thread on this. Do you have it handy?

Actually I see a thread saying you can access the x and y travel distances via the locator sensor stream and that it is derived from the encoders. So it seems what I want is already possible. Will try it tomorrow.
