Simple Motor Optical Encoder

Simple Motor Optical Encoder: "There are many different types of motor encoders out there. Most common is an encoder that attaches to the back of the DC motor. Today we'll be looking at an encoder attached to the mechanics and not simply the motor. There is no real benefit to doing things this way other than, it's easier and uses bottom-line cheap parts you can buy at radio shack."
