EV3 and threading

Postby ruperty » Sun Jul 13, 2014 1:14 pm

I have an application to run on the EV3 which will continuously access multiple sensors and motors, and I am wondering if I need to consider running different threads for them, rather than my current scheme of accessing them serially. That is, in each iteration I may be reading 3 sensors, reading 4 motors and writing 4 motors, do any of the methods take much significant time to return?

Any thoughts?

Why not just try it and see? Without knowing what sensor you are trying to use, and what particular motor operations it really is not possible to make any useful comment. Obviously you will need to avoid the blocking versions of the motor calls. I would always do things serially unless you find a problem, people are not good at writing multi-threaded code.
