Hello,
I am trying to implement a function that calculates the position for a counter of a motor. I would like to store the postion values for the different times in a vector (or array?). This is the function I implemented:

void main(void)
{      
      float pi=0; //initial position; later != 0
      float a=pi;
      float vi=0; //initial velocity
      float b=vi;
      float qf; //final position
      qf=8200; //approximately 2 turns
      float c=3*qf;
      float d=-2*qf;

      float Tf=1; //final time
      float Ti=0; //initial time
      float Ts=0.01; //sampling time
      float nmuestras = Tf/Ts;
      int i;

      for (i=1;i<=nmuestras;i++)
      {
            float tiempo=i*Ts; //real time
            float t=tiempo/Tf;
            
            /*
            float *ptr;
            float pos;
            ptr = &pos;
            *ptr = a+b*t+c*t^2+d*t^3;
            */


            //pos_final(t);
            float pos;
            pos = a+b*t+c*t^2+d*t^3;
            //float pos = a+b*t+c*t^2+d*t^3;
            int k;
            pos_vector[k] = pos;//put the counter value in the array for storing counter values
            
       
            k++;

            
      }            

I get the following errors and don´t know how to get rid of them:

ompiling...

Error executing cl.exe.

test control2.obj - 5 error(s), 2 warning(s)


Do I maybe have to include libraries or introduce pointers?

Hi jutzki

One of your main problems is that you do not seem to be aware that expressions involving mixed decimal types always result in a value of type double. To assign the result of such an expression to a float you need to perform a cast.

e.g.
float nmuestras = Tf/Ts;  //should change to float nmuestras = (float) (Tf/Ts);

You also have a problem with this expression,

pos = a+b*t+c*t^2+d*t^3

^ is the XOR operator in C++. If you want to raise numbers to certain powers you have to use the pow() function in the Math library.

e.g. pos = (float) (a+b*t+c*pow(t, 2)+d*pow(t, 3));
