# retrieve data from simple mathematical function; store data in vector(array)

Posted on 2007-03-21

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...

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

Do I maybe have to include libraries or introduce pointers?
