Latency and Operating Delays

This work is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 which requires attribution, by citing either this paper or the creator's name and a link to softrobotics.io

One of the best  characteristic of this platform is that the latency and time delays when a user interacts with FlowIO via the Graphical User Interface are imperceptible and everything feels instantaneous. 

Nevertheless, even if imperceptible, time delays and latency are present, due to the following causes:
- Pump switching times

 - Valve switching times

 - Bluetooth latency

 - Code execution time

The applications for which FlowIO has been used until now have not required exact knowledge of those time delays, therefore I have not measured them yet. If you are interested in this information, let me know and I can do some measurements.

There is much more documentation, tutorials, project videos, and other content that is slowly being added to this website. If interested in helping with any of these or other tasks, please consider volunteering.
