**RedBot Wheel Encoder**

If you are not using the RedBot Sensor - Wheel Encoder, you may skip to the next section.

If you are using the RedBot Sensor - Wheel Encoder, in this section you will be tightening down the RedBot Sensor - Wheel Encoder to the bottom chassis piece.

Locate the following:

With the six pin male header side on the RedBot Sensor - Wheel Encoder facing upwards, place down the encoder on the top side of the bottom chassis piece. Pay close attention that the six pin male header side is also closest to the front side of the chassis. Using two 4-40 hex nuts, tighten down the RedBot Sensor - Wheel Encoder on the top side of the bottom chassis piece in the same location in the earlier “Wheel Encoder Screws” section in this assembly guide.
