Raw encoder output from UART

Hi There,

I'm working on a project where I would need to know the exact location of the motor based on the encoder position (number of ticks detected). I'm using the ros nodes built by MIT for their Racecar project but I've noticed the tachometer UART output is not always accurate and seems to change position even with the encoder unplugged. I was wondering if there was an easy fix for outputting the encoder position (raw?) as detected by the firmware without being fused with any other data?

Many thanks,

Nathan
