Calculate the position of an object during travel
I am trying to track an object every second. I know the start position in mm and the end position in mm (both could be a positive or negative figure. I know the target speed (mm/s) and the acceleration and deceleration (mm/s^2) which could be different values.
What I am trying to calculate is the position of the object each second. I was originally coming at this by trying to calculate the distance travelled and then either adding or subtracting depending on the direction but my calculations seemed really wrong. Also I need to account for the possibility that the accel and/or decel may be so slow that the object never actually reaches full speed.

I can help you do what you want, it seems like a pretty standard physics calculation. I would need to know what if the object Is either accelerating or decelerating for the whole time Interval, or if there is a period of coasting in the middle.
Once I've got the job, I'm sure I Can get the results back to you very quickly.
