I was wondering if it would be in violation of any rules to have a "holding" position program at the end of a match while the robot is disabled. I can't find anything that says you can't do this, but I would like to double check. Our hanging mechanism and scoring apparatus, depending on design, may require a small value of PWM to be sent to the motors in order to prevent the lift from moving after hanging, and the same is true for the scoring mechanism. My intent is to prevent the robots from hanging at the end of a match, then disablement rolls around and the robot just slowly and dejectedly sinks back down because it cannot passively hold itself up. All this would be under the assumption that if the robot begins to move (except to hold itself in its current position), the robot would be in violation of the "not accepting field commands," and action would be taken in accordance with the head ref. So, would it be permissible to activate motors and pneumatics after a match is over in order to hold a robot in its current position?
Thanks in advance,
