Adjust Drive Speed

I know this has be addressed somewhere already, but I can’t find it in the sea of posts on this forum.

V5 Blocks
4 motor drive train
drive train assigned to controller joysticks in setup
how can we cut the velocity in our programming?

Or do we have to list the motors independently and do it that way? (that much we know how to do)

I assume by this you mean that you want to “scale down” the joystick values, so that pushing the stick all the way forward does not make the robot drive forward at 100% speed, but rather at some lower speed.

To do this, you will need to write your own driver control code, which in V5 blocks will require adding the motors individually rather than setting up a drivetrain.


Thank you. That’s what it seemed to be but I didn’t want to miss anything easier if possible. Thanks for your input!
