Answered: Pre-Autonomous Code

What are robots allowed to do within the pre-autonomous task of the competition template?

I understand that it is legal to clear encoders, read sensors, etc., but is it OK if the robot receives instructions via the joystick before the match begins. To clarify, I don’t mean drive the robot around to position it, I just want to send it messages via the joystick to fill a similar role as the buttons on the LCD Display.


We apologize for the delay in answering this question. Yes, this would be legal.

Thanks! No worries about the delay
