Answered: Robot Enabling

Hi, during a scrimmage yesterday in one game our robot did not enable in driver control (after it successfully completed autonomous), we are not sure as to what happened as the robot was connected fully but was not enabled

My team are now wondering, what procedures are there to ensure that this does not happen at worlds?

And what should happen in these situations -

  1. the robot does not enable due to a lose connection between the controller and field control on the playing field

  2. the robot does not enable for any apparent reason

Thank you, we are just seeking answers as we do not want this to happen to us (or any other team for that matter) at the world championships.

Please note that we are not trying to blame people, but to simply find out what to do in this situation.

There are a variety of reasons that could explain what happened. It’s impossible to discern the specific reason from your post. If a situation occurs like this at Worlds, please bring it to the attention of a referee or field manager. They will work with you to help solve the problem.
