What is your controller configuration for your Change Up robot?
Change Up Robot Controller Configuration
We have an x Drive, so we control strafing with the left joystick, and turning with the right joystick.
This really depends on your driver and robot functionality. But for the most part nothing goes on the arrows or x/y/a/b buttons (unless it is rarely used for example to toggle auto sorting off/on) and for a standard change up bot some combination of intake and roller controls are on the bumpers. But this is very subjective as every robot and programming is different so my set up does not necessarily work for everyone else. Also the layout really should be up to the driver as they are the ones who need it to feel comfortable for them.
Also my layout is tank control for the joysticks, intake/index ball on R1, reverse intakes on R2, score on L1 and L2 is reverse rollers although I hardly use that. Also Auto sorting applies to all intaking and scoring buttons as well.
As @Cadaver_42 stated, this is different for every robot. Personally, I have a lot of automation, so I have R1&2 as automated intake/scoring, and L1&2 are manual control. I use a standard tank drive, so it’s a straight left joystick = left base, right joystick = right base. I also have, I believe, X as auton running.
I hope this helps
It is. I used to have a sequence where I had to press y and then x to cut down on “mishaps,” but who needs safety anyways?
Is a fail-safe program for auto sorting not necessary?
There is a reason I don’t do that anymore after that one turning point match.
I may have accidentally shot a bystander during a TP practice via that…
(She was okay so it’s funny now, but was also very scary for obvious reasons)
It’s not completely, necessary, but will increase your driver efficiency and thus your cycle times.
I do have one. L2 is technically the fail-safe. I would rather create a more consistent auto-sort program than rely on fail-safes. I also have a toggle on/off in the most extreme cases although I haven’t touched it since creating it.
