Driver Skills on a Macro

Just wondering, would it be legal to use your skills auton routine during driver skills? As in set the auton to run off of a button and just use your auton during driver control, kind of like a big, complex macro? I understand it’s against the idea of driver being under driver control, but just wondering if you could legally still use your auton routine.


Yes, you are allowed to do so. However, if you were to do so, I would recommend programming an override button, in order to take over in case of the robot mis performing. But to answer your question, yes, you can.


theoretically you would always want to do this, with auton skills you can ensure that you’re taking the absolute fastest routes and that your robot is performing to the maximum of its capacity, plus it eliminates human error, but in practice, teams rarely ever have higher programming skills than driver skills.

Some world champion skills winners have actually run their programming skills for the entire driver skills. Or at least for first 20-30 seconds.
