Is there any way to easily implement motion profiling or odometry on a robot
If you use PROS okapi works, but other than that… no.
odometry is really advanced stuff so you can’t just… implement it. Check out 5225A’s documentation on how this stuff works.
Here are some topics that should help you:
I’m Theo from 7842F, and I’m the programmer for our team.
I’ve been meaning to make this post ever since worlds, but I haven’t had the time to do so. I now finally have some time before my school starts (I still have 1 week of summer
) to show the VEX community our robot and all the different designs we have implemented to make it.
Even though the Turning Point season is way over, the things I will show in this post still applies to this year and VEX in general.
It’s been a while since we released our position tracking document back in October. In the meantime we’ve received a lot of feedback from the VEX community; one thing that we’ve heard a few times, especially, is that while teams understand our reasons for not releasing our entire codebase at the time, they are really interested in seeing at least some of our code, so that they can get a more concrete understanding of what we’re talking about. So, we’re going to do that today; attac…
As you can probably tell from my post history, I’m not nearly as active here as I should be. For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Nick Mertin, and I was the head programmer for Team 5225A, The E-Bots PiLons during the 2017-2018, In The Zone season. I have since graduated, but still remain a mentor for the team.
Over the past couple of months, myself and the other programming team members and alumni, by popular demand, have been working on a document describing our Absol…
Thanks for the shout-out; we also now have
a couple videos up explaining odometry and other relevant programming topics. This may be a more approachable/easier-to-understand format than the doc.
Also, if you’re going to get into any odometry-like math, I would highly recommend that you learn vectors first if you haven’t already. 3Blue1Brown has
a great video on this, and many more on other relevant topics.
I mean… it’s much less complicated that what 5225A’s document makes it out to be.
