Is there a way to run the cortex brain without having to connect a controller to it? I only want to run an autonomous program on it but it won’t start unless I connect a controller which is annoying to have to keep doing.
Plug the programming cable into the computer and the cortex. It will boot
Change the communication type to “USB Only” through Robot > Vex Cortex Communcation Mode > USB Only.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
Also, if you’re being annoyed by having to connect the cortex to your computer, and then to your joystick, and over again and again try the Programming Hardware Kit (for our team, the “wireless debugger”)
You’ll be able to download code through the VEXNet Connection. It’s handy, but I’m not sure if it will be for V5.
It will be obsolete for V5. V5 will natively support wireless downloading/debugging through a direct USB connection between the computer and controller.
