unofficial answer for: autonomous to joystick

OPs original question:link text

There are two ways that I can perceive your question. One is if you are the student and are driving, if that is the case then the robot will change from auton to driver control or user control, what you call joystick, from the refs changing it. Now if you are at home then you have to have either a competition switch to change back and forth or I’ve heard that there is a way to do it with robotC. Now if you are an EP and are running a tournament and using the control software, I have no idea for you. The robot will start in user control unless you specifically state it in the code or are using some kind of switch. I hope this helps, i’m generally not super clear the first time around so if you don’t understand something just ask.
