Is it only us or do other teams see random controller disconnects with V5 too?
We fight quite frequent disconnects, both in the lab as well as on the tournaments. It came to the point that the drivers are taking a screw with them to the field so they could press the reset button on the controller in case the disconnect happens mid-match.
Symptoms: Robot stops taking input and won’t reconnect on its own. If you reset the controller, it would reconnect in about 15s, so you can keep driving for the rest of the match. We have had disconnect like this in 2 qualification matches during the last tournament and one during the skills run, so you can imagine the impact on an otherwise very experienced and highly scoring MS team…
Are there any diagnostic tools or techniques that would allow us to eliminate or at least better investigate the issue?
I recall that for VexNET2, there apparently was a way for field technicians to observe the radio channels and gather some telemetry to judge and explain dropouts. Is there anything like that available for V5 radio?
