  • Robot Moves by itself with a controller program

    How would you set up a threshold system like you can in ROBOTC in Modkit. When you have a driver control program sometimes the robots move by them selves. In ROBOT C you can set the throttle threshold to 10 so it will not move until the joystick is past the value of 10, preventing the robot from moving by itself.

    Hey Mr. Biggs~

    I do this all the time! You just need to nest operators -
    the green blocks. You'll find that they are all oval in shape, so they can be used as values within one another.

    This is my quickest / easiest method:

    IF joystick A is < 10 AND joysick A is > -10
    Set velocity to 0
    Else, set velocity to Jotstick A, spin forward.

    Since the joystick values range from -100 to 100, a forward velocity of, say, negative 25 would be the same as spinning in reverse at 25 rpms. Forward and reverse handled in just a few blocks!

    All that remains is tweaking the threshold values within the first IF.

    (Let me know if you need a screenshot, and I can probably post one tomorrow (Friday).

    Happy coding and best of luck!
