VRC 7682 Wingus & Dingus - How's My Driving? 2015 RECF Educational Video Challenge submission. Targeted at new teams this year we're introducing some basic joystick to robot/motor control options and having a little fun along the way. Choosing an appropriate joystick mapping is really important and often dependant on what style of robot you're building but there are some variations and extra features we'll show you.
In order to further perfect and make efficient our bot's design, our team used calculus to calculate the inefficiencies where the wheels weren't contributing or were actively subtracting from our overall turn capabilities. In this video, we explain how we went through this applicable process.
VEX VRC ID TGZ5 Team tgz5- maintenance on my wheel? 2015 RECF Educational Video Challenge submission. Intended for new teams this year we are introducing maintenance for the wheels, to protect motors in driver mode, improve the accuracy of autonomous mode. Hopefully this video helps to have a better performance in the field and extend the lifetime of your wheel.
