There are a lot of rough and protruding edges on the robot. Unless we file, we probably won't be able to pass inspection.

Things we learned / Consider how limit switch wires get attached
« Last post by Louis L on February 20, 2018, 11:38:03 PM »
A limit switch is no good if we can't attach wires to it. Make sure there is room for a wire and crimped-on connector. And there needs to be room to install and remove that connector.

Most limit switches use narrow connectors which are more difficult to get than the standard too-wide connectors. Using the correct size is important for fit and securely holding it in place.

Robot Software / Re: autonomous modes

Here are the current autonomous modes:

From the driver's point of view:
  • AutoRun - cross the baseline. This is the default command. This goes straight, no additional steering.
  • Robot on left, do switch - Only do switch if it's on your side. Otherwise, do AutoRun.
  • Robot on left, do scale - Only do scale if it's on your side. Otherwise, do AutoRun
  • Robot on left, do switch or scale - Only do if it's on your side. Switch has higher priority than Scale
  • Robot on left, do switch or scale - Only do if it's on your side. Scale has higher priority than Switch
  • Robot on right, do switch - Only do switch if it's on your side. Otherwise, do AutoRun.
  • Robot on right, do scale - Only do scale if it's on your side. Otherwise, do AutoRun
  • Robot on right, do switch or scale - Only do if it's on your side. Switch has higher priority than Scale
  • Robot on right, do switch or scale - Only do if it's on your side. Scale has higher priority than Switch
  • Robot right of center, on right edge of the middle alliance station (adjacent to right alliance station) - go left or right depending on selection.
  • Do nothing.
