Here is a copy of my code.
Please comment on it! I know i could just do the import "*" thing but i chose not to for future references!
If you have any questions please ask, but otherwise my comments in the code seem pretty straight forward!

From first glance I see nothing absolutely deadly in your code. But watch out with your Fluffy.setExpiration(5.0);
5 seconds may not seem like much, but when you're on the field that's like an hour!

Also, '[code]' is fun. :P

haha thanks for telling about the the '[code]' thing it looks alot better now!

WOAH!!! DOUBLE SOLENOIDS!!! ALL THE WAY (you guys get the rest)

It's a 'double rainbow' joke. I did get a kick out of 'fluffy' but agree that five seconds is enough for your robot to do serious damage to itself and things around it.
You do feed him a LOT though... Really, you only need to feed him once per loop. In your teleop loop there, you feed him six times every loop! Hope you take him for lots of walks!

Erm. Bad jokes aside, it looks good - very well commented especially. Few questions though:
Does the dead reckoning [i.e. based solely on time] autonomous work consistently (if you've tested it)? From past experience I find that dead reckoning is subject to even the slightest mechanical or electrical change.
Have there been any problems with having the arm RobotDrive try to access channel 0? If it's only one speed controller, and it's not quite a 'drive', why are you using RobotDrive instead of just making a Jaguar?

Also - I know i could just do the import "*" thing but i chose not to for future references!
There are lots of arguments for NOT importing everything in the package - like a slower compile time (especially considering WPIlib builds pretty slowly in the first place), easily seeing what your code is made of, etc. So good job choosing not to!

well the arm is two window motors running in snyc on port 3 because im using a split pwm cable. I dont really know how to program it. I have not tested the autonomus because me team doesnt realize that a programmer should get some time with the robot, and could you give me any help on how to run my arm, on a joystick, im using a game controller with two joysticks, the left is for arcade drive and the right i want to be bor the arm. and i do have my arm declared as a jaguar in a spot too.

i do need help though i want to stop my arm when it hits a limit switch, now ive searched CD and cant quite figure it out, but when it is triggered i want my arm to stop and when it is not triggered i want my arm to drive. How might i go about doing this. btw. this would replace the timer reference in my autonomy. Please help!!!!:ahh:

I'm not 100% on what you mean, but if you want your arm to move only while the trigger is being held, you'd have to use a conditional, an essential in any programming language.


public void operatorControl() {
if(joystick.getTrigger()) {

// move the arm based on the joystick's Y-axis
arm.set(joystick.getY());

} else {

/* stop the arm if the trigger isn't held down
* useful note: the arm will remain in it's position
* until you move it again. this simply stops the arm
* from moving, not sets it back down in
* it's starting position. you can code this easily.
*/
arm.set(0.0);

}

/* just for reference, you would still be able
to drive if the trigger is not held down. */
robotDrive.drive(joystick);

}

beware of the logic here, as if the limit switch is triggered there is no way to get the arm off of the switch :)

my solution to this is to rather than stop, prohibit movement in one direction.

pseudo code would look something like this.

if(limit == true && y>1)
stop();
else
arm.run(js.getY);

This is somewhat what i want to do, i only want the switch to be powered in auto. so then i can extend past it to floor load, and i just want the switch to turn off the arm when the arm hits the switch. im just clueless right now.
