Re: paper: Team 1640 "Pivot Drive" LabVIEW Library

Thanks! After the competition season is done, I plan on encouraging my lead programmer to publish the new and improved drive code.

At this point, we physically calibrate the wheels to zero, i.e. loosen the sensor set screw, turn the wheel to the desired angle to be "zero", turn the sensor until the code reports the angle is zero, and then tighten the set screw. The sensors don't seem to drift too much from the angle of the wheel, but we sometimes do need to re-calibrate. We keep meaning to put in auto-calibration code, but we haven't gotten there yet.
