Re: Pressure on Drive Team
I just want to state a few opinions.....as a driver and a programmer....
1. Driving seems to me...to be an innate ability. Everyone can do it....some better than others. Everyone should be able to do it, else the programming team is not doing their job.
2. A programmer should be a driver, for at least a few practice rounds, so he/she can make the robot easy to drive. If this is not possible, at least have the drivers interact with the programmer so he/she can make tweaks to the controls according to their wishes.
3. Drivers feel less pressure when they feel confident about their robot and about their control over the robot.
