Autonomous Code Resources?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could link me to resources on code for the autonomous code. I also provided all of my code so far incase anyone wanted to provide more indepth help.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

What happens when you run the code?

Here is a link to the Autonomous Section of the FRC 0 to Autonomous video!

I have this saved in a document that gets shared with our students every year, should be quite handy for you!

One thing to note, since they only deal with a drivetrain in this video…
You can add as many system calls and waits as you want in your autonomousPeriodic method (provided you have the time). Just remember that a method will flow from the top and work down! Be mindful of the sequencing in which you tell things to move. :slight_smile:
