Before the competition is announced, we wanted to show our new members how the basics of the FIRST robot operates, and also to refresh our knowledge of how everything works. So we rebuilt a small little chasis with a simple 4 motor drive. We have 2 CIM Motors fitted into Andy Mark CIMple box which drives a chain to the wheels.
So anyway, the problem is whenever we engage teleop, the Jaguars connected to the motors will flash red, the motors will turn for half a second, then the motors lose signal and blink yellow.
We’ve really been trying everything we could possibly think of. We’ve reformatted the cRIO, we’ve remade the program several times over, we’ve checked all the wiring. Still can’t figure it out.
I’m really sorry about the pictures of the code being, err, actual pictures instead of a screenshot, but I was being kicked out of our room so I had to take them quickly We’re coding in Labview.
If there are any questions about the code I can answer them.
Right before I went home today, we found that if we just plugged in one motors PWM cable, that one motor would work. But only in 2 directions, foreward and left. If the joystick was moved to the right, or down, the Jag would flash red and the signal would be cut.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! It’s really been bothering us for about a week and a half now. Thanks!
