Driver Station Input


#1

Need help resolving an implementation disagreement: locate autonomous configuration switches on driver station or on robot.

So, is the nominal robot gameplay state sequence:
Autonomous-Disabled to Autonomous-Enabled to Autonomous-Disabled…

thus allowing us to read DS station input during the initial Autonomous-Disabled state.

That is the intuitive answer but not clearly defined in the programming guide.:smiley:

I can’t find the post quickly, but we’ve been told that the Driver Station inputs will be communicated to the robot in all states except Autonomous-Enabled. That means you’ll definitely get a chance to read a DS-connected autonomous configuration selector before the match begins.

Out of Autonomous-Disabled mode prior to Autonomous-Enabled. Looking for the right place to initialze. thanks much! R.
