I want to program with LabView this year, so I started learning it online. During the simple autonomous lesson where you set the speeds for the motor, I am really confused about the x and y speed inputs. If x=0.25 and y=0.5 then it turns right and if they are reversed, it turns left??? This doesn’t really make sense. Is it turning with no forward movement or still moving forward, just turning a little?
Although it seems somewhat confusing, the values you put into the motor drive are joystick “x” and “y” values. So to go forward, set the “y-axis” value to a positive number, and “x-axis” value to zero. To turn, (assuming you are using arcade drive) set the “x-axis” value to a positive number to turn right, a negative number to turn left.
