Last season, my team attempted to try our hand at swerve drive using this module as we saw how powerful it can be. The problem, of course, becomes actually using it.
Our programming team has had quite the time trying to figure all of it out, with PIDs and encoders and everything else, as well as having little to no help from coaches (they’re all build people). One of our main problems has been having to manually line up the wheels with the chassis of our robot every time we want to run it because we can’t find a way to tell our motors that 0 is pointed towards the front of the robot without doing this. This is not practical for competition and there has to be some way around it, we just need a little help, and I’m hoping this is a place to get some.
Also, any advice on getting started with PIDs would be amazing. Thanks!
