Pathing: a simplified approach
by: rpappa

In 2018, FRC Team 340 explored an approach to pathing that aimed to make the process extremely simple.

A common problem in robotics applications is developing a path planning and following system that enables robots to perform pre-planned motions. In 2018, FRC Team 340 explored an approach to pathing that aimed to make the process extremely simple. It relies on two drive encoders and a gyroscope. This approach is based off parametric equations (especially Bezier curves) and simple differential calculus. The complexity of any given implementation can be adjusted as desired.
