We’re a bit heavy with digital inputs this year, so we had to go to analog for our autonomous mode switch. This gives us six options using one input.

I gotta make us one of those. How did you make it?

Way to be an engineer! Fortunately, we have enough digital inputs; or maybe we just not do have enough autonomous modes!

I don’t get it. How is a pot soldered to a PWM going to set your auton mode?

I suppose calling it a pot isn’t too far off. It’s a rotary switch with resistors, so it acts like a pot with specific discrete values. If I’m right, it’s going to an analog input on the RC. The code will read the voltage and use it to decide what to do.
