When using PathWeaver to visualize paths, you have to give each point in the path a ‘heading’ using the tangent lines. When you put the path points into the TrajectoryGenerator, the intermediate paths don’t have headings associated with them. The headings of the points in PathWeaver make a difference in how the path is visualized. See the pics below. The path points are approximately what the example uses in the tutorial.
Is PathWeaver a good tool for visualizing paths if you’re using the WPI TrajectoryGenerator, or is there a technique that we should be applying to compensate for this, or is there a better tool?
Should we be loading paths from PW instead?
