Do you struggle to drive forward?
Does Tank Drive make it harder for you to control your robot?
Tired of your parents disliking you?
This is the code that will solve all of your problems!!
It sure can be difficult to drive, especially if you use Tank Drive to control your robot. Using Tank Drive can make it hard to drive in a straight line, leading to swervy robots and missed points.
Our code fixes this! We developed a handy VI that emulates the feel of controlling a car from Rocket League.
The Best Part? The Icon! I made it myself. I’m very proud of it. Also Justin and Wyatt made the sans one which is pretty cool too.
Download the VI’s here!!
It’s on GitHub. Sick.
Edit: Thanks to polyether for suggesting this bottom part here:
Differences between Rocket Drive and Arcade Drive are as follows:
- Rocket Drive uses the right trigger of a controller to go forward, and the left trigger to go backward. Pointing the left joystick left or right changes the direction your robot will turn. Arcade drive only uses the left joystick for movement. This allows for greater precision when driving your robot in a straight line.
- Turning the stick left and right while not using a trigger allows you to turn in place. Turning while using the acceleration or reverse trigger move the robot forward or backward while moving in the direction the stick is pointed.
Rocket Drive allows you to move forward straight easily, because you do not need to touch the joystick when moving. This should let your robot move in a straight line without you swerving.
