My team has not competed since 2020. I am working on creating an FRC bot in this off season to teach underclassman how to navigate and operate LabView. The students have designed the chassis to be a “four wheel direct drive” in that there is 1 independent motor for each wheel.
The issue we are having is this:
The bot is not moving forward or backward. The motor controllers are not displaying any light codes besides idle, but when the joystick is about 50% pushed they flash green or red (depending on forwards or backwards) for a fraction of a second, in the way they should be working.
It is turning left and right correctly.
Bellow is the teleop code.
