I’m trying to figure out where to connect the REV Color Sensor V3 for the color wheel for the FRC Infinite Recharge competition. I know its supposed to be connected to the I2C port on the RoboRIO, but there is something telling me to connect it to the motor controlling the wheel
Because to me, it makes sense to connect the color sensor port to this AndyMark built-in encoder, that way values are being sent to the motor itself rather than to the RoboRio, and trying to link the two electronics via two separate commands, one for detecting color values, and one to run the motor. That’s my logic
So its either the I2C port or the motor
If anyone can help me understand where to connect the color sensor, that would be great.
It must be plugged into the I2C port on the roboRIO. Check out the Using the Color Sensor V3 for Infinite Recharge Video, software libraries, and example code under the FRC 2020 Infinite Recharge Resources section of the product page.
