Day 14 – Console Peasants

Jack and Ryan discussed how the PlayStation controller will be used to control the robot. They mapped most of the buttons and both joysticks to various robot functions, and also created a small program to print strings such as “Moving forward” or “Instant Speed Boost” when the R2 and X buttons are pressed respectively. The assigned buttons aren’t final, however, and may be subject to change.


The “PS” button (switch servo) and the servo up/down buttons can be used to individually control any servo in the robot, which is especially useful for controlling the robot arm and claw.
