Frequently Asked Questions
What software steps can be used to make robot operation robust with the navX-Micro?
Plan for Catastrophic Sensor FailureAny electronic component can fail. To ensure that your robot can still function during use even if such a failure does occur, your robot software should handle cases when communication with sensors such as the navX-Micro is disrupted.
An easy way to accomplish this is to use the “isConnected()” indication, and only use navX-Micro sensor data to control your robot when this is true.
Additionally, displaying whether the robot software is connected to the navX-Micro circuit board on the driver “dashboard” can help the drivers quickly detect a connection problem.
