Little Truckie - driving class test robot built with VEX IQ

This is a small VEX IQ truck that have one and only one reason to exist. The reason is to teach students to drive by practising diving with it.There is nothing that makes the Little Truckie happier than driving.

The programs for controling Truckie are at:

Truckie - "Easy" To Drive VEX IQ Program for Modkit. Left stick steers. Right stick moves

Truckie - "Hard" To Drive VEX IQ Program for Modkit. One stick for move and steer

 

Truckie - "Hard" To Drive VEX IQ Program for Modkit. One stick for move and steer

With this program you can drive the Truckie or every robot with the same port settings. It is hard to drive with that set up because to have the robot move in the right direction you need to be very precise with the stick. The part of the problem is that this set up uses only one stick to control the movement. You have to chose left or right stick. If you use both it will be a great mess. It is not impossible but it is very hard to do. You probably will never use this stick setting in the VEX competition but practicing this type of setting you will become very precise with the controls and your driving skills will grow a lot. Ones you have master this driving technic you will be more relaxed while you are on the competition.

After you feel satisfied with your driving skills and you have accomplished all the goals you can continue with the competition driving program settings like Truckie - Easy To Drive VEX IQ Program for Modkit.

This program is mainly for controlling Truckie VEX IQ robot.
