Setting the default autonomous command
Since a command is simply one or more actions (behaviors) that the robot performs, it makes sense to describe the autonomous operation of a robot as a command. While it could be a single command, it is more likely going to be a command group (a group of commands that happen together).
To designate a command that runs when the robot starts during the autonomous period of a competition:
- Select the robot in the robot program description
- Fill in the Autonomous command field with the command that should run when the robot is placed in autonomous mode. This is a drop-down field and will give you the option to select any command that has been defined.
- Set the parameters the command takes, if any
When the robot is put into autonomous mode, the defined Autonomous command will be scheduled.
