Joystick Control – Differential Drive

I think I am the last person on the planet to buy a Logitech joystick for use with my Mindstorms NXT robots.  Anyway, I did buy one of these cool devices a few weeks back and finally had some time to play with it.  With a simple RobotC program, you can use a joystick to control your robot.  It was almost too easy.  I did not like the “Tank Drive” samples.  They were difficult to control.  I wrote some code to utilize only one joystick to control movement for the same differential drive robot.


I wanted to reuse my differential drive module, and it worked flawlessly.  Here is the code for the differential drive (DiffDrive.h).  What is really cool, is this is the same exact code used in my framework to drive a robot.  I love reuse!
