Auto-Gyro-Twitch

This video demonstrates some upgrades to Twitch, Jr., my linkage-drive robot. It was pretty difficult to drive, so to help I added a yaw rate sensor (gyroscope) and a heading control loop. I also added a mode that automatically selects the wheel positions based on a single joystick input. For more information, click here.
