Zumo_chase running backwards when it should be forward


#1

Hello! Why does my zumo runs backwards when pixy2 detected the object on the ground level and runs forward when the object is detected above the pixy2? It should be the reverse right?

Thank you.

Hello,
You should run the base test and make sure the motors are connected correctly:

Hi! Yes, I did that test and it is working as described. Anyway, thanks for the reply. If you have other suggestions
I would gladly hear it.

Hello,
Bear in mind that “Left, right, forward and reverse are with respect to an imaginary (and tiny) driver-person sitting on the Zumo and facing forward.”

If your motor directions check out, I’m stumped!

Hi Edward, yes I’m aware of the orientation. I was thinking of editing the code, I’m still trying to figure it out how. Thank you for paying attention.
