Dunno if your bot has the capabilities to do it, might need a computer to talk to.

    Urgh just re-read your thing, if your thing is as inaccurate as you said, you probably won't be able to simulate it, though you should, but I'll just assume this is a tight budget project. One thing you could do is like leave a reflector at the origin and using a laser or something to bounce off it, assuming you have line of sight to it, but that would only give the distance, not the angle, so you wouldn't be able to get the components.

    The analog accelerometer would be your best bet, attach it to the center of rotation, and as long as you know how many degrees you turned, you can derive the velocity and keep a constant track of it.
    It isn`t a tight budget project, it is just that I am only allowed to use shitty vex parts for the competition lol.

    I`ll try your suggestion, it could take a while to prototype though.



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?
