How to use Myro Motors

motors(leftWheelPower,rightWheelPower)

The motors(lWP,rWP) function is used to move the robot forward or backward with variable power to the two wheels.

The leftWheelPower & rightWheelPower parameters are between -1 (for full speed backward) and 1 (full speed forward).

Motors(lWP,rWP) does not take in a time parameter, so the robot will continue to run until it encounters a stop() or other incompatible command.

Example

This code will turn the robot in a circle to the left in place for 3 seconds,
then stop, turn in place to the right for 3 seconds, then go backward for
10 seconds and stop.

def goRobotGo():

from myro import *
initialize()
motors(-1,1)
wait(3)
stop()
motors(1,-1)
wait(3)
backward(1,10)
goRobotGo()
