Making a Ports Map By Omar and Jayesh

Task: Create a list of motors/servos and what ports they're connected to

Very often, when we disconnect a motor or servo (maybe on accident), we forget what port we got it from. This even happened to us today when we unplugged the servo that lifts the trough. Because of this hassle, we decided to write out a list of all the motors and servos on our robot and what port they're connected to so we can refer back to it if we ever forget where we took something from again.

Reflections

This didn't take us much time at all and was easy to do, so we might want to make a lot more of things like these in the future to keep ourselves organized. Organization is definitely something we need to work on for this next competitive year, and even small things like these help out with that.
