It would be desirable to know the status of each motor on the robot after each match. The V5 smart motors have the ability to provide this information. We just need to write a monitor code to make it visible to the user.
This should be a specific code just for this purpose that we run in between matches. It will give us the temperature of each motor as well as indicate any serious problems like disconnection or port failures.
Best if it was a graphical view with very clear indications like bright colors etc.
