-As potentiometers have a 250 degree range of rotation, they are used in mechanisms that have limited rotation. Pots are generally seen attached to a robot’s lift tower or the base of a claw and serve to track the positions of the lift and claw respectively. This allows programmers to regulate said position during autonomous as well as driver control. Some teams have also made use of the way pots track angular position to make an autonomous selector from the sensor (([[https://​www.vexforum.com/​index.php/​10477-lcd-screen-opinions-please/​5 | RoboDesigners’ post on VEXForum ​on using a pot as an autonomous selector; VEXForum.]]))+As potentiometers have a 250 degree range of rotation, they are used in mechanisms that have limited rotation.
