ps2 delay in robot control Answered

hi, im a robotics enthusiast. i have managed to integrate a ps2 controller to control a 2 wheel drive motor. im using Atmega8535 microC. however one problem that i encounter is that the robot has delayed response. ie: when a button is pressed on the ps2 controller, the robot needs some time before it reacts to the command. please gv some suggestions and advice. thnx.

 If I understand you correctly you already have your Playstation controller connected and usable by your ATmega.  I would suggest a counter that increments and acts upon the most recent playstation commands after the counter gets to where it needs to get.  It's a delay.  Can you try that?
