piROBO Joystck RaspberryPi L298n

piROBO is a robot controlled by the l298n motor controller and the RaspberryPi, the Joystick used here is a Logitich Attack 3 - almost any joystick can be used with my code. I have used the pygame library to read inputs from the joystick, there have been complains that pygame doesn't so well with the pi because of some sdl issues bt after a few hours of tinkering i got to make it work right with cpu usage going from low to average as opposed to a 100% being experienced by some users!! You can get my code off github

Enough chit-chat let's watch a video:
