This control is used with a movement panel. When the movement panel is used (i.e. your robot is moving forward, left, right, etc) then the floor map control will begin drawing a line in the direction of your robot. Use this control to keep track of where your robot has been. This is not a navigation control, it merely draws a line of direction and distanced that your robot has traveled over time for informational purposes.

By default, the Config values specified will not work with your specific application. You will need to configure your own specific values. Keep in mind that different terrain surfaces will affect the speed. If you configure your speed of rotation once, it may not be 100% applicable on another surface. Carpets cause a lot of grief with floor mapping and make it difficult to find an accurate consistent speed of rotation.
