The goal for project 3, was to create a two motor truck/cab that would have a trailer attached at a joint  with a gyro sensor attached to the top of the joint and a second gyro sensor mounted on on to the actual cab.  The code that we developed would drive the trailer in reverse and maintain a constant control of the system. This first challenge had to be done with only the gyro sensor attached to the joint.  The second challenge required the truck/cab to maintain a circular path in reverse. For this portion of the project, the second gyroscope would come in to play.
