How it works

This application makes use of a Tulip gateway and a Footpedal, in order to test whether your footpedal is connected and is functioning correctly. When the application is opened, the user has the option on the bottom navigator bar to select whether they have connected their device via USB or GPIO. The user is then prompted with a screen showing a grey box, and once the user presses down on the footpedal, the box should turn green and will display the count of the number of times the user presses down on the footpedal if the device is connected correctly and is working as intended. Otherwise, the user has the option to access a support article which provides relevant instructions regarding how to setup a gateway and a footpedal and get it functioning.
