How it works
This application makes use of a Tulip I/O Gateway and a foot pedal, in order to test whether your foot pedal 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 foot pedal, the box should turn green and will display the count of the number of times the user presses down on the foot pedal 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 an I/O Gateway and a foot pedal and get it functioning.
