robot-playerjoy is a console-based client that provides planar, differential-drive teleoperation of position2d and position3d devices. In
other words, robot-playerjoy allows you to manually drive your (physical or simulated) robot around. robot-playerjoy uses velocity control,
and so will only work when the underlying driver supports velocity control (most drivers do).
