Northern Force 172, what do you think of this POWER-UP 8-Bit avatar options?
The programming team met with the design team to help the programmers have a better vision on what they need to make for the 2015 robot.
The team took last years prototype robot and began writing code so that the drive team could have another robot to practice with. The team has run into a code that complies, but does not run. It has given them an error that says there is “no joystick detected”. The new web based configuration tool rocks! The team was able to very quickly assign ids to talons and update firmware with it. The team has figured out that deploying code and debugging code on the roborio is much easier than with the crio. Next, this team wants to update the computers to have the same program on each and continually debug the code.
Legacy Chassis Team:
This team has found that the chassis is bricked, if they still want to get it driving it will need to be re-imaged/unbricked. Next this team will need to install the latest firmware to unbrick the chassis, they will also need to debug it to get another working chassis.
Scouting App Team:
They will be continually coding, up next they will finish the subsystems for the android application. They also need to start a new code for a blue tooth server and client.
The Electrical Team has been working on completing the electrical test board and installing it onto a test chassis so the Programming team to begin installing the code. Wiring for a second electrical board has begun, and it will be installed on the competition robot next week.
