3 Software and Programming 2006 What is It? Where Does it Go? What are the Tricks? How do We Make It Work? What Else Do We Need to Know?

4 Where Does the Software Go? PC – Robot IFI Loader (1 st ) Dashboard Viewer C18 Compiler PC – Camera CMUcam2PICASA PC – Design AutoCadLabView MPLAB CBOT Compiler EZ C Robot Controller Master Code (1 st ) Program Code Prog

5 Where does the software come from? CDs in Kit MPLAB CBOT – Robot Code Compiler LabView – Control System Simulation Picasa – Google Digital Camera IFI Loader Robot Master Code Robot Default Code Java for CMUcam2 Camera PC Display Compiler Updates

6 IFI Robotics Web Downloads IFI_Loader v (zip, ) Must be used with the 2006 Robot Controller. IFI_Loader v (zip, ) FRC DDT Code v2.2/v2.4 (zip, ) for use with the IFI Loader Dynamic Debug Tool only, instructions included. Program Port Y-Cable (pdf, ) see Printf statements while connected to the Breaker Panel, wiring diagram for Y-Cable. Device Reader (zip, ) for reading and restoring Code in a RC (can not modify the code), instructions included. This information is available at

7 IFI Robotics Web Downloads 2005 RC User Default Code ver2.2 (zip, ) No camera code, works with MPLAB & Compiler that came in 2005 FIRST kit RC User Default Code ver2.4 (zip, ), with camera code - works only with C18 Compiler (ver 2.4) from Microchip RC Master Code version 10 (zip, ), "How To" instructions included RC Master Code version 11 (zip, ), "How To" instructions included. (Corrects possible motor jump at "Link") Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) C Programming This information is available at

22 I am not looking for trade secrets, or a jump on how the game is to work this year. I am interested in the mechanics and sequence of getting all the software where it needs to go and verifying it is operating correctly. I just want to tell the teams how to get their robot and laptop up and running. Last year there were some seriously quirky sequences, patches and extra downloads that were required just to get the compiler to compile the default code, and I don’t think that that is any kind of fair to rookie teams. I want to tell them what they have to get from where, how to install it, in what order it has to be installed, what else they have to do to make it run, what they can do when it does, and how they would know if it is even downloaded, unzipped, installed, and functioning correctly. Can I get the file names, versions, how it is going to be packaged, what will have to be downloaded off of what website, what works with what, needs what before it can be used, what is independent, does it still need a loader, do we still operate in an MPLAB IDE environment, Autodesk AutoCad (Ought-to-Cad), 3-D modeling, etc. I would be happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement. I am trusted with proprietary data at work and understand the safeguards.
