4 Compact Rio (CRIO) Brain of the Robot Is connected to the Dlink by Ethernet cableOutputs signals to the PD Board and Digital SidecarHas different slots depending on what your robot doesEx: pneumatics
5 Dlink and Camera Dlink Router that the drive station connects to Camera so the drivers can see from the robot’s perspective on the dashboard
6 Power Distribution (PD) Board Connected to the CRioSend power out to the motor controls and the circuit breaker
7 Digital Sidecar Gets power from the PD board and signal from the CRio Has signal outputs for the motor controls, servos, and the signal light
8 Jaguar (Jags) Motor controller Motor ConnectionsMotor controllerConnected to the Sidecar with a PWM wire and to the PD BoardCan control the amount of power sent to the motorsPower ConnectionsPWM Connections
9 SpikesLike a Jag, it’s a motor controller but it doesn’t vary the amount of power. It’s just on or off.

18 ‘Programming’ Flowchart Example You have a robot with two motors, two jags, a CRio, and an Xbox control. You want the motors to run at ½ speed whenever you hit forward on the right stick but that is all you want it to do
