4 Compact Rio (CRIO) Brain of the Robot Is connected to the Dlink by Ethernet cable Outputs signals to the PD Board and Digital Sidecar Has different slots depending on what your robot does Ex: pneumatics 4

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 5

6 Power Distribution (PD) Board Connected to the CRio Send power out to the motor controls and the circuit breaker 6

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 7

8 Jaguar (Jags) Motor controller Connected to the Sidecar with a PWM wire and to the PD Board Can control the amount of power sent to the motors 8 PWM Connections Power Connections Motor Connections

9 Spikes Like a Jag, it’s a motor controller but it doesn’t vary the amount of power. It’s just on or off. 9

10 CIM Motors Connected to and controlled by the Jags 10 Jag Connections

11 Types of Wires 11 PWM Wires Power Wires

12 Breaker and Battery Battery connected to the breaker Breaker controls the power to the robot. Turn the breaker OFF before messing with any of the wiring!!! 12 Connections Power Button

14 Programming a FRC Robot Cody Stafford 14

15 What is LabVIEW? Why Is programming important? What Robotics programs use LabVIEW? 15

16 LabVIEW Programming basics What is a VI? Robot 16

17 ‘Programming’ Flowchart State hardware that will be used Hardware’s function and speed Decide controller layout Create a flowchart of the program 17

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 18

19 Example Flowchart 19

20 Group ‘Programming’ Flowchart Get into your groups Decide on what hardware you are going to use Create a flowchart for the manipulator your team choose 20
