Control System Setup Driver Station and cRIO Assumes you have: • Setup and wired the robot electronics, • Power has been applied • LED check is complete (ref 2.0 Getting Started, “Confirmation of LED Status ….”)


Disclaimer This presentation was written BEFORE the official rules release. It is possible that some items in here may not apply


Classmate Setup

(Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started: 2.3 Driver Station Setup)

• Power up Classmate Laptop • Automatically installs => Windows Setup • Name: “Teamxxxx” Org: FIRST • AVG Setup – skip update for now … • Key: 8FIRST-N0T27-LEECS-8ZNAR-Y2ENL-8BFMA-PFYJ

• Reboot? Yes, Login to DRIVER account • Enter Team Number, click EXIT • Login to DEVELOPERS Account


Classmate Setup (pg2)

(Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started: 2.3 Driver Station Setup)

• Classmate includes: • XP Pro, NI Labview 8.6, Java, OpenOfice, Cypress Drivers, AVG, Foxit Pdf Reader

• Cautions: • Avoid adding software to the Classmate (except for Windriver tools) • Do: Add a password and limit access • Avoid using for development if possible – keep it CLEAN to ensure optimal performance at competition!


Driver Station QUICK TEST • Start Driver Station • Verify IO Module is responding

IO Module


IO Module Notes • Wire Breadboard with jumpers (not today) • Digital Inputs (DI) are pulled up internally • Outputs at 0-3.3Vdc • You can test with DS • See pinout on next page To: Classmate

cRIO Imaging

(Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started – “Configuring the cRIO”)

• • • •

cRIO does NOT come pre-loaded this year Connect to cRIO to Classmate Ethernet cable to port 1 on cRIO FRC Imaging Tool – re-format/image cRIO • • • •

DO NOT INTERRUPT IMAGING PROCESS! Use wired connection to ensure reliable image. Select: Labview, Format Controller, Enter Team ID (team #) Current Image: FRC_2010_v17.zip

(image is in: National Instruments>>Labview8.6>>project>>cRIO Tool>>FRC Images as a zip file)


Our First Program

(Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started – “LOAD PROGRAMMING”)

• ASSUMES you have labview running • If not – Instructor will download program for you • We will use DS today • In general try to avoid using DS for development to keep the DS clean and running optimally, if possible.

• • • •

Launch Labview on DS Click: FRC cRIO Robot Project Enter Project Name & Location IP address – 10.xx.yy.2, Click FINISH • (xxyy = your team number)


Our First Program (pg 2)

(Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started – “LOAD PROGRAMMING”)

• Double Click Robot Main.vi • Click Run Arrow • MAKE SURE ROBOT IS ON BLOCKS • Make sure nothing is going to move unexpectedly

• Try pushing JoyStick. • Wheel Motors should turn.


WIRELESS SETUP

Ref: Manual 2.0 Getting Started – “Configuration of Wireless Components” Also, Manual 5.0 Control System Configuration

• Optional for today (time permitting) • Refer to “Configuration of Wireless Adapter” and “Configuration of Wireless Bridge” in Getting Started manual • Also in 5.0 Control System Configuration Manual
