FIRST RObotics
« on: February 28, 2009, 10:40:28 PM »
Any Idea What comes in the crates there given I know its $6000 of stuff my high schools starting a team next year and I'm going to start learning... ex motors, mcu sensors etc.

I know the radio is pre made code because the code is exetremely hard
my english teacher once said, "dont talk about what you dont know in public...."

so I replied the truth, " Exactly why I dont ever talk about English."

The first robtics competition happens annually, each year they send each team two crates of stuff.... I was wondering whats innthe crates and what you need to learn etc. and what I canget along the lines of the stuff so that I could work with that stuff a little bit(a think the main thing is mechanical engineering and programming most of the sensors are bught pre made)

ohhh, id say parts (sensors, mcu's, servos, chassis material, general electronics...) that sorta stuff. well to work with the stuff you would need a basic knowledge of electronics, but this does depend on how sophisticated the parts are.

They tell you exactly what you should get in the crates on the website. Heres this years parts list:

The best improvement this year was the cRIO but the parts were expensive were in debt again.
