Team Update - 2012-03-13

Nothing game changing, just a warning about CPU usage on the cRIO and Driver's Station.

Quote:
GAME
Caution about CPU Usage

During the first two weeks we have observed a substantial number of teams with communications issues caused by CPU saturation. Saturating the CPU on either your cRIO or Driverís Station computer can compromise your communications and cause your robot response to lag or drop completely. cRIO CPU usage can be monitored via the Driverís Station Charts tab or the Driver Station Log File Viewer, more information on this utility is available on the Driver Station Kit of Parts page. Driverís Station CPU usage can be viewed using the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

As a reminder, wireless control of robots in the pits is prohibited per section 4.3.1 of the Administrative manual. Additionally, we would highly recommend teams to connect to their DAP 1522 Robot Radio via Ethernet when tethering in the pits and leave the cRIO to Robot Radio connection in place.

Good luck in Week 3!

Re: Team Update - 2012-03-13

Honestly, I am shocked that the GDC is not weighing in on the events that happened at GTR. By not updating the rules, are they condoning them?

They're probably still discussing it. At least, I hope they are.

I'm sure they're no condoning it, but I think making touching the co-op bridge while teams are balancing illegal is going to be a little counter productive. The point is to get teams to cooperate. By making it illegal for teams to interfere in it, they're still going against the SPIRIT of FIRST, but you're taking some team's opinions/input out of the coopertition bridge.

Not that I want to start an argument about it......

Re: Team Update - 2012-03-13

They could simply append a blue box saying that interfering with a coopertition balance is against the spirit of the game. It wouldn't need to have a penalty associated with it. If they wanted one, it could be "Strategies aimed at interfering with a coopertition balance are not in the spirit of the FRC and are not allowed" Violation: Red Card

Re: Team Update - 2012-03-13

I assume that 3-4 days of talk was not enough for the GDC to reach a satisfactory, definite, solid conclusion on how to address GTR-East.

Re: Team Update - 2012-03-13

It might just be that the GDC chooses not to comment on this one. I can only think of one time they've changed a rule due to a team's actions (the infamous WildStang Stack of '07), and I don't think there's a good way to change this rule.

Frankly, if the reaction was any indication, the heaps of scorn placed on a team trying such a stunt should be deterrent enough.

Re: Team Update - 2012-03-13

Not to derail, but anyone care to explain the infamous robots in 2007 and 2008? I would love to learn about them.
