Re: Team Fusion #364, Bayou Regional, FMS Woes
We ran our robot for 20 minutes in the practice field wirelessly. Made 30/30 shots, and it ran flawlessly. Right in front of one of the FTA. I asked him what he thought and he blamed the robot still.
I'm sorry, we worked for 3 days, completely replaced all the control system, replaced our code with basic drive code. It always worked out of the pit, but never on the field.
I call bullcrap on it being us. I'm an experienced LabVIEW programmer, 4th year computer engineering student, and very knowledgeable in electrical. Our robot is wired and configured properly.
FMS cost us every single match. We never ran a single match without disconnection. We would disconnect at any time. Before the match, during autonomous, or during teleop.
I hope FIRST figures out what's going on, because there is nothing more depressing in FIRST to see your robot go on the field knowing it's not going to work.
