The communication tides are shifting...

After today's lack-luster performance from the FMS on the Einstein field, many people are beginning to lose faith in the FMS and current mode of communication. I happen to be one of them. Problems began at Regionals, and were exacerbated on Einstein. Common sense says that if a robot and DS ran fine in Match 1, if nothing changed between Match 1 and Match 2, the robot should preform just as well in Match 2. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

It might be time for FIRST to shift from their current setup to a more robust and reliable way for robots to talk with the field and DS's.

What say you?
