Hi, recently I have noticed how much NI’s FRC driver station just kills my laptop’s batter and takes up significantly larger amounts of resources than I would expect for basically I client interface. Are there any alternatives?
I have also been debating trying to create my own version of it that
a) doesn’t hog resources
b) doesn’t need to be installed with the entire NI package
c) doesn’t have labview a dependency (I strongly dislike bloatware)
If there isn’t an alternative, would other people be up to collaborating and creating a better driver station?
One more question, if we did create another driver station, can we use it in competition? Or would we risk having issues with the field system?
Ok, so only NI Driverstation for actual competition and Conductor (driverstation alternative) is disabled on Windows for safety issues. And apparently NI Driverstation is actually doing a lot behind the scenes. Duly noted.
