I’m kinda new to our team so “the best build season yet,” is just what i’ve been told.
Anyway, we have had a usable product aside from minor changes since Friday night. Tonight we needed an autonomous program and some minor things such as graphics. At about 8:30 tonight, our programmer walked in as our robot shuts down randomly while we were driving. After further inspection we traced our power to the cRio. Our cRio broke the night before shipdate.:ahh: Now we’ll have some fundraising work to get another. And we want 2 in case any brake at competition. That’s $3,000 to raise in apx. 2 :ahh: weeks b/c we need it to be shipped here before competition.
On a lighter note, everything has been working great until then. We’ve got a lot of driving time and I’ll post some pictures on Wednesday (I hope).
Check the battery - make sure it is charged. Check 24V going to the controller. If that looks ok, call in tomorrow to get it swapped out. We will need details on how your system was wired (controller grounded, motors, in use, etc.).
Call NI/FIRST/KwikByte(for DS) to determine how broken your system actually is. All the hardware provided today is fairly new and there are many bugs that still need to be worked out. They might be able to send you a replacement also.
