New product on Andymark, intended to provide diagnostic information directly on the robot. I REALLY like the idea of helping with lining up for autonomous, as well as being able to see battery just by turning on the robot.;
The INSIGHTLT is the first of a kind diagnostic display for your competitive robot. With this simple, lightweight and easy to use component, you will be able to get the information you want directly from your controller in ways never before possible. No radio, no driver station. Nothing between you and your data!
This new device is made by Bit Built Technologies, and designed for the FRC market.
The INSIGHTLT can help:
In the queue line: Power on your bot to get quick info like air pressure, battery voltage, sensor checks. Anything your controller knows, you will too.
Setting up for Auto Mode: Ever wave your hands like a crazy person to the driver behind the glass when lining up for auto? Get alignment data from cameras, line sensors, or rangfinders right at the bot.
In the pits: After a match, the pit crew can go through a systems check and see if anything is out of tolerance.
During Development: Ever get frustrated with the radio? Skip the in-between and get info straight from the source. This was the main reason the INSIGHTLT was developed in the first place.
How does it work?
Plug the tethered cable from the display into the I2C port (white NXT connector) on the Digital
Side Car. The INSIGHTLT instantly displays whatever your code on the robot controller is sending. Just include our easy to use software in your robot code and connect whatever information you want displayed.
